    You're gonna have hip hop, metal bands, a pipe band, hardcore trance, jazz musicians, ceilidh bands, indie bands and a big band on the same stage over the course of a weekend? I'd like to see that!

    Try the St. Magnus Festival on Orkney. It caters for most tastes, including poetry and proses!

    Ok in case any of you missed the point...Ullapool..very succesful indeed and started from scratch in a very small community. A 2 day event is possible and does not involve rocket science. If you build it they will come Of course local "musos", a minority group if ever there was one, will sneer and throw buckets of cynicsm at the concept ( as can be seen by gthe pathetic nonssne largely posted above ) and indeed any event held....but thats to be expected...the masses will turn out they always do. Ah but I here myself say, where do we hold it..Wick..nah Thursonians wont come...Thurso....hell Wickers wont go.....get a life !!!!

    Sorry you are in a minority here : the guys mentioned are well in there late 50's / early 60's, a core audience of 14 - 25 werent even born when these guys had their moment...

    Well done for even having the idea, dont let a bunch of self opiniated, cynics ( is cyniscm in the water supply up there ? ) dampen you. As I have said ( and correctly if I may congratulate myself ) Ullapool is a shining example of what can be done.....I also notice that the cynics know this damn well fine, which is why no one came after me on this thread.

    You know what, this nonsense has so hacked me off that I am going to publically pledge that there will be a music festival ( of some kind ) next year...anyone fancy getting involved !!!!

    Great stuff will do. Glad to hear from an optimist, a rare sight on these pages !! Good job that there are a few optimists about willing to challenge prevailing wisdom.....otherwise we would all be still living in caves. Heres a thought, when Marconi ( invented wireless communciations ) first pitched his idea to investors etc he said that he had a broadcasting system which consisted of a broadcast device and a reciever device capable of transmitting voices from one point to another, when the investors asked what lay between the devices he replied nothing ( hence wireless ) accordingly ( and true story ) they thought him insane.....So is it insane to think through the logistics / budgets required to deliver a festival....I think not...mind you the bill might not be upto what the cynics require....however as they are in a very small minority ( no more than 10 I would think ) then we have a total 2 county population of 39,990 to target ( not counting visitors from out with the area ) lol lol lol ....the madcap laugh !!!!!!

    Oh forgot to mention, there is also the Wizard festival in New Deer, near Peterhead this year.. usually attended by c3000

    Headliners include Supergrass and more. ( do any of you cynics recognise the name Supergrass ??? )
