FIDIR does Belladrum!

Posted by Fidir Blog on

Early August saw one of the highlights of the Highland calendar in the Tartan Heart Festival set in the stunning surroundings of the Belladrum estate near Inverness. Of course, we at Fidir couldn’t resist the opportunity to join the fun!

Belladrum is a uniquely Scottish experience, you won’t find an atmosphere like it anywhere else. With a huge presence of local and internationally renowned acts and performers, there’s something for everyone. And the recent award of UK’s most popular summer music festival from a site with the reputation of tripadvisor really cements its place as an event not to be missed.

Yet another strong line up saw Scottish favourites Franz Ferdinand close the festival on Saturday night with legends The Pretenders topping the bill on Friday and none other than Sister Sledge seeing out the opening day. There was also plenty of Scottish talent such as KT Tunstall, Twin Atlantic and Neon Waltz on display to keep the crowds going.

The festival proved a great opportunity for Fidir to get our product out on display, with plenty of people coming to check out our stall and grab some product. We gave the Packable Rucksack a good test, with it proving to be the perfect festival accessory, even withstanding Friday’s downpour with ease. We were also fortunate enough to have the guys from Franz Ferdinand, Feeder, Neon Waltz, Slow Club, Milburn and Kioko stop by and have a chat.

Our friends at Black Isle Brewery and Tomatin were on hand to keep the party moving. Aswell as this, the cycling stunts of Highlands hero Danny McAskill and friends and a host of circus performances kept the crowds entertained on breaks from the music.  

Thanks to the bands who came to visit us. Also huge thanks to James and Rose of Ancarraig Lodges for their invaluable support over the festival.
