“Double the drum kits, double the fun I’d say. They really had the crowd going Louie’s unique rapping coupled with the amazing sound coming from the drums and guitar.” Review of their Belladrum 2014 performance.

The bill includes one of Dundee’s current hot properties, Vladimir who were described by our reviewer as “not in the same league as say Mogwai, and bleak in an 80’s Thatcherite kind of way with hints of Theatre of Hate but with a stronger flavour of Bauhaus.”

Having toured with the likes of The View and The Twilight Sad they have also managed to make it into the much coveted BBC play list.

Hector Bizerk never fail to impress on the numerous opportunities that we have caught the band whether it was headlining The Seedling Stage at Belladrum last year or at the Ironworks.

When asked about success in our interview they reflected “We work hard at honing our craft and I think it comes across in our live show that we aren’t fucking around.  Some people are sceptical of hip-hop at first but we seem to have a knack of winning over audiences.”

Aberdeen’s Daydream Frenzy bring their brand of pop punk to proceedings joining Catholic Action who started the year featuring on many  ‘Ones to Watch’ lists. Two Inverness bands continuing to build their momentum locally and nationally, both having tracks played on Vic Galloway’s Radio Scotland show recently , Lionel and Silver Coast, also join the line-up.

Aaron Murray from Silver Coast said “It’s going to be a great summer for Silver Coast and we are honoured to have been invited to play The Music Farm. We are looking forward to playing and also to catching some of the other great acts on the line-up, bring on the 27th of June”.

A stage for singer/songwriters (The Loft Stage) will host the likes of Blair Mcleod, Cara Mitchell, James Mackenzie and Hollie Atkinson. The stage will also feature an afternoon ceilidh from Tweed, the traditional music trio who have played throughout the UK and Europe.

Stever Robertson, of 2010 Management, talking about the new festival; “I’m ecastic that 2010 Management are doing the event management for this brand new event, the level of talent coming together to perform for music fans in the Moray area is mind blowing! We are all in for a great day!”

With more than 20 acts to play the event, a further  announcement on the line-up is expected soon.

The event is to be held on the 27th of June with tickets are priced at £20.00 and limited due to venue capacity, on sale date is Friday April 24th and available online from www.musicfarm.co.uk and in person from The Red Lion, Forres Sound & Vision, Elgin and The Music Shop, Inverness.
