The festival,in it’s fourth year, has collected an array of high profile acts including Rachel Sermanni, whose debut album ‘Under Mountains’ and persistent touring ensures a continuing rising profile. The “epic lo-fi” Meursault was recently awarded Scottish Bloggers and Music Sites Award 2012 for his album ‘Something for the Weakend’. Fairly described as “Scottish ska juggernaut”  Bombskare guarantee to get you dancing. Another band who are charged to the same task are The John Langan Band who boldly state on their facebook page ; “If you’re not dancing like a professional ostrich you get a refund”.

Also announced on the eclectic line up include singer song writer Jo Mango, riding high after the release of ‘Murmuration’ last year, and she will be joined by label mates Randolph’s Leap. Horndog Brass Band are certainly veterans of the festival scene, with a well documented impromptu gig in the mud at Glastonbury 2011. Haight Ashbury, Galoshins, The Monochrome Set, Robyn Hitchcock, Rozi Plain and  Mother Ganga complete the first announcement.

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
