Kilmarnock - Dirty Weekender festival

Three days and two venues.
It's fair to say that Kilmarnock has never, and I really mean never, seen anything like this.
The line up is a like a whose who of bands and acts who are being touted as the next big thing rubbing shoulders with already established crowd pullers, and then there's the very fair amount of local acts who are classed as the cream of the crop grabbing some stage time to.
Bands who the BBC to the NME have lauded as being the Dogs B's are up there next to recently announced t-break stage act Brown Bear and the Bandits.
It's mental.
Rod Jones of Idlewild, We Were Promised Jetpacks, La Fontaines, Tom Hingley of Inspiral Carpets, Homegrown ska legends Bombskare.
Oh my giddy aunt.
This really is one of those occasions when those who attend will be able to sit back a few years from now and say 'yeah. I seen them in a small venue before they were huge'.
Throw a stone in Kilmarnock on these dates and there's a good chance you will hit someone with more talent in their little finger than most of us could dream of having in our whole bodies.
