At the beginning of the day there were too many groups playing at the same time too near to each other.
This was disappointing as it led to tiny audiences for each act- all of whom deserved better.
This could have been offset by not having such long gaps between the later sessions, by which time there were more people.
Drink prices were reasonable and choice and variety of food was good.
Overall though a great day was had by all.

Butefest is exceptional - a warm family festival, lots for children to do , good grub (recommend the sausage and chips stall), interesting selection of local brews in the ale tent and a stellar host of artists, the best from Scotland and overseas playing inspiring songs for three solid days. Genres represented: rock, folk, pop and indefinable. Easy to get to - half an hour on the train from Glasgow or 45 minutes drive. You can camp at Ettrick or stay near Rothesay and catch the Butefest shuttle. Four stages - 2 tented and 2 outside. The volunteers and staff on duty are unfailingly hospitable and helpful. Heavenly music in a heavenly location. Go, you won't regret.
