CAPERS IN CANNICH will be going all out for its final shindig, despite having to cancel their penultimate event later this month.

Festival bosses confirmed that poor ticket sales meant the August 27-30 event would not be viable.

Numerous Capers had been held in the Highlands over the last few months as the socially-distanced festival made history by providing live music through the uncertain demi-lockdown period of ongoing Covid restrictions.

One more is on the cards still with the final line-up confirmed for September 17-19, with organisers planning to go all out.

A spokesperson for Capers in Cannich said: “We’re saddened to say that our next festival, set to take place between August 27-30, can no longer go ahead.

"We are a small event working tirelessly to put on a unique experience for people in a safe environment and we continue to be blown away by all the positive feedback we’ve received from glampers, artists and suppliers.

“Unfortunately, we haven’t achieved the ticket sales we need for our next August event to be viable so we have had to take the difficult decision to cancel this weekend and concentrate on an incredible final weekend between September 17-19.

"Wee festivals like ours are made possible by you - our amazing supporters - and we do hope people will get behind us and join us in Cannich for an unforgettable final Capers festival of 2021.”

Manran and Cameron Barnes are on the bill for the Friday, along with Abba A Rival, Calum Macphail Band, Longstay and Katie Gregson-Macleod.

The Saturday then has performances from Scotty & the Skyshooks, Rythmreel, Keir Gibson, The Eves, Cody Feechan, Forgetting the Future, Cathal Murphy, Riley and Michael Cassidy.
