Isle of Skye Music Festival
|Isle of Skye Music Festival|
|Genre||rock, pop, dance|
|Dates||May or June|
|Location(s)||Ashaig Airstrip near Broadford on the Isle of Skye, Scotland|
|Years active||2005 - 2007|
It was one of the earliest festivals in the year, occurring in late May or June, a time known on the Island to be the driest in the year. From this location there are views of the coast and Cuillin hills; organisers describe it as "the most impressive backdrop of any UK festival".
The festival includes a mix of Scottish and international artists. It also seeks to promote the island’s cultural identity by featuring lesser known local bands and by selling traditional food such as porridge and local wild boar burgers.
The 2008 festival was cancelled after the organisers ran up over £500,000 of debts, and it was reported some musicians and suppliers had not yet been paid for work at the previous festival. The shortfall was due to much lower than expected crowds at the previous event, after spending large amounts of money on bands.
