Oh goodness, this has been the busiest of Augusts and there is sooooo much to debrief and gather together now that the festivals are sadly heading out of town.
We had SUCH a great time at Connect festival this weekend, and it was the perfect way to say goodbye to this jam packed festival month here in Edinburgh – and the sunshine came to say goodbye too !! We loved checking out all the different stages, the food stalls and the site in general, finding new spots to hang out and enjoy the music from, and seeing some of the secret sets at the tiny changes x Gardeners cottage area….read our full review here.
We will most definitely be back to the wonderful festival – and hopefully bring a whole load of friends along to enjoy it with..
They have just announced the good news that they plan to bring the festival back in 2023 August 25th – 27th – put it in your diaries !!
If you’re looking for something a little bit different to mark the final festival weekend – then Connect festival, starting tomorrow could be it !
Edinburgh’s newest festival, Connect has the most amazing line-up and offering lots of different experiences and stages….With award-winning headliners and local grassroots talent, Connect is wrapped in outstanding experiences that also includes comedy, spoken word, debate and wellness, as well as exceptional food and drink from local talent and big-name Scottish chefs. Children over 5 are welcome to attend the festival with an adult, and there are a range of child-friendly activities on offer.
I’ve been having a little nosey around the website before the festival opens tomorrow and it looks incredible…..loads of great music, the speakeasy stage with comedy and spoken word, the rest and be thankful area offering experiences such as cold water therapy, family yoga sessions and workouts, and the tiny changes Gardeners cottage pop up stage featuring acoustic sessions throughout the weekend. Add into this an assortment of delicious food offerings and the promise of sunshine over the weekend and it looks set to be a fantastic event all round !
Tickets are still available to purchase here. And the best bit ? You can come home to your own bed in-between …. sounds like the ideal festival to us !!!
