Tigerfest will be setting the proverbial joos loose across the border in Scotland for a series of gigs throughout May.
An impressive array of Scottish talent – Camera Obscura (pictured), King Creosote and Emma Pollock, to name but a few – will take to the stage at venues across Central Scotland, assisted by a wealth of international acts like Nouvelle Vague, Tom Hingley and Kid Carpet.
There will also be a host of up-and-coming local bands performing such as DriveBy Argument, We Are The Physics, Popup, Odeon Beatclub and De Rosa.
The event has been a roaring success since beginning in 2004 as a showcase for local talent.
