Hundreds of people flocked to a new family friendly event ‘MugStock’ at Mugdock Country Park over the weekend (August 7-9) to enjoy a fantastic range of live music, activities and performances.

The festival was a not-for-profit event, managed and run by a team of volunteers - supported by East Dunbartonshire Council, sponsors and more.

The stellar line-up included Californian experimental world fusion group Beats Antique - making their very first Scottish appearance - festival favourites Dodgy, heavy rock trio The Amorettes, solo guitar wizard Preston Reed, hi-octane fusion outfit Orkestra del Sol, folk sensation Siobhan Wilson and many more.

There was also theatre, circus fun and activities such as woodland rambles, storytelling, archery and crafts.

Councillor Eric Gotts, Chair of Mugdock Country Park Joint Management Committee, said: “We were delighted when the organisers chose Mugdock to host this very special event - which proved to be a real hit with people of all ages and from all over Scotland and beyond.

“Given this was the first year, the organisers’ achievements were incredible.

“As well as boosting visitor numbers, MugStock has helped to introduce a whole new audience to the park where there’s a wealth of activities, attractions and events all year round.”
