Glasgow-based four piece Fatherson are quickly establishing themselves as one of the most exciting emerging acts in the UK. Set to release their debut later this year, the band have shared billing with the likes of Frightened Rabbit, Panic! at the Disco, Feeder, Twin Atlantic and Idlewild, as well as performing at festivals including T in the Park, Rock Ness and Belladrum.  

Support comes from local quintet Be Like Pablo. Placing Forres firmly on the musical map  with their particularly catchy brand of synth-pop, the band have picked up support from the likes of BBC Introducing, NME and Steve Lamacq.

Opening the night are Inverness four piece The Oxides. Blending a mix of influences to produce their brand of immediately infectious power-pop, the band are rapidly building a reputation across the region and beyond.

The night will close with a DJ Set from Dave Martin and Graeme Rogers.
