Following the success of last year’s live MusicFest stage, we are delighted to announce that it will be a bigger, better affair this year. Fans of live music will be delighted to know that MusicFest will have 2 separate live music events running over both weekends of the festival. These will be as follows:
Uddingston Cricket Club
Saturday, 7 September 2019 • 3.00pm – 9.30pm
MusicFest Mainstage – An outdoor music festival on your doorstep
We’re kicking off the Scarecrow festival with a bang this year!
Mainstage is family-friendly, one-day, outdoor music festival to be held within the grounds of the Uddingston Cricket Club. We have renowned singer songwriter James Grant (former Love and Money frontman) headlining alongside established bands Lights Out By Nine, Jumbo Gibson and up-and-coming local talent Connor Fyfe to keep you entertained from our spectacular live outdoor stage. More acts to follow.
The Cricket Club’s excellent facilities means there will be a full bar with refreshments for adults, and kids young and old can look forward to a whole host of fun activities including a funfair, festival stalls and food vendors. We are keeping ticket prices to an absolute minimum so that as many people as possible can come along and soak up the music-festival atmosphere.
MusicFest Mainstage is not to be missed!
Bothwell Primary School
Saturday, 14 September & Sunday 15 September 2019
Our live Showcase stage will be in place at the primary school where all the action happens on the second weekend of the Scarecrow Festival. We will be bringing you live sets throughout each day from the cream of some of Scotland’s upcoming talent. Last year’s bands didn’t disappoint and this year’s line up look set to deliver some incredible music too. There will be something here for everyone. The line-up has everything from Acoustic and Rock right through to Celtic Rock, Surf Rock and hard hitting Blues.
Don’t forget your dancing shoes and your air guitar!
We are organising more brilliant buskers to play in and around the village. Our buskers always add to the festival vibe and will be organised by Glasgow’s Sick Children’s Hospital this year, with proceeds going to them.
