Expect also a cinema tent, walkabout art trail, spoken word, and lots of workshops suitable for the whole family. The festival aims to be a fun, frolicsome weekend for kids and adults alike - there will be a great mixture of music, stand up comedy, DJs, children's theatre, art workshops, lectures, poetry, craft stalls, local ale, cider, organic food and much more in a relaxed, festive atmosphere.
The festival has also introduced a barter scheme for useful items, in exchange for festival tickets. Organisers need a caravan, tents, yurts, generators, lights, furniture and decorations. The festival website now includes a 'Barter' page, allowing anyone to either trade or lend something in return for tickets.
This year the festival has teamed up with organisers from Kelburn Garden Parties to offer a bus service picking up from Edinburgh, Glasgow and Stirling. The buses are timed to meet trains into Stirling railway station to help people coming into the area by train reach the festival site. E-tickets are available in advance or can be bought from the driver.
There are two bus services, morning and evening on Friday 21 August to the festival site from pick up points in Edinburgh, Stirling and Glasgow. On Sunday there are two evening services from the site back to the pick up points and there is a morning bus service from the site on Monday.
There will also be a special “crew bus” for festival volunteers heading to the site on Thursday 20th August.
More information will be here when available.
