Announcement on Footstompin:

The TMSA is saddened that the Auchtermuchty Festival Society has taken a majority vote to end our association with them after 31 years, and the Traditional Music weekend will no longer take place in the town.

It seems from the other forum that the cost of coping with the hooliganism & violence which have damaged Scots festivals for many years was just too big a burden so the yobbos win, even though don't know nor care. They will just go somewhere else now & annoy them- what a pity

The hooliganism was associated with the larger community festival that happens the same week, not the traditional music events. The council will still have to deal with the drunks once the TMSA has gone.

I suspect the main motivation is to give them an excuse to close more venues as under-used.

Re. Muchty Festival announcement, it does say "a majority vote".
The policing, etc. excuses sound a bit thin to me. Maybe there's new personnel on Festival Committee who are not folk music lovers? Who knows?

Shame to see it end, as it was one of the great annual folk festivals in Scotland.

Booooooooooo!

There will be music at the 'Muchty festival, just not TMSA. Music event will be much more Folk and "Caledonian Connections"ish than the very strict limitations of TMSA.
This is assumed to be much closer to local wishes.
Yes it is a sad day but when we only get VERY small numbers of competitors the huge cost of the campsite is impossible to support.
The Festival will continue with music in the square on both the Saturday and Sunday.
The cost savings and renewed enthusiassim by the local community looks to increase the local events, hopefully even returning our sadly missed Festival Barn Dance.

Fortunately I could stay with a cousin on a farm a mile away so haven't even used the campsite and was thus an utter parasite at this festival!
Though I did use the Tannochbrae Tearooms.
