A new annual outdoor music festival is to be staged in the capital of the Highlands. The Northern Meeting Park in Inverness will play host to The Gathering, which organisers say will showcase the best music, food and drink from across the Highlands.
It will be launched as a one-day festival in June but is already intended to expand into a two-day event the following year if there is enough public demand.
The “family friendly” event, which will be held in an 8000-capacity arena near the River Ness, is being masterminded by the same organisers behind the long-running Belladrum Tartan Heart Festival, near Beauly.
Trad music festival favourites Tide Lines, The Vatersay Boys, Elephant Sessions. Torridon, Hò-rò and Siobhan Miller are already lined up for next year’s event [ . . . ]
