Entertainment Galore at the Loopallu Festival

Approximately fifty-seven miles from Inverness lies the small town of Ullapool, Scotland. Between the 19th and the 20th of September 2008, Ullapool will again come alive with festive visitors eager to celebrate and enjoy the magnificent Loopallu Festival. It is a festival that has become increasingly popular in Scotland, boasting attractions, activities and wonderful entertainment for the entire family to enjoy.

Taking place in and around the picturesque Ullapool fishing village, organizers have ensured that there will be a breathtaking line-up of live entertainment, including performances by the Broken Records, The Family Mahone, Levellers, Red Hot Chili Pipers, Frightened Rabbit, The Rascals, 3 Daft Monkeys, King Creosote, The Vatersay Boys and many more. The 3 Daft Monkeys are a Cornish Nu-Folk band that always manages to get the crowd to their feet, while the Red Hot Chili Pipers will leave audience speechless as they liven up the evening with their Rock Bagpipes. Folk rock music will fill the air with the performance by the energetic Levellers and King Creosote, aka Kenny Anderson, has the electronic-acoustic folk section covered.

Over the last three years, the Loopallu Festival has attracted more than three thousand visitors each year, and this year it is hoped to increase even more. With tickets to the various attractions and events selling out quickly, it is anticipated to be even bigger than in previous years. Although most of the headliners to the Loopallu Festival have confirmed their attendance, additional shows and activities will be announced closer to the festival.

Between performances, visitors to the festival can look forward to foot tapping street performances, attend pub fringe shows, try some of the local cuisine or explore the village and its majestic surroundings. For accommodation, the Broomfield Camp Site will be available to pitch tents for the weekend. The most important thing to remember, is to have fun and enjoy the festivities. The Loopallu Festival has become a calendar event in Scotland, and while visiting this astonishing country during the month of September, tourists are reminded not to miss out on this fabulous music and entertainment extravaganza.
