So another Mofest has passed us by and it was yet again another sundrenched affair. I spent a memorable weekend catching up with some old faces, soaking up the sun and the festival vibes and I even managed to catch a few great bands too.
This yearâ€™s festival came back fighting with headliner Eddie Reader fitting the bill not to mention a brand new outdoor stage (as opposed to the exposed side of a lorry of bygone years).
Top of the bill for me however had to be Buffalo Soldier, a Dundee-based reggae band, back again for another year and feeling a lot of love from the steadily growing fan base in Montrose. Coming up for a close second was Ska/reggae outfit Urang Mutang who blew the socks off the audience both old and young – it was endearing to see the older revellers pulling their expert ska moves alongside the local youth.
Mix that in with the stunning sunset over Montrose Basin and youâ€™ve got yourself an unforgettable weekend. Ok so itâ€™s not Glastonbury or T in the Park but you really couldnâ€™t beat the atmosphere and spectacular setting of this wee gem of a festival.
