Liftshare continues its look at the UK festival scene with a glimpse of MugStock, a three-day crowd funded event in Mugdock Country Park, which is just north of Glasgow.
Running August 7-9, MugStock’s organisers have dubbed the inaugural event a ’boutique new festival of music, performance, food, drink and extraordinary occurrences.’ Better yet, it’s a not-for-profit event that is organised by an ace team of skilled and dedicated volunteers who are all in it for the love of music. The team hit its £5,000 crowd-funding goal on April 2 with 33 hours of funding left to go.
We’re instantly intrigued!
The festival’s surroundings in Mugdock Country park are lush and green, trading big music stages for old gazebos and open air areas that put you in the heart of nature. There’s the walled garden main stage, a stage sponsored by the Yellow Movement – a group of artists and musicians who celebrate the colour yellow – and plenty more.
MugStock’s musical offering is diverse, and the line-up features the likes of Preston Reed, Orkestra del Sol, Siobhan Wilson, Dave Arcari, The Amorettes and Mr Boom.
Music aside, revellers can chill in the Caulders Garden House Restaurant with a three-course meal, or a simple snack and coffee, while bars by the Walled Garden and Yellow Movement Stage service up ice-cold Williams Brothers cask ale to the masses.
Both family-friendly and charitable by nature, we’ll be keeping an eye on how MugStock 2015 developers in the run-up to August.
