Scotland's Howlin' Fling festival is set to return this summer.
Located on the Isle of Eigg, the festival is organised by Lost Map Records and always features a plethora of surprises.
Set to run between July 28th - 29th, this year's festival coincides with the 20th anniversary of the community buyout on the Hebridean island.
The Pictish Trail introduces Howlin' Fling...
Hi, Pictish Trail, here. Yup, it’s true. Our biennial event has mutated into an annual one. Well, for this year, at least. With the isle of Eigg celebrating its 20th anniversary of righteous community ownership, we thought we’d extend the conga-line. Since our very first bash in 2010 (entitled Away Game), Howlin’ Fling 2017 will be our fifth event on the isle, and we’re very excited. We want to party with you.
What’s happening at Howlin’ Fling? Well... there’ll be live music and DJs on the Friday evening, going into the wee hours… and then the fun will resume with music all-day-into-night on Saturday, taking place in and around the Eigg Ceilidh Hall. For those able to stick around on the Sunday, we’ll hang out, maybe go on a big walk, and sing some songs together.
