Venues already signed up to stage live music events and fundraise include The Fubar, The Crooked Arm, Cape and McQs (hosted by Bulge Promotions), The Albion, The Westerton, Drouthy Neebors, No. 2 Baker Street and Crema Central Cafe. There will also be musicians playing at the bottom of King Street to entertain the crowds on Saturday, June 18th.
When the music stops at the rugby club, festival goers can party on and enjoy the music at The Crooked Arm in Bridge Of Allan and No 2 Baker Street.
Proceeds from the entire weekend will be donated to the Children’s Hospice Association, Maggie’s Centre Glasgow, Macmillan Cancer Support, Marie Curie Cancer Care and Strathcarron Hospice., all in keeping wit the event’s history, which has helped to raise more than £100,000 since it started as a small memorial concert in 2001, for local musician, teacher and writer Graham Whitelaw.
