NEWS: Mugstock acts revealed
Mugdock Country Park will once again be hosting Mugstock Festival for it’s fourth year in a row. During the last weekend of July (27-30th) an exciting and eclectic mix of over 100 artists will entertain festival goers of all tastes.
Over 150 acts have been announced and will grace Mugstock’s 7 stages this summer. Colonel Mustard & The Dijon 5 and The Girobabies are among acts returning to the stage adding to the diverse but popular crowd pleasing line-up.
We are excited to announce a third wave of acts including Kid Canaveral, Roddy Woomble and Trongate Rum Riots who will be joining the likes of Glamour & The Baybes, Busker Rhymes and 100 Fables. With an array of genres including indie, folk, reggae, pop, dub and soul there will definitely something for everyone to revel in.
During the live music, festival goers can enjoy a variety of entertainment in the form of theatre, art, comedy, performance, crafts and food & drink.
This intimate festival is only 8 miles from Glasgow and is set in a charming, natural location. With an array of natural and built heritage onsite, patrons can take a break from the music and enjoy other parts of Mugdock Country Park.
What makes MugStock so remarkable is the fact that it is run by a team of enthusiastic volunteers, on a not-for-profit basis. The festival receives support from funders allowing the organisers to keep ticket prices fair. Mugstock’s volunteers say they are motivated by the ‘sheer love of bringing lovely people together to have a great time in a beautiful place’.
‘We pride ourselves on being as inclusive, accessible and family friendly as possible’ said programming director Nelson. ‘Whether you have never been to a festival before or are a seasoned festival goer you will feel right at home at Mugstock’.
Colonel John Thomas McMustard from headliners Colonel Mustard & The Dijon 5 has said ‘It’s great to be back at MugStock! We played the first two and we and The 6th Dijon loved them! It’s great to see such a unique boutique festival growing. We missed last years, so we’re really happy to get back this year. There’s lots of cool things happening for families throughout the site as well as all the great bands playing. We know the organisers put a lot of love and attention to detail into it. We’re headlining the Friday night which is an amazing slot to have. We will get the party going and guarantee fun, laughter , banging tunes and lots of dancing! Peace, love and Mustard.’
