There’s much more to FyneFest than beer, food and music – this 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.
If you’re looking to enrich your FyneFest weekend, why not book a 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!
Tour tickets are priced at £5 per person, with seven tours planned across the weekend at regular intervals. Check the tickets page for full details of times and book quickly, as places on each tour are strictly limited!
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.
Salsa Dance Class
Join in the fun and catch the Latin rhythm fever with a salsa dance class on Saturday afternoon in the main marquee. Perfect to get you ready for the afternoon’s music from Samba Ya Bamba and Son Al Son, you’ll be guided through some basic, hip-wiggling steps to show off throughout the night ahead.
The team behind Yogability, a charity dedicated to providing free yoga classes to those with special needs and their carers, will be on site all weekend, offering yoga sessions to anyone and everyone in exchange for a small donation to help support their work.
Street (Field) Theatre
Expect to see some theatrics in the Main Arena on Saturday afternoon, as a street theatre troupe invade FyneFest for your entertainment, any maybe participation?
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.
Aye, not the most glamorous thing on the list, but useful to know about anyway. There’s a limited number of shows on the main field which operate on a token basis (different tokens to beer tokens). Tokens can be purchased on the Brewery Tap Room – but limited quantities are available, so if you’re the kind of person who likes a 20 minute soak to shake off a hangover, get in early to get a handful of the magic, little gold coins.
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!
