BEWARE OF FAKE TICKETS
Final preparations for this year’s Loopallu are well underway to mark the end of this years festival season. The tiny West Coast fishing village of Ullapool is gearing up to receive its annual influx of music fans making the long journey North.
Organisers would like to take this opportunity to remind people without tickets no to travel in the hope of getting tickets on the door. The festival is completely sold out and there will be no more tickets released whatsoever.
Sadly it has also come to the festival’s attention that there are currently a number of scams involving the sale of much sought after tickets for this year’s event. The festival do not endorse any third party ticket sellers, and those buying from them do so at their own risk.
Paolo Nutini and The Magic Numbers are set to headline the Friday and Saturday nights respectively. Other acts appearing over the weekend include Scottish indie heroes Idlewild; Turin Brakes make their first ever Highland Festival appearance; alternative pop from Aberfeldy; Mt Desolation featuring Tim Rice-Oxley and Jesse Quin (who are better known in their roles with Keane); Scotland’s hottest new band Kassidy; BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards ‘Best Live Act’ (2010) nominee Adrian Edmondson and the Bad Shepherds; local favourites The Vatersay Boys; rising traditional music stars Skerryvore; singer-songwriter Rachel Sermanni; recent Atlantic Records signing 18 year old Carly Connor; the new project from Johnny ‘Pictish Trail’ Lynch and Adem Ilhan (Fridge), Silver Columns; Inverness’ finest James Mackenzie and the Aquascene; and Ullapool act Copperdrift.
