Doune the Rabbit Hole is a small-scale music and art festival that aims to offer a friendlier alternative to larger events by creating a fantastically unique atmosphere and offering visitors the chance to take part in a variety of activities and workshops that will appeal to the whole family.
Early bird weekend tickets are priced at £62, a child (aged 13-16 years) ticket is priced at £35, a live in vehicle pass is priced at £25 for the weekend of £10 for the day, a weekend car parking ticket is £15, and £5 a day.
Organisers say, "With Rock Ness, The Insider and The Big Tent Festivals all being cancelled; Doune The Rabbit Hole offers a chance to relax, have fun and discover some amazing new music.
"Many of the artists will be hosting workshops or master-classes at the event with the focus of the festival angled towards getting people involved. It’s not all music: pottery, knitting, crocheting and a variety of other workshops will be on offer."
More acts are still to be announced.
The Spoken Word tent will host poetry, stand-up and storytelling and the Cinema which will show a range of films from family friendly flicks through to life-changing documentaries and even a late-night horror session.
