BIG STOOSHIE FESTIVAL SET FOR TAKE-OFF


This weekend sees the launch of Scotland’s charity music festival ‘The Big Stooshie’, with a flypast from a Typhoon aircraft of 6 Squadron based at RAF Leuchars set to get the event off to a flying start.

The gates open at 11am and the flypast will happen about 11:45. As soon as this has happened the fantastic Bags of Rock will open the main stage with an energetic set featuring bag pipes, drummers and a full rock band - a perfect fusion of Rock with traditional Scottish music.


The Big Stooshie welcomes some of the biggest bands to Fife for the three day extravaganza. Britpop icons James are joined by platinum award winning Glasvegas, and punk legends The Damned as the festivals three headliners, with other confirmed acts including Simon & Oscar from Ocean Colour Scene (Acoustic), The Hoosiers, Complete Stone Roses, From The Jam, The Boomtown Rats & The Beat.

The event takes place from this Friday - Sunday (4 – 6 May) at The Howe Country Centre in Giffordtown, Fife and hopes to raise over £100,000 for Help for Heroes and SSAFA Forces Help.


Featuring over 60 acts between 2 undercover stages, along with various stalls, a chill-out zone, top class catering services and a funfair, this is certainly a weekend not to be missed. There is also on-site camping for those wishing to experience the full festival atmosphere.


Festival director Jim Russell is delighted with the progress the festival has made – “This is a massive event for Fife, it has been a long time in the planning and the excitement surrounding the festival is enormous. Hopefully everyone will have a great time and we will raise plenty cash for the worthy charities”.


With literally only days to go until the event, organisers have confirmed tickets will be available to buy from the on-site ticket office during the weekend. Camping upgrades will also be available for those with day tickets at only £10 per head. Due to popular demand, limited half price tickets are also being offered to under 14’s high school children, when accompanied by an adult. These tickets must be purchased at the festival itself.
