Heading to Solfest ?

Springing up annually like a wild flower in the Cumbrian meadows, Solfest has evolved continually since its inception in 2003, transitioning from a local shindig, into one of the best loved of the UK’s independent festivals.

Run by a dedicated team and a small army of volunteers, Solfest has stayed true to its anti-corporate roots. This means that art and decor take the place of ubiquitous advertising and the international big names on the mainstage don’t drown out the voices of the hidden gems.

We’re all about eclecticism and although nothing shouts that louder than our handpicked line-ups, spanning genres and eras of music, that most certainly isn’t where it stops. A broad group of very talented people come together each year at Solfest, to create an immersive environment with everything from a creative kid’s area, to an array of interactive site art and even a Healing Garden where you can meditate, do some Yoga or participate in a Shamanic ritual!

GoCarShare Booking System

We’ve introduced a new booking system:

Passengers ‘book’ the journey. Once the driver has accepted, the passenger will be asked to prepay via PayPal.

A week after the journey has been completed we will transfer the money to the driver, minus our fee of 15%, which usually works out as just a couple of pounds. Drivers are welcome to factor this cost into the price they quote to take a passenger.

We don’t enforce the booking system, but it is important to use because:

1.     It prevents people dropping out at the last minute so offers the drivers security.

2.     It helps ensures the safety of the platform; everyone is trackable.

3.     This is our way of funding the development of GoCarShare and ensuring that we are here next year too.

 We hope you value GoCarShare and support us in using the booking system. Please shoot through any questions at hello@gocarshare.com
