Following a busy couple of weeks of artist announcements, the ButeFest 2016 line-up is starting to take shape.

Double platinum festival favourites, The Magic Numbers, are the latest addition to the line-up joining the likes of Skerryvore, The Scott Wood Band, Tom McRae, Heron Valley, Talisk, The Youth and Young and The Rezillos, performing at the three-day festival from July 29-31 at King George’s Field, Rothesay.

Along with ‘Tier 2’ tickets going on sale this week (offering a saving up to 25 per cent versus the price of a standard full-weekend ticket) the organisers have this year introduced a limited number of day tickets for 2016.

So, even if life gets in the way of you enjoying the full festival experience, you’ll still be able to take in some of the fantastic bands performing across the weekend without bursting the bank.

While the organisers are not able to announce at this stage which day every single act will be performing on, they can confirm the following:

Friday - Skerryvore and The Baghdaddies; Saturday - The Magic Numbers, and The Youth and Young; Sunday - The Rezillos, and Colonel Mustard and The Dijon 5.

As with the festival’s debut, the 2016 follow-up promises to be packed with loads of activities and entertainment for 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, much more still to be announced!

ButeFest 2016 is set to be great weekend out for the whole family with ‘under 11s’ going free, and the return of the incredibly popular ButeFest family ticket deal.

Tickets can be purchased online at or locally (saving the price of booking fee) from The Musicker, The Dressing Rooms and Cannon House Hotel.
