First acts for loopallu also includeJon Fratelli, The Bluebells and, of course,The Ullapool Pipe Band
The first headliner for the seventh Loopallu can now be confirmed as one of the UK’s most successful feel good acts of recent years, The Feeling. They are set to provide one of the greatest sing-a-long sets the festival has ever seen with a back catalogue of hits to choose from including, ‘Never Be Lonely’, ‘Fill My Little World’, ‘Sewn’ and ‘Set My World On Fire’.
Their 3rd album Together We Were Made was released earlier this month and saw the band perform an hour long special for BBC Radio 2 at London’s Mermaid Theatre.
Continuing the sing-a-long theme, and on the back of an extremely successful Highland tour at the start of the year is the Fratellis frontman Jon Fratelli. As well as playing songs from his new album, expect to hear some of the classic hits that made the Fratellis one of the biggest bands in the UK. Jon’s playing with a full band, including two drummers!
Still ‘Young at Heart’ is another set of homegrown heroes, who’ve recently reformed. The Bluebells. With a string of hits to their name, you’ll be able to hear the singing in Stornoway this year!
Finally announcement for the time being, the one band Loopallu wouldn’t be Loopallu without…. Kicking off proceedings, The Ullapool Pipe Band.
