This event has been and gone.
On paper they said it wouldn’t work, a festival in late September in a remote village on the West Coast of Scotland 60 miles from the nearest town, but that was eleven years ago. 2019 sees this friendly, small (but perfectly formed) festival return to the pier in the centre of Ullapool.

Hunter & The Bear
Hunter & The Bear, a band described by The Huffington Post as 'the heroes British rock needs right now', released their debut album in 2017 which entered the iTunes Rock Chart at number 5. They then signed with X-ray Touring and undertook two sell-out UK tours, including a headline date at The Garage in London. They had their most exciting year to date in 2018 with impressive slots at major Scottish festivals TRNSMT and Belladrum as well as bagging their first ever festival headline in the Hebrides. You can expect lots from Hunter & The Bear. They expect it from themselves!

Scottish alt-rockers led by Roddy Woomble. Passionate rock'n'roll, brimming with restrained aggression, they reached their biggest level of success with singles 'You Held The World In Your Arms' (a UK no.9 hit) and 'American English'. While on a hiatus, frontman Roddy Woomble released several solo albums, while guitarist Rod Jones released material under his own name in addition to forming the band The Birthday Suit. In 2014, the boys reunited, completing a sold out acoustic tour of unique, intimate venues throughout the Highlands & Islands of Scotland, re-introducing themselves to live audiences after a half-decade break. Their 8th studio album followed in 2015, while 9th album 'Interview Music' was released in 2019.

GUN’s contemporary take on authentic rock gives them an edge over their peers. Formed in Glasgow by brothers Dante and Jools Gizzi, they came to re-invent the rock ‘n’ roll genre, and were recognised with numerous plaudits and awards, including the first ever MTV Europe Music Award for Best Cover. Hit albums and singles, break-ups, line-up changes… GUN have done them all and more, and at each turn have come back stronger and better than before.
