MugStock: A Festival of Music & Merriment

at Strathallan Castle, Friday 31st July – Monday 3rd August 2020

At our core MugStock is a community, and keeping our community safe needs to be our highest priority. Current predictions and advice make us optimistic that MugStock 2020 will proceed as planned from Friday 31st July – Monday 3rd August 2020 at Strathallan Castle.

Because the situation remains unpredictable, we have secured a contingency date. If MugStock does not take place on the planned weekend the event will be moved to the weekend of Friday 18th – Monday 21st September.

The 5th MugStock takes place at new site Strathallan Castle, near Auchterarder in Perthshire from Friday 31st July – Monday 3rd August (or Friday 18th – Monday 21st September – final dates to be confirmed by end of June), with music, merriment and extraordinary occurrences across 4 days.

Profiling the best emerging talent from Scotland and beyond, MugStock has earned a reputation for its diverse musical programme.

Workshops, films, walkabout performers, site decor and camping help add a bit more magic. Reasonably priced bars will sell a fine range of hand selected Scottish produce, and a village of independent traders will offer a wide array of food, clothing, festival essentials and gifts.

A festival for all ages, MugStock has been highly praised for attracting a friendly and diverse audience who help create our much remarked upon safe and relaxed atmosphere.

New for 2020 the music will continue into Monday afternoon, with a cool down session designed to promote responsible festival going, and see everyone off with style. Take Monday Off!

The core MugStock team are working hard behind the scenes and we are so excited to share recent developments which will ensure that MugStock 2020 is easily the best festival yet.

Applications for performers and workshop providers, volunteers and traders are open now.

We wouldn’t have got this far without the support of our amazing audience, donors, contributors, friends and families. We thank you all
