KT Tunstall to play at The Loft!

Monday 11 July 2016 @ 00:00

Shaun Ryder, Mumford & Sons and Paolo Nutini have all played here.

We know what you’re thinking, we’re talking about Wembley, or maybe Glastonbury. But you’re wrong. We’re talking about a lovely Wigwam® Holiday’s site in Elgin called the Loft Wigwams.

The Loft

The Loft Wigwams are situated in the heart of the Highlands, between Forres and Elgin and while it’s an obvious glamping location with various Wigwams, lodges and bell tents, it also has a very large area for campers.

In addition to the glamping they have their own music venue which regularly hosts gigs and festivals.

After chatting to Victoria from the Loft we realised just what a hidden gem this place is. Victoria very kindly told us that KT Tunstall is playing this venue in August this year and she is giving a great prize of 2 tickets to see KT Tunstall, along with 2 nights accommodation for the winner. This is such a great prize as KT Tunstall is definitely a favourite with music goers the world over.

As the conversation progressed we discovered that some amazing acts have also played at The Loft. Mumford & Sons, Shaun Ryder, Paolo Nutini (who by chance used to be a support act for KT Tunstall), Treacherous Orchestra to name but a few.

And Victoria’s claim to fame - she’s cooked tea for everyone of them!

The Mumford & Sons gig was unsurprisingly a sell out. Shaun Ryder lived up to his name when he played there a while back and Paolo Nutini played a gig to only 40 people. Let’s repeat that - Paolo Nutini played to 40 people! A couple of days after his gig he appeared on the Jonathan Ross show and his music career exploded from there, although Jonathan Ross had difficulties understanding his Scottish accent!

It looks like the Loft is the place to discover the next big artist.

Along with these amazingly popular artists, the Loft also host popular artists such as TheTreacherous Orchestra and The Saw Doctors who have the most dedicated fans ever. They literally travel all over the UK (and even further) to see these artists perform so it’s definitely one to book in advance if you know they’re playing.

Asking Victoria and the rest of the team at the Loft which bands they would like to see perform there gave a very interesting mix. 2 votes for Stereophonics (great choice), 1 vote for Guns N Roses and another vote for Metallica! But the Stone Roses was a unanimous YES from all the team, and probably the rest of the Wigwam Holidays team too (we’re still clinging to our Indie teenage years!).

And if you’ve any doubt as to Victoria’s love of indie music, check out her Happy Sundays events, clearly inspired by the Happy Mondays!
