More About MugStock / Key Dates & Times

  • MugStock is a Festival of Music & Merriment for all ages, featuring live music across 3 stages, a dance tent, kids stage, cabaret tent, family field and marquee, workshops, walkabout performers, bars, street food, stalls and more, including a flashmob.
  • Camping, glamping and live in vehicle pitches are available and day visitors are also welcome.
  • Site build should commence on Friday 26th July. Deliveries via articulated lorry of essential site infrastructure such as fencing and ground protection will be made between Friday and the early part of the following week
  • Marquees, sound systems, generators and traders will arrive by truck, van or trailer (estimated 20 contractors) between Tuesday 30th and Wednesday 31st July.
  • Sound systems will be tested at points between hours of 10am – 8pm Thursday 1st and no earlier than 10am Friday 2nd August.
  • Stage and site lighting will be tested after dark on the evenings of Wednesday 31st July and Thursday 1st August. Any strange colours or flashing lights should not immediately be assumed to be the work of aliens!
  • The campsites and box office will open at 12pm on Friday 2nd August
  • A “Flashmob Bootcamp” will take place Friday from 3 – 4:30pm. This is an opportunity for weekend campers to take part in something fun, silly and top secret later in the weekend!
  • Live music on Friday will start at 5pm and finish at 1am, with the volume lowered for the last 2 hours.
  • On Saturday and Sunday the box office will open at 9am and entertainment will start at 10am. On both nights the volume will be reduced at 11pm. On Saturday music finishes at 1am and on Sunday the music wraps up at midnight.
  • On Monday 7th August we are running a Monday Warmdown session in order to encourage people to be well rested before heading home. Live music, coffee and food will be on offer to campers between 11am and 3pm and the campsite will close at 5pm. We expect this will help stagger the egress of traffic.
  • We predict around 1000 cars will travel to site at staggered times, particularly Friday 2nd August 3-9pm and Saturday 3rd August 9am-1pm. Experience suggests that departures will be staggered with peak times being Sunday afternoon / evening and Monday.
  • A full traffic management plan will be shared on this page in due course.
  • We have been planning the event since late 2019 after delivering 4 festivals (2015-2018) in Mugdock Country Park near Glasgow. We are very excited to finally bring the event to our new community.
  • MugStock is a voluntary led, grassroots festival which has had charitable status since 2015.
  • The event involves over 100 volunteers and we’d love to involve as many people from the local community as possible. Visit www.mugstock.org/volunteer for more details.
  • We sincerely want the festival to be an asset to the people of Perth & Kinross and look forward to working with you all to achieve that.
