Gig in the Goil - More acts announced

Gig in the Goil is delighted to reveal the next wave of artists for our fifth birthday event, taking place from 1st – 3rd May this year.

30 Jan 2020

    Argyll Holidays award-nominated festival is hosted at Drimsynie Estate in the stunning Lochside village of Lochgoilhead, with Trail West leading the way in the latest unveiling, as they return to headline the festival for a record third time.

    2020 is a big year for the energetic six-piece band, as they celebrate ‘Ten Years of Trail West’, and what better time for a joint birthday party at Gig in the Goil!

    They’re joined by Country Music superstars Zoee & the Band, Dead Sea Souls – who will be performing a stripped back set on the back of their 2 SOLD OUT comeback nights at the famous King Tut’s Wah Wah Hut – The Hur frontman Iain Wilson, as he embarks on his debut solo project, and highly tipped Inverness outfit Gordon James & the Power.

    Hailing from the borders, JIGtime Ceilidh Band return to the festival for a second time, with a Saturday lunchtime ceilidh on the Main Stage, whilst local act Ceol Inbhir Aora will open the Main Stage on the Friday night with their first show together.

    Over in our Acoustic Lounge, a host of upcoming acts have been added including Megan D, Hugh Morrison, Maria, Cutchy Cash & Robyn Red – as well as our youngest performer to date, 10-year-old Sam Baird.

    DJ Tam Coyle also returns by popular demand, spinning all the traditional/ indie/ 80’s/ cheesy tracks until the early hours.

    Early-bird tickets are running low, with customer advised to book soon to avoid disappointment.
