Award-nominated boutique festival Gig in the Goil has announced their Showcase Stage for their fifth birthday, with Luke La Volpe, Mark Sharp and the Bicycle Thieves and Vanives leading the way.
The indoor event – which returns to the stunning lochside village of Lochgoilhead from 1st – 3rd May, is well known for its promotion of upcoming artists from across Scotland, with the likes of Lewis Capaldi, Gerry Cinnamon, The Snuts & Be Charlotte gracing their stage over recent years, and this year’s milestone event promises to be even more special.
“We are delighted to secure such a strong line-up” said Event Manager Ross Coutts. “Luke & Mark are tipped for huge things at the moment with sell-out shows and festival appearances across Scotland, so we’re delighted to welcome them back to GITG as headliners, while Vanives are one of the most exciting upcoming acts in the country and we can’t wait for them to make their Lochgoilhead debut”.
The stage showcases the hottest unsigned artists breaking through in the music scene, with Swim School, Luna the Professor, Wrest, Fabric Bear, Liimo & Anna Sweeney some of the other acts set to make the journey West in May. The latest artists – who also include Rebekah Kirk, Gary Ovens, Black Dog Days, Megan Black & The Roov making their Lochgoilhead return – join a host of bands already confirmed, including Main Stage headliners Peat & Diesel, Trail West, Heron Valley & Face the West.
Onsite accommodation is already full, and organisers are predicting another sell-out event for the fifth consecutive year.
Adult weekend tickets are available from just £40 (with youths from £15 and children just £5) on Skiddle or TicketWeb.
