Sumfest was ranked at number 9 on a list of 36 Global Festival to attend in 2017. The list, which was compiled from events from around the world offering patrons the best of music, food and culture, includes events such as Erlanger Bergkirchweih in Germany, the Cork Harbour Festival in Ireland, and the Hinterland Music Festival in the United States.
The recommendation of Sumfest was based on three main categories: its notable following internationally; its offering of “unforgettable music”; and that the festival offers patrons “more opportunities to make history”.
“The team has worked tirelessly to ensure that the 25th anniversary delivers an incredible experience for patrons and I believe that this honour is evidence that our hard work has paid off,” Bogdanovich said in relation to the ranking given by flight Network
The event which will be celebrating its 25th-year anniversary is scheduled to run from July 16 to 22. Sumfest kicks off on Sunday, July 16, with a beach party, and moves into the Sumfest Sunset Yacht Party on Monday, July 17, before the live shows on July 21 and 22.
