We can’t think of a better way to spend a weekend than on beautiful Bute, and the artists seem to think so too…

Roddy Woomble: Idlewild are delighted to be coming to the beautiful island of Bute to play at Butefest this year. Over the years we have endeavoured to play concerts on as many Scottish Islands as possible – this will be our first time playing on Bute so we are all very much looking forward to it.


Butefest takes places at  King George’s Field from Friday 29th to Sunday 31st July.

We’ll have more from the artists in the coming weeks, in the meantime tickets are available here.
