This looks like a fantastic day out!
Culty Quake to Shake Comrie
Comrie the pretty Perthshire village known for being on a faultline is to hold its own homegrown Music Festival on Saturday 29th May at the community owned Cultybraggan Camp in Comrie. Known as Culty Quake, the festival will be in two parts running alongside each other. The free community open day from 12pm to 5pm will have all kinds of attractions including sports events, a craft fair, skateboard and parkour workshops, drama productions and strolling players, exhibitions and talks. It’s a great opportunity to see round the camp, where Hess was held during the war, in its spectacular scenic setting. It will have a strong green ethos which ties in with the greening of Comrie under the Scottish Government’s Carbon Challenge scheme.
The Music Festival will run from 2pm to midnight and is primarily to offer a great day out to locals and visitors alike and to celebrate the village’s community buyout of the 92 acres of ex-army camp which is Cultybraggan.
The line up features a mixture of local, national and international acts: Bizzfitch, a homegrown band specially commissioned from Comrie’s precociously talented youth; Sorren MacLean, the young up and coming indie rocker from Mull; Day of Days, full-on Crieff Rockers; the Bulletholes, Comrie’s own hugely popular Johnny Cash-esque band; the Dangleberries drum and guitar and bagpipe rockers from Dumfries and Galloway; Black Umfolosi 5 the high energy acappella singing and dancing group from Zimbabwe, and finally the fabulous The Treacherous Orchestra.who will take the stage to close what is promising to be a stupendous day.
More information and tickets (£35) available from www.comriefoundation.org Please note, there’s no parking at the camp on the day. Park in the village and take the vintage routmaster specially provided. Camping is available at www.comriecroft.com
