Spreading the love this summer is MugStock: Glasgow’s not- for profit festival. Situated (north of the city) in Mugdock Country Park; the boutique gig offers camping, music, and arts over August 7- 9.
Although in its debut year, the festival already expects 2,000 revellers.
MugStock Co-organiser, Kat Borrowdale said: “MugStock is something truly unique – a small festival that is close to Glasgow, but feels like a different world.
“The festival will have extraordinary occurrences including: a kazoo conga-line, pop-up fortune tellers and circus acts. All this will be accompanied by local and internationally -acclaimed music.”
MugStock’s musical highlights include its headliners Beats Antique who will play the Erne Parkin Stage, as well as the alternative artist Dodgy, who will be taking the Yellow Movement Tent.
Borrowdale added: “We’ve got music you can dance to from Colonel Mustard & the Dijon 5; as well as sunny nostalgia from Samba Ya Bamba, delicate songwriting from Siobhan Wilson and female rock from The Amorettes.”
As well as this there will be chilled music at the Jolly Lovely Stage, a family area, camping, and art installations throughout the venue; in association with A for Audi.
As well as wall art guests can enjoy a sculpture trail, poetry, cabaret, pop-up theatre, zombie science, storytelling and even Shakespeare!
Borrowdale said: “We aim to give MugStockers plenty of excellent stories to relate, as well as music to enjoy.”
This sentiment is extended to junior MugStockers, as the family area includes activities like: science workshops, Capoeira, crafts and a Mini Muddy Disco.
After dancing festival goers can refresh with food from on-site cafes, such as Chipstix, and craft beverages from the likes of Thistly Cross.
Borrowdale concluded: “The festival will be an incredible experience. Guests will want to tell the story of their time at the very first MugStock.”
