In the second-last week of August I’ll be at the Doune the Rabbit Hole festival, which this year is at sunny Cardross Estate , near Port of Menteith in Stirlingshire. The festival runs from Thursday 22 – Sunday 25, and I’m thoroughly pleased to be collaborating with long-time pals Hiva Oa on Friday night and performing solo on in the Poetry tent sometime on Saturday afternoon. Or something. It is a festival and all up in the air and / or mud.

Tickets for the full stretch are £88, and day tickets can be picked up for £30. The festival provides bus services from Edinburgh, Glasgow, Perth, Falkirk and Stirling, and gives loads of good, ethical travel advice.

Many thanks to Ed Stack and the Ten Tracks / Decagram crew.
