Connect refines the festival template
Geoff Ellis' boutique bash debuts in Scotland
03 September 2007
The Beastie Boys, Primal Scream and Bjork
headlined as 16,000 revellers came to enjoy the boutique bash. The stunning location provided the perfect backdrop for a brilliant
bill and a wide selection of food and drink.
The event, run by T in the Park maestro Geoff Ellis, brought the usual array of punters in fancy dress and Scottish men sporting kilts. It also saw festival-goers travel from as far as France, America and Australia for its debut.
However the festival fashionistas seemed to take a weekend off. The scantily clad girls usually found scattered around festivals were absent, or at least adequately dressed, for the event.
Their absence may prove that Connect is set to cater for a more mature crowd (as was intended) especially with the varied choice of local produce available over the weekend including whisky and oysters.
