Information about the Feugh Fest Music Festival held in Banchory
In 2007 a new musical festival was introduced into Aberdeenshire by director Mark Valentine who wanted to recreate a community spirit similar to Glassel Gig. This Banchory gig ran for 7 years and he hopes his Feugh Fest
will become a traditional music festival. His fellow director is Michael Aitkin. They also hope the the open air music festival in Banchory will be a family event and during the day children under 14 will gain free admission. After 6pm the kids are to leave the Feugh Fest and the music and entertainment provided will be a chance for the adults to enjoy themselves.
