Curtain set to open on Buckie’s new music festival

Mind Gone Blind top the bill.

Buckie is set to rock this weekend with a music event that it is hoped will become an annual event to showcase young talent in the area.

‘Love Punch Live’ is an idea sparked by a trio of enthusiasts who have been involved in organising the Wall of Rock open-air youth music festival in Lossiemouth. That festival has featured a number of talented young individuals and bands from the eastern side of Moray – now it is hoped they will have their own regular event closer to home.

Dave Simpson, Daniel Henderson and Daniel Edwards are behind the new event that will take place on Friday and Saturday evenings in Buckie’s Fishermen’s Hall.

“Love Punch Live was born from a desire to see our best and brightest musicians perform behind a very large sound system,” Daniel Edwards explained, adding: “There will be a spectacular full-colour laser light show that will dazzle the crowd in a way never seen before in Buckie.”

On the bill will be Christy Scott, Aimee Morton and Rowan Herd alongside Elgin’s Nicole Stewart. The Chris Grant Band from Keith will also take to the stage as will Speyside’s Sons of the Soil.

Other local bands booked for the event are Checkered Sky and The Unofficial.
