BBC ALBA TO BROADCAST THE BEST OF THE TIREE MUSIC FESTIVAL 2015

Tickets for this year’s Tiree Music Festival (18-20 July) have now sold out but those who weren’t lucky enough to snap up a few will be able to watch the best performances as BBC ALBA record highlights from the island festival for the first time.

The channel will record some of the finest acts from the multi-award winning event whilst also providing an insight into the charm and colour that makes the festival and the island so appealing. Transmission dates will be confirmed in due course but it is expected that highlights will air over the course of several weekends in late-July to early-August.

Margaret Cameron, Channel Editor at BBC ALBA, said: “BBC ALBA has become renowned for showcasing some of the finest music on offer in Scotland and the Tiree Music Festival fits that bill, quickly establishing itself as a highlight in the nation’s musical calendar. The festival has a real family feel and we are certain that its charm and warmth will appeal to viewers as they get to witness some of the finest performances from the event.”

Festival organiser, Daniel Gillespie, said: “As each year goes by we are overwhelmed by the response to tickets, the festival is consecutively selling out faster than the previous year and often before we have even announced the full line up.

“We are absolutely delighted BBC ALBA will be broadcasting the festival. It will be the first time that TMF has been aired on television so will be a great opportunity for those who missed out on tickets, or who are considering attending next year, to get a feel for the festival and the island.”

The 2015 line-up includes The Fratellis, Funbox, We Banjo 3, Skerryvore, Mànran, Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall, Gentlemen of Few, Skipinnish, The Chaplins, Cherry Grove, Trail West, Gunna Sound, Dun Mor, The Lowground and Chunks.

Coverage of the festival will be produced for BBC ALBA by Bees Nees Media.
