Scottish alternative rock band, Idlewild, are set to headline the Sunday night of ButeFest 2016 organisers announced last night (February 25).

The Edinburgh-based outfit are the latest act to be added to the bill, which already boasts the likes of The Magic Numbers, Skerryvore, The Scott Wood Band, Tom McRae, Colonel Mustard & The Dijon 5, Heron Valley, Talisk, The Youth and Young, and The Rezillos among many others.

The second ever ButeFest will take place on the weekend of July 29-31 at King George’s Field, Rothesay, and festivalgoers will be able to take in some of the fantastic bands performing across the weekend without breaking the bank by taking advantage of a limited number of day tickets.

You can also save up to 25 per cent off a standard weekend ticket by purchasing a ‘Tier 2’ ticket - available as of this week.

The family ticket deal will ensure the whole family gets to enjoy the festival, and with under 11s going free, what’s not to like?

As with the inaugural festival, the 2016 follow-up promises to be packed with loads of activities and entertainment for the younger ButeFest’ers to enjoy too. Family entertainment confirmed so far includes Professor Pumpernickel, Fellowship of the Thistle, Ian Douglas Storyteller and Gary (Gacko) Bridgens, with much more still to be announced!

Tickets can be purchased online at ButeFest’s website, or locally (saving the price of booking fee) from The Musicker and The Dressing Room. For more information about the festival and the line-up so far visit the website.
