Jocktoberfest have announced via Twitter that they will be returning for a fourth year on the 5th and 6th of September, 2014.


In a year that has seen a significant reduction of festivals in the Highlands, between postponements and cancellation,we are delighted to be informed that Jocktoberfest will be returning in the first week of September in 2014. The festival brings together a mix of beer, well above par food and of course a strong mix of music will no doubt be welcomed back this year.

2013 saw acts such as Casual Sex and Woodenbox mix with local talents such as The Leonard Jones Potential, Ashley and the Cosmonauts and Dylan Tierney.

What holds for the festival in 2014?, keep an eye on the Jocktoberfest website to find out

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
