Haddstock music and arts festival is moving online as a series of video events. We will use facebook/haddstock and our website www.haddstock.co.uk as platforms. Keep checking in as the line-up is being added to daily in the run-up to Haddstock at Home. Haddstock proper has been postponed until Sat 26th + Sun 27th Sept 2020.
Haddstock at Home that will take place on 30th + 31st May on social media and our website. The weekend will consist of live music videos recorded by some of our musicians during lockdown, album release exclusives and our main stakeholders including Art Point, ELPA, Low Impact Living, MADE in East Lothian, YMI/ Oi Musica as well as artists and performers are providing music and art activity videos. We will also post art and an authors’ interview/ writing process zoom video. We are encouraging families to create a festival arena in their homes and gardens and we’ll ask the public to nominate a community hero who will be given a locally produced gift from Haddstock.
Our aim is to produce an online event at this stage that represents what we have set out to achieve and utilises 6 months of planning. We have a diverse range of stakeholders and contributors who need a platform at this difficult time and we hope that people at home will benefit from entertainment and creative inspiration.
Hope you will join us next weekend.
With best wishes
