As picturesque as the setting of the Knockengorroch World Ceilidh may be, the hills will be alive and jumping with sounds and people the weekend of 26—29 May and we’ve invited a couple of world famous soundsystems to help us along on our musical travels…
Knockengorroch residents of the highest reggae order since 2005, once again the unbeatable and world renowned Glasgow-born Mungo’s HiFi Soundsystem returns to the scenic hills of Galloway to bring 3 days of banging sounds to The Sheiling Tent.
Hailing from the West of Scotland, the gang and their incredible set up are at home in the unique setting of Knockengorroch but their name has travelled far and wide, now internationally celebrated for their brand of forward thinking reggae music through their Scotch Bonnet record label and countless shows and parties across the world.
Now notorious among World Ceilidh goers, you can find The Sheiling Tent jumping all weekend with a typically lively Knockengorroch mix of cultures, sounds and vibrations courtesy of Mungo’s HiFi Soundsystem once again for 2016. Look forward to the closing ‘Mungo’s night’ on the Sunday where they will take us out with the mighty sounds and guest MC Cian Finn.
Electrikal Soundsystem has been booming out at festivals, clubs and special parties across the UK and beyond since 2009. We now have the great pleasure of welcoming this powerhouse soundsystem to the beautiful setting and unmatched vibes of our World Ceilidh 2016.
Electrikal has been making a big name for itself, touring an undeniable big sound (a 50KW hand-built sound system to be exact!) and this summer makes interesting journeys to Croatia and more to rock the infamous boat parties of Outlook and Dimensions Festivals and now the hills, trees, waters and people of South West Scotland this May 26—29 at Knockengorroch.
All this and many more good vibrations to be found over the hills and beyond at the World Ceilidh 2016, tickets available here.
