Brew At The Bog
In my opinion one of the best things that came from the demise of DFs Connect Festival, would be the number of small boutique festivals that have sprung up to fill the void. Festivals like the Insider, Big Tent and I guess Home/Away Game offer something quite different to the norm, where you see the same old faces cropping up on cyclical periods. Yes, I am bitter towards Connect, as I still hold it responsible for the loss of Indian Summer, a boutique festival that ran for a couple of years in Victoria Park in Glasgow. Anyway, enough of me and my gripes, the point of this was to try and introduce you to a new festival which is going to be taking place on Saturday 5 May at Bogbain Farm on the outskirts of Inverness.
Boasting a line up which includes some of the most exciting up and coming acts that Scotland has to offer. To date they've announced the likes of Washington Irving, Endor, The Seventeenth Century, Over The Wall, Beerjacket, Three Blind Wolves and Kitty The Lion, Open Swimmer, Fatherson, Mike Nisbet, The Little Kicks, Lost City Soul and young Highland singer-songwriter Megan Blyth to this year’s line up.
“We are delighted with the additions to this year’s line up”, said Festival Director, Yvonne Murray. “Brew at the Bog is a great opportunity to catch some of the best new bands in the country in a unique environment, and we are working hard to make sure it’s one of the coolest festivals on this year’s calendar”.
Tickets for the one day event are priced at just £45 and are available here. There are also a limited number of camping tickets available at £10 a pop which gets you in from Friday until Sunday.
If that sounds like your cup of tea or you just want to find out more then just head on over to the Brew At The Bog Homepage (designed by none other than our very clever little pumpkin, Vicki from Randolph's Leap).
