Following the disappointment of the cancelled gig at the Ironworks, it is great to hear that they have also announced that the Fratellis frontman Jon Fratelli will be at the festival, bringing him with him a full band, including two drummers. Expect versions of the classics and some new material.

Added to the party will be the recently reformed ” homegrown heroes” The Bluebells, expect Young at Heart to be echoing around the place!!

The final act announced, a necessity more than an option is the one band Loopallu wouldn’t be Loopallu without…. Kicking off proceedings, The Ullapool Pipe Band.

A lifelong passion for music matched with a geeky fascination for social media and websites resulted in the creation of Inverness Gigs back in 2010. The aim of the site is to help promote, support and generally raise awareness of the local music scene.In fairness fifteen years of being a psychiatric nurse never prepared me for the experiences that we have had over the last few years and the evolution of Inverness Gigs has certainly been a steep learning curve.I currently write (less and less), edit and co-ordinate most of the Inverness Gigs activities.Occasionally seen on Twitter, and  LinkedIn, if you want get in touch you can contact me via our Facebook page.
