goNORTH Festival Tour 2012

The goNORTH Festival Tour was introduced in 2011 to support new creative talent in securing opportunities at some of the finest independent festivals in the country. This exciting addition takes goNORTH back to its roots, showcasing new music and film at a geographically diverse selection of festivals throughout Scotland.

This year’s Festival Tour generated over 45 additional slots for showcasing artists over festival season 2012. Opening at Wickerman Festival in July with over 20 acts performing at the goNORTH Festival Tour Tent, we then visited Belladrum Tartan Heart Festival to programme the goNORTH Seedlings Stage, before closing at Loopallu in late September.

Since 2011, the goNORTH Festival Tour has developed over 200 additional festival slots and showcased the work of over 100 new independent filmmakers to audiences throughout Scotland.
