Talk about pulling together. Henry Ryder has pulled out some serious after hours stops on the website and artwork, Captain Bob and Miranda have come up for a fortnight to build and paint things, Ronnie Dunn lent us the ingredients for an outdoor kitchen, The Mountain Cafe in Aviemore lent us barbeques and tables, Jack and Hammie rocked up to help put up the bar, Zander at 123send has provided wireless credit card facilities which I couldn't recommend highly enough, the Balvenie distillery have given us whisky barrels to use as fire butts and the Suie Hotel in Kincraig (about 4 miles away, shown above) have lent us a tent and offered 10% off their already very reasonable £35 a night rate for anyone who doesn't fancy camping.
Then there is the PR. STV have made the big claim that we might be the best festival of the year, the Strathy wrote this about us and even from across the pond the esteemed Liberty London Girl has been blogging away on our behalf. Virtual festivals and Efestivals have got a hold of us.
You can see our full line up (still subject to change) courtesy of Peenko's excellent Scottish music blog.
We have a major Christmas card list this year.
