Fancy spending the weekend in the magical rolling hills of Inveraray whilst sampling some of the finest, eclectic and hippest indie music around? YOU DO???!?

Having teamed up with Scottish Hydro Electric, The UK’s leading producer of cleaner, greener renewable energy, Hydro Connect has found ‘a match made in green festival heaven – so you can have fun in the knowledge the faeries aren’t getting kicked out of their trees’.

The glistening Loch Fyne and haunting Castle make the perfect backdrop to experience the sounds of Grinderman, Franz Ferdinand, Sigur Ros, Manic Street Prechers, Sparks, Bloc Party, The Breeders, Camera Obscura, Howling Bells and Goldfrapp.

As proved in their 1st year in 2007, Hydro Connect offers a range of alternative entertainment in the form of burlesque night Club Noir and swing club Vegas! As well as a bit of luxury at The Rest and be Thankful Spa, The Speakeasy Café – a space where coffee and conversation, acoustic performances, storytelling and a bit of comedy will be the order of the day. In the Circuses and Bread Field you can enjoy delicious local food including world famous Loch Fyne Oysters and venison burgers, Fyne Ales and sample an array of drams from the Whisky Bar or relax in the Champagne Bar.
