Back for our 4th year with an exciting new date for your diaries, Audio Soup promises to bring a bit of sunshine and magic to the ever-elusive Scottish summer. You can now find this tantalising three-day festival on our new site in the Scottish Borders, and the team never fails to stir up the very best in musical marvels. Expect a tasty mash of homegrown talent and talents from further afield over five electric, eclectic and eccentric stages. A veritable plethora of audio visual experience, Soup strives to offer something for everybody’s taste regardless of age or gender.The Stages
Once again the main stage will be offering up the crème de la crème of Scottish bands and great bands from all over the UK, with unbeatable live performance from local legends Bombskare, Austalian born saxophone loop master Mr. Woodnote, The Kakatsitsi Drummers all the way from Ghana with Glasgow based DJ Rebecca Vasmant and a certain folk-explosion known as The Monster Ceilidh band, to name but a few. However, if your preferred poison is to carry it on into the wee hours Audio Soup is offering up three stages of soundsystem madness to tickle your party palette. Can’t resist some tasty techno? Head over to Abnormal Loads tent to receive the bountiful musical offerings from one of Scotland’s most omnipotent forces in the free-party scene. If drum and bass is more your thing we’re thrilled to announce that the much beloved Wub Hut is back with a vengeance, bringing with it an entourage of musical marvels that will keep you dancing until you can’t feel your legs. For a more intimate experience, the Beatroot Café will be returning to offer up a healthy serving of ambience complete with acoustic sets, tasty treats and gouch-spots galore for all of your relaxation requirements, getting more lively as the day goes on with some incredible bands and a full blown party atmosphere.Our Ethos
