MugStock runs August 7th, 8th and 9th in Mugdock Country Park on the outskirts of Glasgow.
“There’s been a big spike in ticket sales over the weekend, with 25% of festival goers booking in the last seven days.” says Festival Director Alan Govan. “We’re confident the first ever MugStock festival will be a resounding success.”
Tickets are still available for the festival, which has a maximum capacity of 2,000.
MugStock is a grassroots, non-profit, volunteer-led organisation. The event is supported by Stirling Council, Awards for All and EventScotland, a team within VisitScotland’s Events Directorate.
The festival offers an eclectic line-up of great acts from established international bands and unaccustomed raw talent to local legends. MugStock will be headlined by Californian experimental world fusion group Beats Antique, making their very first Scottish appearance.
The programme also features UK festival favourites Dodgy, heavy rock trio The Amorettes, solo guitar wizard Preston Reed, hi-octane fusion outfit Orkestra del Sol, folk sensation Siobhan Wilson and many more. There are also theatre, circus and children’s activities such as woodland walks, pond-dipping and crafts. Children aged 12 and under can get in for free!
MugStock is on Glasgow’s doorstep with bus transport on offer, but its country park location offers a relaxed rural vibe. Full details on performers and tickets are available from mugstock.org
