It’s with great disappointment we have to announce that Mugstock 2021 will not be going ahead.

Throughout this year we have changed and re-changed our plans so many times trying to create the best festival we can. The earliest projected date for the relaxation of event-related lockdown restrictions is now the Monday after our scheduled weekend, making it clear that the jolly care-free weekend we’ve all been waiting for simply isn’t on the cards this time around. 

Our long awaited debut at the beautiful Strathallan Castle can now be experienced from Friday 5th – Monday 8th August 2022. We’re excited to exclusively reveal that Scottish live hip hop legends Stanley Odd, and pioneering Gaelic musician and producer Griogair Labhruidh (as heard on the Outlander soundtrack) will be among the first to perform at our stunning new venue.

All ticket holders have been emailed. Please get in touch if you can’t see us in your inbox. 

Here at MugStock we like to look on the bright side, and so we feel we should let you know that there are exciting rumblings coming from The MugShack, our new headquarters in Cumbernauld. We got the keys to this iconic venue, which used to be Cumbernauld’s town hall and has hosted such legends as Alice Cooper, on the day the first lockdown was announced. We’ve been chipping away at renovations, and just last week reinstated power to the stage, meaning that we’re just about ready to invite people into our auditorium for some gigs, jam sessions and community projects. Whilst we’ll have to wait a while to get together at Strathallan we are sure that many a good night of music and merriment will be had in the MugShack in the interim months. Look out for live streams and volunteering opportunities coming soon…

One final silver lining is that we can now offer 12 month payment plans for MugStock 2022. With a chance to snap up a weekend camping ticket for as little as £8.75 a month there’s never been a better time to secure your tickets and join our community. There’s a payment plan calculator on our website at:

Thank you so much to our supporters, funders and to every artist, volunteer and ticket holder for continuing to be part of the MugStock family, and for supporting and believing in our mission to create the best wee festival possible.
