Skerryvore are to return to the main stage in Inverness next year as part of the Gathering Festival’s star-studded line-up.
The multi-award winning trad-rock band from Tiree will take centre stage at The Northern Meeting Park on Saturday, May 29, 2021, as the event makes its return to the Highland Capital.
Organisers were forced to pull the plug on the popular one-day event, due to take place next Saturday, in response to the coronavirus pandemic.
Now looking ahead to its return 2021, organisers have announced the full line-up of stars taking centre stage, with the majority of this year’s acts set to make an appearance.
Promoter Dougie Brown said: “We were completely devastated when we had to cancel The Gathering this year due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic but are delighted to have been able to secure so much for the planned incredible line up for next 2021’s Gathering Festival.
“By the time The Gathering 2021 comes around I am sure we are all going to be in need of a big party, and we can’t wait to welcome everyone back to The Northern Meeting Park to celebrate and enjoy the very best of Scottish music, culture, food & drink.”
Making a very overdue return to the festival is Celtic rock band Wolfstone as they celebrate 30 years in the music industry.
Scottish trailblazers Peatbog Faeries has joined the bill alongside world famous bagpipers The Red Hot Chilli Pipers, Torridon, Trail West and Rhythmnreel.
Bringing the curtain down on the festival will be The City of Inverness Youth Pipes and Drums.
The first Gathering Festival took place last year and sold out more than six weeks ahead of the event.
Organisers are also planning to unveil an expanded fringe programme of entertainment across numerous bars and venues in Inverness in the lead up to the main event at The Northern Meeting Park.
