There’s much more to FyneFest than beer, food and music – each year sees us continue our mission to offer a full range of entertainment for a full weekend of fun.
The Walkers Bar
Make the most of the beautiful festival site and surroundings with a leisurely walk up the glen to visit our pop-up bar for a well-earned beer and burger fresh from the BBQ. The Walkers Bar continues to be one of FyneFest’s most popular attractions – get on your feet, get some fresh air and clear your head for the evening with the one hour walk to the old riverside bothy bar. Remember, if taking your canine friend up the glen with you, they must be kept on leads at all times to avoid disturbing the farm animals.
FyneFest Pub Quiz
Flex your mental muscles with the biggest pub quiz in Scotland (maybe?), taking place on Saturday afternoon in the Brewery Tap Courtyard. Get a pint, get a team of four, get your thinking cap and join in with a chaotic afternoon of trivia. The winners will be crowned the champions and rewarded with a stack of tokens to use in celebration of their victory.
Signing up early in the weekend is highly advised – every year the quiz hits capacity and it’ll be your own fault if there’s nae tables left.
Meet The Brewers Panels
Introduced in 2017 with Verdant, DEYA, Magic Rock, Brewdog and more among the experts, the Meet The Brewers panels give you the opportunity to hear first-hand about the goings on in the world of beer and brewing. 2018 brewers panels will be bigger and better!
Stories While U Wait
Returning to FyneFest, street writer Petit Prance brings his trusty typewriter to the glen to write custom stories on subjects of your choosing. Luke’s creative, imaginative stories were a treat in 2017 (if you don’t believe us, check this), and we’re super-excited to have him back for FyneFest 2018.
If you’re looking to enrich your FyneFest weekend, why not joina guided tour of the Fyne Ales brewery? You’ll be shown around our state-of-the-art facility and given insight into the brewing process by an expert from the Fyne Ales team and get to see first hand how and where our award-winning beers are produced!
Tours are tickets, taking place planned across the weekend at regular intervals. Places will be limited, so stay tuned for more information on how to sign up.
For the Wee’uns
FyneFest is a family-friendly weekend of fun, so we’ll be running a kids entertainment program all weekend to keep everyone amused. With their own tent (The Wee Tent) to take over, kids will be catered for with activities which in previous years has included mini-sports days, face painting, movie nights and dedicated entertainers.
Full information on the kids’ entertainment program available soon.
Brewery Tap Shop
It’s Sunday, you’ve got tokens left, we’ve got beer in bottles for you to take home and drink away the sorrows of the best weekend of the year being over. Bring a growler and we’ll happily fill it with any of the beers pouring in any of the bars to help you spend any you haven’t lost.
New for 2017, a dedicated on-site shop selling a range of festival and band merchandise, in addition to camping essentials. The Festival Shop is the place to go to grab a souvenir of your weekend or grab the things you’ve forgotten!
Much, Much More
Previous FyneFests have included jam sessions, pirate parades, dance classes and lots more – stay tuned for information on what special entertainments are lined up for 2018!
