Here are my thoughts on Festival on the Loch.

The sleepy village of Lochwinnoch, not so far from Glasgow, had a Music Festival in May 2001, Festival on the Loch. Foot and Mouth restrictions meant the festival had to be moved to the local football fields - kind of blowing that name, somewhat.erm
It was to be a major event with wonderful acts and an impressive stage borrowed from the BBC. Acts included:- Horse with BBC SSO, Dougie MacLean with BBC SSO strings, Ossian, Kathryn Stott, Whistlebinkies, Niel Gow Ensemble, Trent(who????), Fedrico Mondelci, Salsa Celtica, Drumatic, Elphinstone, Rsamd Chamber Choir, Cappella Nova and many more......a wonderful firework display, coordinated with the BBC SSO,( provided by Pyrovision, who do the finale fireworks at the Edinburgh Festival) ended a great weekend.cdouble

For those who attended it was wonderful.

Unfortunately, due to a bad decision, the event was poorly advertised(hardly atall) and was a financial flop. The expected thousands didn't attend leaving Lochwinnoch with an abundance of security men and hotdog buns!!!hotdog

Nice try, committee.

I expect ther is, literally, tens of you who have heard of Lochwinnoch but did any of you hear of our Festival.
I'd be interested to know.biggrin
