SCOTLAND’s charity music festival ‘The Big Stooshie’ will get of to a flying start this weekend.

A Typhoon aircraft of 6 Squadron based at RAF Leuchars will perform a flypast as the festival gets underway.

And there’s also a chance for the under 14s to get in for half price to what is sure to be one the musical highlights of the year north of the border.

Gates open at 11.00 a.m, at Howe Country Centre in Giffordtown and the flypast will happen about 45 minutes later as the Bags of Rock open the main stage on a fabulous weekend of music.


Britpop icons James, the award winning Glasvegas and punk legends The Damned are the headliners for the weekend alongside a host of local acts such as The Draymin, Modern Faces and Tango In The Attic.

Festival director Jim Russell is delighted with the progress the festival has made, and confirmed that tickets for under-14s will be half price if accompanied by an adult. “This is a massive event for Fife, it has been a long time in the planning and the excitement surrounding the festival is enormous,” he said.

“Hopefully everyone will have a great time and we will raise plenty cash for the worthy charities.”

For heroes

The festival is not-for-profit and hopes to raise over £100,000 for Help for Heroes and SSAFA Forces Help.

Organisers have confirmed tickets will be available to buy from the on-site ticket office during the weekend.

Camping upgrades will also be available for those with day tickets at only £10 per head.
