The Proclaimers have been announced as headliners for BFest 2012.

Yes, we know they are coming to Inverness (because we told you! The Proclaimers play The Eden Court), but the lure of The Proclaimers heading up to Wick will be far too much for us to take. The thought of missing out on BFest this year and listening to Charlie and Craig belt out the anthems (Remember the price just now is £25!)

bfest thumb - BFest 2012 announce Headliner act

Set on the picturesque banks of Wick river the festival which is on Saturday 11th August this year, has gone from strength to strength since it was established in 2010 (please check out BFest 2011 – Review).After selling out it’s capacity last year it has increased to 3000 this year.

Organisers Rypeco Promotions plan to have the addition of a family friendly area which will have entertainment for the younger members of the audience as well as a peaceful area for families to relax and enjoy the main stage entertainment. In addition to this there will be fairground rides, food village and one of the best stocked bars you are likely to see at a festival.

Organiser Ryan Cook says ‘As well as making sure the families are well catered for we like to make sure the adults are looked after also, and that means some great food on offer at great prices as well as a great range of drinks at the bar.’

Early bird tickets priced at £25 (Normal price £30) are on sale now from Mcallans Clothes Shop Wick & Thurso, Blackstairs Lounge Wick, Auld Motor Hoose Kirkwall, Mania Clothing Inverness and online at
