A WEE INTERVIEW WITH LOUISE HARE
You have changed the venue for this years Equinox, why?
We literately could not find anywhere in East Lothian that was big enough, indoors and ok with the noise we make , sad because we had roughly 600 people attending last year and mostly from East Lothian. Really looking forward to being in the quirky biscuit factory this year tho and hoping loads more Edinburgh crew will get involved.
Hows July lookin for the big one?
Summer soup is coming together really well, the line up is almost done and will be released in the next week, some really good names on there and some festival circle favorites too. There’s a few new surprises on the field this year as well as our usual spaces like theBeatroot tent and the Electrikal sound system. Ticket sales are going well and we are all just looking forward to being together on the field again …
