Peatbog Faeries, Skerryvore, Merry Hell & more for Butefest Posted on Mon 11th May 2015

The most accessible and affordable Island Festival of the Summer

Peatbog Faeries, Skerryvore & Merry Hell are among the latest acts confirmed for Butefest, taking place at The Meadows, Rothesay, Isle of Bute, Scotland from 17th –19th July 2015.

Also confirmed for the line-up are Treacherous Orchestra, The John Langan Band, Woodenbox, We Banjo 3, Stanley Odd, Federation Of The Disco Pimp, Beth Swan, Sinderins, Fast Camels, Good Foxy, Hannah Jackson, The King Lot, The Lonely Together, Sonny And The Lost Soul Train, Trongate Rum Riots and more!

Rightly proclaimed as one of Scotland’s most beautiful islands (the clue’s in the name), the Isle of Bute will play host to ButeFest, a brand-new three-day festival of music, food and fun. This accessible and hugely friendly family festival takes places a mere thirty-five miles as the crow flies from Glasgow. Butefest has endeavoured to compile a richly varied and superb line-up that includes both the contemporary and the classic of the music world and runs that gamut from rock to roots and folk to dance.

Of course, as well as the main stage attractions, ButeFest will have a great variety of foods for you to try. To celebrate Scotland’s Year of Food and Drink 2015 they have some of the best local producers alongside some new exotic flavours to titivate your taste buds. The bars will be stocked with some of Scotland’s best Craft Beers and Ciders picked from the top Microbreweries around and if lager is your tipple westillof course have loads of that and all at prices you’d expect to pay in your local pub.

For the families with kids there will be a family fun tent with lots to do, and scheduled entertainment for all our little ButeFesters to enjoy.

Performers confirmed so far: Gary Bridgens, Professor Pumpernickel & Ian Douglas.

There will be loads of interactive entertainment throughout the site, including mobile rickshaw/cart storytelling, a treasure hunt, puppetry and even a bedtime storytelling session and parade...with even more to be announced in the lead-up to the festival.

It’s not just about the music, so keep an eye out for a host of other pop up activities and curious, even eccentric, walkabout entertainers displaying their talents around the site for your amusement and entertainment.

Adult weekend tickets are a mere £65.00, Youth tickets (12-16) £55.00 and child’s tickets are £30.00. Weekend camping is included in the ticket price.
