Ukulele Festival of Scotland

Responsive Web Design for Festival Event in Scotland

Event websites are so much fun to work on, always interesting and different. Updating each year for the new line-up or theme and seeing how the event develops 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.

This particular music festival is based in Dumfries, Scotland. A very niche musical event in that it’s dedicated entirely 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 it’s kind in the world, with some 800 or more visitors each year. The Ukulele Festival of Scotland has firmly established it’s place in the calendar of any ukulele player out there.
