WITH just over three weeks to go to the ‘Little Fest in the West’, Loopallu, now in its seventh outing, is sold out!
And as a little treat ahead of the Saturday night headliner announcement, festival organisers are delighted to confirm Glasgow’s finest Admiral Fallow as the latest addition to this year’s line up.
Their stunning debut album ‘Boot Met My Face’ was released earlier this year to critical acclaim and with festival appearances up and down the country all summer, they are ready to show the Loopallu crowd what all the fuss is about.
The GoNorth Festival Tour also rolls up to Loopallu this year – bringing three of Scotland’s finest emerging acts to the festival in the shape of lo-fi garage pop trio Paws, beautiful melodies and big choruses from The Imagineers and recent Biffy Clyro and Newton Faulkner support act Finding Albert.
“We are delighted to be closing this year’s schedule at Loopallu,” said GoNorth festival director Shaun Arnold.
“The Festival Tour has proved a massive success so far, and we are really excited to be taking three of the most exciting emerging bands in the country up to Ullapool next month.”
And final addition to the Loop line-up for the moment is Scotland’s premier Ska outfit the incredible jugernaut that is Bombskare.
The latest additions join Friday night headliners The Feeling and, regarded as one of the most influential punk bands of the 70s, Buzzcocks.
Fratellis frontman Jon Fratelli will be making an appearance, as well as Kassidy, who are leading the pack at the current crop of Scottish bands ready to break through to the masses.
Also making her return to Loopallu is Rachel Sermanni, who has been making a name for herself recently and is set to treat festival-goers with her last full band show of the year.
The recently reformed Bluebells make their Loopallu debut and rising stars of the Celtic rock world, Tiree’s Skerryvore, will also be making a welcome return to the festival.
And not forgetting the one band Loopallu wouldn’t be Loopallu without – the one and only Ullapool Pipe Band!
