They said it couldn’t be done. They said nobody would come. They said it was too far North and at the wrong time of year...
...that was 2005.
And Festival organisers are pleased to announce that tickets are on sale for Loopallu’s 10th birthday party!
They say: “Over the past nine years we’ve seen some of the music industries biggest stars come North and grace our little stage from Franz Ferdinand to Paolo Nutini.
“We’ve also introduced some ‘unknown’ acts like Mumford & Sons and Jake Bugg.”
The Loopallu add: “We’ve already started working on the line up for 2014, so expect to see some favourites from previous years as well as welcoming some new faces. Some known, and some you don’t know yet!
“Oh, and did we mention that we’re keeping prices the same for the third year in a row.”
