Angus Council has given screening clearance for two potential sites to host a brand new summer music festival in our area.

Festival of House, a proposed dance music festival, is planned to take place in Angus next summer, and two sites, one at Panmure Estates near Carnoustie and the other at Stracathro Airfield near Brechin, have been put forward to host the 15,000 capacity event.

“We are extremely happy with the screening opinions from Angus Council on two of our proposed sites: Stracathro Airfield and Panmure Estates,” said Craig Blyth, Festival Director.

“The local environment is of a high priority to the organisers so it’s encouraging that we now have measures and procedures in place to protect it.

“This feedback from Angus Council takes us one step closer to delivering a fantastic event that we believe will be very positive for the area. We are looking to deliver something original to customers with Dance Music being at the heart of everything we do but knowing that the local economy will benefit from this event is a massive driver for us.

“We would like to take this opportunity to thank Angus Council for their help and support throughout this process.”

The proposed Festival of House is due to take place in summer 2016, with early indications suggesting June, and is being supported by the famous dance night, The Rhumba Club.

“We are absolutely thrilled that plans for the proposed festival have passed another important milestone,” added Wayne Dunbar, director of The Rhumba Club and Festival of House Event Organiser.

“Angus Council’s positive feedback on the proposed sites is hugely important to us. We have a strict ethos here at Festival of House and, whichever site we progress with, knowing that the impact on the environment and the local community will be negligible is fantastic news.

“However, there’s so much more to be done. We will continue working day and night, behind the scenes, to deliver a new and exciting festival for the people of Scotland and beyond. We would like to thank everyone for their support and interest so far.”
