Burnsfest 2012

Every once in a while a gig comes along that raises the bar, and the line up for the first Burnsfest in Irvine has shaped up to be one of them.
With over twenty acts on two stages it looks like a smorgasbord of guaranteed talent has been laid on to whet the appetite of the most critical of music fans.
Whatever you want they have got it.
Looking at the list of talent it reminds me of this years Noizy Social Club festival in Cumbernauld.
That was another that was brimming with bands and artists who could well be on the cusp of breaking through.
I've been rather unstinting in my praise for both The Holy Ghosts and The OK Social Club and both are featured.
Along with them it isn't just the cream of the Ayrshire crop either.
Johnny Graham, the man behind all of this, has went near and far to secure a line up designed to knock peoples socks clean off.
Check it out.

Main Stage;

 The OK Social Club, The Holy Ghosts,Louie Deadlife (Hector Bizerk), Holy Pistol Club, Rose Parade, Soldier On!, Colin Hunter, Dirty Looks, Twisted Illusion, All But Gentlemen and Sticks n Stones.

Acoustic Stage;

A Band Called Cadence, Mairi Kerr, Johnny Graham, Alan Frew, Matt Scott, Taylor Buntain, Allan Trotter, David McIntyre, Anna Sweeney, Andrew Nicol and more TBC.

At a tenner a ticket what's not to like.
