Thats the festival season over for another year for me. I was quite late in getting to festivals, mainly because I was normally more interested in going on holiday around the summer months and so missed out on them. Over the last few years I’ve been lucky enough to be able to visit some of Scotland’s best offerings as part of my job in music.
I’ve came to know Belladrum quite well – The Tartan Heart Festival in the glorious highlands of Scotland. A nice family vibe with plenty to see and do, a real feast for the senses all around with some great bands through the years. We’ve also been lucky enough to be able to give some live opportunities to some of the young artists we work with on the music project.
We’ve also become regular visitors to The Great Escape in Brighton, another wonderful festival that is actually overwhelming with the amount of talent and bands on offer everyday, I’ve saw some incredible bands and music industry panels at this festival. An absolute gem.
This year I managed to secure some tickets to take the family (Joan, Amélie, Leo, Nina and Myself) to Electric Fields in Drumlanrig Castle Estate down in Dumfries. This felt like a much smaller affair but with some excellent acts and a real cool family vibe and we met some absolutely lovely folks there enjoying the festivities. I hope to go back next year.
