Outsider Festival cancelled

Economic downturn claims another victim

Outsider Festival cancelled

11 May 2009

Organisers released the following statement: “It is with great regret we have to announce that the Outsider Festival - due to take place in Rothiemurchus, Aviemore on Saturday 27 & Sunday 28 June - has been cancelled.

The Outsider programme was ambitious and ground breaking, combining live music and DJs with activities - including mountain biking and running - with debate and discussion, film, comedy and food in a uniquely beautiful and environmentally important setting; Rothiemurchus in the Cairngorm National Park.

However, due to the unremitting economic downturn and audience numbers now projected we feel that we cannot produce an event that provides you with a festival experience at the level that is expected and deserved.

Clearly a recession is not the time to realise this bold new concept but we still believe the Outsider was right for its time and perfect for its place and are hugely disappointed that it is not going ahead.

We offer our sincere apologies to all ticket holders for any inconvenience and disappointment. All ticket holders will receive a full refund and we have also agreed to reimburse any booking fees incurred. Reimbursement will be processed automatically at your original point of sale.

A great number of people have supported and worked on the Outsider Festival and we thank you all.

The location of Aviemore & Rothiemurchus was key to the environmental and activity programme of the event and as one of the UKs most important natural areas will be open all summer with a full range of activities.”


Sharleen Spiteri, Teenage Fanclub, King Creosote and James Yorkston were set to play the festival.
