Step Away From The Computer #13: SOSfest

If ‘cheap and cheerful’ sum up your kind of music event then SOSFest in Edinburgh could be just the thing: three days, two stages, one venue – and all for the price of a CD album. Like anyone actually buys those any more.

The GRV, Edinburgh.

Fascinating fact:
This week, SOSfest headliner Tommy Reilly has eaten a chicken pie, watched Inglourious Basterds and a bit of Balls Of Fury, and visited Glasgow nightspots Moskito and The Buff Club. Twitter really has taken all the skill out of stalking.

Friday, August 21 – Sunday, August 23.

Festival history:
This is its first year.

Total number of acts:

Cost of a ticket:
£37.50 (£12.50 per day: FridaySaturdaySunday)

So each act is worth:

Organiser’s propaganda:
“SOSfest is an over-14s gig so bring your brothers and sisters along! ID is not required unless you plan to drink.”
