Friday saw the release of the shortlist for the UK Festival Awards 2010.

I guess the problem with the awards is that the bigger the crowds, the more likely they are to activate voters (I am not sure and it is not obvious if or how they counter act this).

Despite this the Highlands are represented in two sections: best medium sized festival and best dance festival, both by Rockness. The competition is hefty, but all the help Rockness can get to put up a good fight would be gratefully appreciated so vote here .

Of course it did come as a surprise that Belladrum was not represented (less so Loopallu just because of the timing of the event ), where they did not get short listed for any of the obvious sections: Best family festival, Best grass roots festival and Best small festival.

But hey ho, we know the truth!!!

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 direct at chris@igi.gs
