Websites for Festivals are so much fun to work on, always interesting and different. Updates each year for the new event line up or theme and seeing how the events develop over time. Keeping the website content and design fresh and individual is of upmost importance, events need to be unique and creative to ensure continued attendance. Interesting and user friendly ways to interact with the website and festival, creating unique and fun touch points for festival goers.
This music festival is based in Dumfries, Scotland, is a very niche music event in that it’s dedicated to the Ukulele. The organisers who put on an incredible festival each year, insist that every act is of the highest calibre and features the ukulele throughout.
Widely regarded as the largest event of this kind in the world, with some 800 or more visitors each year. The Ukulele Festival of Scotland has firmly established its place in the calendar of any ukulele player out there.
