The Pin Ups Festival


So, scheduling posts for my “week off” didn’t work out quite as well as planned, so this is a slightly later than planned plug. At least I managed to remember before it has happened though.

Tomorrow night, Friday the 30th, sees the return of the Pin Ups Festival, and evening of fun, frolics, live bands and good music.
Playing live on the night are a host of ace bands.
There’s Campfires In Winter, fresh of a tour of flats this week for the launch of their new EP, who are of course no strangers to the festival experience, having the Campfires In Winter Festival from earlier this year under their belts already. Oh, wait, that was Aye Tunes Vs Peenko I. Thanks Huw Stephens…
Futuristic Retro Champions play too, before launching a new single of their own next week. You can find out more about that and get tickets for the launch gig on Bandcamp.
Sonny Marvello can also be found on the P-Break stage. Hey, why not snag a free track from them while you can?
Mitchell Museum round out the bill of live music. They too played Aye Tunes Vs Peenko back in April, but since then have clocked up plenty of miles playing some real festivals, such as T in the Park and Latitude. You may have noticed, but I rather like Mitchell Museum.
You can read a Q&A with all four bands here.
On the DJ front joining the regular PinUps DJs are guests Scott Paterson, Remember Remember, The Fabulous Craig Brothers and Craig McGee.
In addition to all that, don’t forget that Pin Ups is all about the FUN too. be sure to check out the Wham! tent, for all your Wham needs, the mysterious Peeling Field and more. Just don’t expect any Un Cadaver sightings.
Advance tickets are £4 from Tickets Scotland or the Pin Ups Website, or you can pay £5 on the door, with the action kicking off around 9pm.
