Review: Party In The Pines 09/08/2014

It’s hard to believe how hot the day was looking at Sunday’s wind and constant down pour, all that can be said about that is thank you for the weather we did get on Saturday 9th August.

The sun beaming through the trees and people just relaxing and listening to the music, taking in a beer or too. From previous Pines it’s always a pattern of how the day goes over at the main stage especially.

People turn up in friend groups pitch a seat, set down the cooler box and face the stage. People taking it steady and enjoying the weather. At first arrival to pines you can be mistaken to think you’re in for something quite mellow but once the sun goes down and the lazers and stage lighting comes on the par lovers jump to life. Filling the clearing with singing, dancing and beaming smiles of enjoyment.

The day appeared to go pretty smooth and everyone we met were very friendly and having a good time. The new toilet arrangement is probably not the most exciting thing to talk about but it was a massive improvement. The Pines team have worked hard to build a new toilet block and kudos to those two ladies who sat outside it all day with girls toilet essentials for nothing but donations in a bucket.

The festival spirit was high and both stages were outstanding in organisation and arrangement. The main stage ran by Brad from Acid Peacock promotions saw a smooth stream of Indie bands take to the stage. Including bands locally and further a far. Dirty Sterling as always had us and every other Party In The Pines fan up at the front. It is a little harder in the daytime to draw in a front of stage crowd to bands but you could tell everyone was taking it in and from the comments on social media people found clear favourites in the line up. I can’t go into every band as there were quite a lot but I can say they all did a great set.

The Hardr:ve arena continued聽filling up throughout the day and as the night went on it went from chilling on the grass to a hardcore rave. 聽Even for someone like myself that wouldn’t particularly chose to listen to that kind of music it just didn’t really matter because the vibes alone and the hype was just phenomenal and people were pretty friendly chatting to people they didn’t know making new friends and having a dance. There for the music! The fire dancers in聽particular were a great touch to the stage and atmosphere and the guy in the crowd with the idea to bring flares “Brilliant”. That gave people some great photos.

Non of us took many photos really but this is only a good sign, we really didn’t have time. We went to enjoy ourselves and that’s what we did.

People are already asking when the next installment of Party In The Pines will be. After this success it just keeps getting bigger.

Over the next couple of days you will see a survey emerge from Scunthorpe Nights. We have been requested by the Organisers at Party In The Pines that we do a detailed survey so results can be analysed and recorded for future events. Find out any high points/low points, what you would like to see at the next one, any suggestions you may have, what you enjoyed most. So please keep an eye out and give the team some feedback.

Keep sending in your photos it’s great to see them all taking over the Facebook and twitter feeds. Send us your photos to and we will use them on our article.

On behalf of the Pines team we would like to thank each and everyone of the people involved in making the event. A lot of hard work went into it and also to thank you the people for coming and supporting the event. And if you enjoyed it then I guess we will #seeyouinthetrees again.


Here are some tweets:

My sister took just under 5 hours to walk home from party in the pines in the rain with a short stop at McDonald’s,

Party in the pines was crazy! Such a good night!


Saturday 9th August 2014 the biggest local festival聽kicks off it’s second event of the summer season. Situated between Broughton & Appleby.

How Much is it and where can I get a ticket ? 拢20 & tickets are still available from Celebrate Partyshop Robert Street or SEE TICKETS ONLINE

(Fee’s Apply to Online Booking)

Can I pay on the gate? Yes for 拢30. Gate tickets will be limited availability, so get there early or better still save yourself 拢10 and get one from Celebrate Partyshop beforehand.

When can I camp?聽10am Saturday to Anytime Sunday

I haven’t聽received聽my online ticket purchase yet? Don’t worry just make sure you keep your booking information.Tickets are sent out a couple of days before the event. In the unlikely event you do not receive yours, Message the Party In The Pines Facebook page and bring your ticket reservation number on the day.

Can I bring my own beer or do I have to buy it from the bar? Pines operated on a bring your own drink聽policy, where as other small festivals strongly state you must not bring your own food or drink onto site but Party In The Pines aren’t here to rip you off at 拢5 a pint. Instead for 拢5 at the bar there is usually a x3 can deal all nice and cold. So you decide bring your own or buy at the bar or both.

Can I bring glass bottles on site?聽Nope, One they are more dangerous so being health &聽safety conscious. Also harder to get rid of. Where as cans are much easier to recycle and plastic bottles. So bringing a spirit onto the site? Then please tip it into a plastic bottle at home.

(Please use bins provided to discard of your rubbish)

What time does it start and end? Bands and DJ’s will be performing in the main arena from 12pm to 12am

Why does it finish at 12am? Due to noise restrictions which effect local villages.

Why can’t I bring a caravan? Space is the answer to this, if there were too many caravans the site would fill quickly & there are no hook ups. Camper vans are permitted.

Can we have a BBQ or Fire? Due to fire risks these will not be permitted. Food vans will be on site for your catering needs or feel free to bring a picnic. There should be a BBQ area set up in the main arena for safe cooking. (Please note they say no fires because it is a woodland and very dry grass if someone were to have an accident it could spread.)

What聽facilities聽are there?聽A brand new girls toilet block has been built by the Pines team for this event. There will be no shower facilities but there is running water on site. (So if you’re desperate get a cup and throw it on yourself)

How can I get there? The easiest and cheapest option is to drive, park and camp. But Taxi firms are aware of The Party In The Pines location from previous event pick up and drop offs. Ocean Taxis & Ashby Cars usually offer pre booked discounts. The site is closer to Appleby end of Ermine Street rather than Broughton end. This means you can get a bus to Broughton but it is quite a trek. Buses to Appleby do not run on this date (We checked for you).

What happens if I am caught without my wristband on site?聽You will be taken to the organisers and asked to pay the gate price of 拢30 or to leave. Please wear your wrist band at all times.

The event is open to over 18’s only due to licensing.

Official Site Rules


Party In The Pines is situated in a private woodland clearing. Whilst driving past Broughton onto Appleby you will see the sign posted entrance to enter the parking & camping site. Once you have parked and pitched you can make your way to the main arena.

As you walk through the woodland area you will then come to the clearing the Hardr:ve stage will be situated here and across the other side of the clearing is the Main band stage and main DJ stage. VIEW THE LINE UP HERE

Stay safe, Have fun & be nice.

Please drink responsibly we don’t want it to ruin yours or anyone elses fun.
