In it’s third year Jocktoberfest returns to The Black Isle Brewery over the 6th and 7th of September.


Dubbed the ‘Greatest Scottish Beer Festival in the World’, Jocktoberfest is certainly renowned for it’s relaxed vibe, eclectic music and of course a fine array of beers. The festival last year saw bands such as The Lafontaines, Hoodja and The Whiskys play, indeed our review concluded “I left with a warm feeling, not just from the blonde beer, but that warmth that you get from being part of something really good.”

Hoping to keep up the momentum, a cracking array of acts have been announced;

The Leonard Jones Potential

Casual Sex

Red Ronson

Black Diamond Express

Hector Bizerk

Sara Bills & The Hasbeens


The Cairn String Quartet

Willie and Tabs Macaskill


Be Like Pablo

Grousebeater Sound System

Coast Road Truckers

Andrew Stills

Further acts are to be announced.

Tickets are available on the Jocktoberfest website.
