Scotland's Outsider festival cancelled Texas Tickets

Economic downturn is blamed by organisers

Scotland's Outsider festival cancelled
Scotland's Outsider festival is the latest event to be pulled due to the recession.

Former Texas singer Sharleen Spiteri had been due to headline the eco-themed weekender at Rothiemurchus Estate near Aviemore, set to take place on June 27-28.

First launched in 2007, the family-centred event fused live music with outdoor activities. But announcing the cancellation via the bash's official website, Outsiderfestival.co.uk today (May 11), organisers concluded that "clearly a recession is not the time to to realise this bold new concept".

The message reads: "The Outsiderfestival.co.uk programme was ambitious and groundbreaking, 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 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."

Full refunds are being offered to ticket holders. See Outsiderfestival.co.uk for more information.
