The Oban Times - - Scotfest17 -

The Blue­bell Fes­ti­val is a three day long FREE mu­sic fes­ti­val (and mud free too!) held in the large beer gar­den of The George Ho­tel, In­ver­aray on the last week­end in May. Now in its 8th year, the team at The George are look­ing for­ward to wel­com­ing you to what prom­ises to be big­ger and bet­ter than ever be­fore! As well as non-stop FREE mu­sic thanks to the George there is beer, spir­its and cock­tails flow­ing to the wee hours. An amaz­ing BBQ is avail­able all day if you get hun­gry. The event kicks off on the Fri­day night with Bri­tish Coun­try band, ‘Ash­ton Lane’. Their most re­cent al­bum Nashville Heart re­ceived five star re­views and ra­dio sup­port around the UK and Europe. They are fol­lowed by head­lin­ers ‘Into the Ark’ who many will recog­nise as fi­nal­ists in this years ‘ The Voice’. This highly ac­claimed new­comer duo from Black­wood in South Wales will be tour­ing the UK & Ire­land in May 2017 – this is a great op­por­tu­nity to hear them live, lo­cally! Then it's all day mu­sic on the Satur­day and Sun­day. Picks of the bunch are The Bad­boys and The Ca­mans on Satur­day night and The Wild West fancy dress party on the Sun­day night fea­tur­ing Starsky and The Shiverin' Sheiks among many other coun­try and western artists! Ac­com­mo­da­tion can be dif­fi­cult to get over the week­end so book early to avoid dis­ap­point.

There is of­ten a minibus to ferry vis­i­tors to lo­cal ac­com­mo­da­tion at the end of the night.
