Crawick Multiverse near Sanquhar enjoyed great success over the weekend after playing host to its first weekend music festival.

Music at the Multiverse saw performers and audiences gather for two great days of music at one of the country’s most spectacular outdoor venues.

The event took place in the Sun Amphitheatre at Crawick Multiverse, a spectacular 55-acre visitor attraction and land art instillation created by Charles Jencks and inspired by his ideas about astronomy.

Cumnock Chronicle:

The line-up for a superbly sunny Saturday was packed with contemporary music from ONR (with Robert Shields), Lucky Doves, Pedro and the Pirates, Archie Irving and Fathers Medicine.

On Sunday, Crawick Multiverse welcomed folk duo Smith and McClennan, opera singer Claudia Wood and pianist Katharine Durran, Flew the Arrow from Ayr and international harp player Wendy Stewart.

Gill Khosla, Crawick Multiverse Trust (CMT) chair, said: “It’s been brilliant – a real success.

“For many of the performers it was their first gig of this kind since the start of the pandemic.

Cumnock Chronicle:

“And for audiences it was a chance to get out, meet family and friends, and revel in some excellent entertainment.

“This was very much a pilot event, but the feedback has been excellent.

“I think it’s really shown the potential for Crawick Multiverse to become a major outdoor venue, giving people the opportunity to enjoy performing arts and activities of all kinds in an astonishingly beautiful setting.”
