Social media had been abuzz as the mysterious cassette tapes landed on desks, doormats and around some of the most prolific clubs and bars in Scotland, where curious punters were encouraged to listen to the tapes before taking to social media to share their thoughts on who the bands were.
A two-day camping festival, Brew at the Bog showcases the very best home-grown Scottish musical talent, as well as the country?s best craft drinks and food. It?s held at Bogbain Farm in Inverness, which was crowned "Best Unusual Venue" at the 2012 Scottish Event Awards - the perfect setting for a festival that prides itself on championing the best of Scotland?s alternative scene.
The festival has grown rapidly since its inception in 2012 ? expanding from a capacity of 500 to 3,500 in 2016.† With JR Green, Colonel Mustard & the Dijon 5, Springbreak and Blazin? Fiddles joining C Duncan, White and the Van T?s, 2016?s bill is set to be one of the most varied the festival has seen. †
As well as the music, there will be a dedicated craft beer bar offering the best selections from across Scotland.† Add to that a wide choice of Scotland?s finest gins, cider from award-winning Thistly Cross and a fizzy treat in the form of a prosecco bar, the drinks line-up matches the music bill in terms of quality and choice.
Brew at the Bog?s festival organiser, Yvonne Murray, said: ?Brew at the Bog prides itself on doing things a little bit differently and that includes straying away from boring ways to unveil our line-up.† We decided to tap into the nostalgia of getting a really great tape full of bands you might not necessarily know and dot these around the country to get everyone talking about what they were listening to.† The festival celebrates the very best in up-and-coming music acts, all who dare to be different and we?re thrilled to see such a positive reaction already.† We?ve also moved away from our usual May date, because it was always freezing, so we?re hoping to see you in the sunshine in June.?
The current line-up: †C Duncan, White, KLOň, JR Green, Springbreak, The Little Kicks, Pinact, HQFU, The Van T?s, Dead Boy Robotics, The Elephant Sessions, Blazin?
