This was the first winter festival and the first British festival that I attended. I can say I had a great fun with my friends. The music was good, but I think I've enjoyed more the second day of the festival. The venue was lovely, the food available was tasty, mostly the pizza - that was amazing, the bar had acceptable prices. I heard people saying that it was cheaper in comparison with other festivals which is great. I think the toilets cleanness can be improved, though. At the beginning of the evenings, they were clean, but after few hours, there was no toilet paper left and they were unclean and I can say that the ques were quite long. The atmosphere was great and I and my friends, that are accustomed with festivals, had a great time together. What I would suggest would be to offer the possibility of refunding for the skiing pass because some of us had it. The weather wasn't favorable for this as it was really warm and sunny and I don't think they will be able to get to use them other time.

I was at the festival as part of a hen party of around 30 of us. We all enjoyed the music but were really disappointed that we had such a long walk at the end of the night in the wind and rain. There were no taxi's available. We were all staying at the Macdonald resort at the far end of the town. I would think it would be pretty easy for the coaches to travel the length of the town and do a few drop offs along the way?

I enjoyed my weekend at groove Cairngorm. The shuttle buses were fantastic. The Cuban brothers were the best. I was disappointed with small choice of whisky at music venue only one kind available. I had to buy a bottle of water to mix with my whisky which was fine but I was not allowed the bottle top, this made dancing hard as both hands were in use. Every thing else was good and a great weekend

Great venue. Had an awesome weekend. Would prefer music at main venue to start later and finish later. It takes time to get off the hill stow gear and grab a munch.

Banging weekend, friendly people, well organised. My only gripe for the whole weekend is. Where was the snowboard championship? Didn't see anything about it the whole weekend

Perfect festival at Groove Cairngorm! What an amazing way to celebrate my birthday weekend plus my boyfriend proposed to me up the mountain! The atmosphere was fantastic, it was very well organised. The buses to and from the mountain and the music venue were great. The music was brilliant and the venue was great as well. There wasn't long queues either for bar or getting wristbands so that was also a bonus. I would definitely recommend and we will be back next year!

As a local I really like it when events like this are announced as its not very often they come along in a place like Aviemore. I definitely enjoyed myself and thought the badaguish outdoor centre worked out really well for hosting the first winter Groove. That 5 a side roof was perfect, which for me gave it that warehouse rave feel🙂. I'm not sure how good your numbers were but it seemed a very good size of crowd with little or no queues. Sometimes that can reflect on the choice of lineup I suppose but I found it was mixed enough for everyone's taste in genres which is what matters. It was also really friendly and I didn't once see any trouble.
The day time side of things up on cairngorm wasn't that busy but it could have been very different if the weather was like it was on Thursday but nobody can predict that. Still though I had a good time in the bottom bar with some friends who were also on the lineup there. All in all it was a decent effort for its first time and really hope it comes back for a second time in 2017. Thanks!
