Phase 4 events presents May-Day Festival!
Introducing May-Day Festival… A monster of a day of music for your diaries on Sunday 30th April 2017! Phase 4 events are hard at work organizing Fife’s newest festival. Set to take place at Glenrothes Airport, around 1500 people are hoped to attend. The line-up will feature a wide range of music from International acts, local bands and djs over the day. One of the airport hangers will be taken over to offer an amazing line up of dance acts. The boutique festival will also offer a spectacular array of food vendors, entertainment stalls and a fun fair.
Festival organiser Jason Frew told the Mumble: “May-Day Festival is set to be a really spectacular addition to the national festival calendar. Taking place each year on the May bank holiday weekend it will bring big acts and new talent from across the world to Fife Airport! We are delighted that Fife Council has awarded £5,000 towards supporting the first May-Day Festival. It will help to support our sensational plans to introduce this new festival, bringingtogether several events from across Scotland in to one huge one here in Fife.”
The Council’s Executive Spokesperson for Community Health & Wellbeing, Cllr Linda Erskine, added “As a new initiative to Fife, the Council is delighted to be supporting this exciting new festival through the Strategic Events Investment Programme. The unique setting of Fife Airport and the exciting programme of this boutique festival will certainly attract significant attention from music lovers. The Council estimates the spend generated by those audiences attending in its first year will contribute around £185,000 for the local economy. We are also confident that as this festival develops, it will indeed become a permanent fixture in Scotland’s calendar of signature events.”
Bob Gamory of Fife Airport said “Fife Airport are delighted to be able to host Fife’s and indeed Scotland’s newest music festival May-day in partnership with Jason, his team at Phase 4 and Fife Council. We expect that the festival will really take-off in 2017 with some high flying acts destined to grace the various stages.”
Chair of Fife Council’s Glenrothes Area Committee, Cllr Bill Brown, commented: “I’m delighted that this new event in Scotland’s calendar will be staged in Glenrothes. The Airportis a really versatile location and it will be very interesting to see the events on the airfield, in the aircraft hangers and under cover. The Festival will also be offering up a pop-up shopping village and caterers that reflect the best of local produce. I am pleased that the organisers plan to source as much of the infrastructure, supplies and services from the immediate locality as possible which will certainly provide a boost for local businesses. Everything from fencing to recycling is available in Fife and partly why they chose this particular site. This new event will also help achieve our aims of creating an environment that is welcoming to visitors and offer new social and cultural activity.”
