Big Tent Festival 2008
While the pretend hippies drive their SUVs to Glastonbury and this year’s T in the Park fades into lager-sodden memory, all yer actual planet-savers are off to Falkland Palace. The Big Tent Festival, which grew out of a response to the 2005 G8 summit, works with an ethos of co-operation, mutuality, solidarity and ecological long-term thinking. Basically, this means that alongside acts like Phil Kay, King Creosote (pictured) and the Peatbog Faeries, you get organic Scottish produce rather than another plate of chips, classes in wind turbine building, yoga and sustainable living, and a chance to get involved with various ecological political pressure groups.
Falkland Palace, Cupar, Sat 26 & Sun 27 Jul
