Local community organisation The TIree Windfall Fund have also sponsored a new tent and stage that will host a series of performers and music workshops throughout the weekend which includes a piping workshop from Red Hot Chilli Pipers founder Stuart Cassells who himself has family connections to the island, "TMF is a unique music festival experience on an island blessed with beautiful beaches and stunning scenery. This mixed in with a great line up of live music and activities guarantees a special festival atmosphere for all. Live a little and love Tiree!"
Festival Director Daniel Gillespie is delighted with the third successive sell-out, "3 years ago we only dreamed of having 1000+ people on Tiree for a festival so we are all absolutely delighted at the response to TMF 2012. We have people travelling to Tiree from all over the world this year which is testament to how the vibe of the festival has spread far out with the shores of Tiree. The demand for tickets has been incredible and had there been more ferries or routes to Tiree available we feel it could have probably been an even bigger capacity!"
