food and great entertainment with an intimate, community atmosphere.

thrilled to be putting on a lineup crammed full of some of the best music from

Scotland and around the world. I’m truly excited for the festival and in all honesty

hope the months fly by until we can all be standing on our beautiful site watching

these incredible artists together. It’s going to be a hell of a weekend!”
