With children making up a third of our audience (and an intimate capacity of 5000), MugStock is one of the most family friendly festivals around.

First arriving on Planet Earth in 1984, Legendary children’s entertainmer, TV star and one man band Mr Boom is now known to at least two generations of wee Earthlings – He’ll arrive at Mugstock in the Spaceship Imagination – all the way from the moon – to help young MugStockers (and the young of heart, so everyone else yeah?) have fun – singing, dancing and playing musical games.

Mr Boom performs twice on Saturday 5th August:

  • 11:30am on our Dragon (main) Stage
  • 1:30pm on our Bumblebee (family) Stage

We are honoured to have this certified living legend with us at MugStock for the 5th time!
