Shenanigan

2015 - present

Shenanigan is a grassroots, multi stage, electronic music festival showcasing local DJs and artists annually since 2015. We are a community minded project, designed by a group of friends, with the aim to guarantee platforms to the creative community and to pool together musical talent with the ethos of everyone working together and supporting each other!

Shenanigan has seen 3 great years over at Bogbain Farm from 2015-2017. As the project grew from strength to strength, 2018 saw the project move over to a new, leafier, woodland environment at Wildwoodz, Munlochy. As well as keeping things fresh, this move opened up huge opportunities for the project, allowing us to become more creative and offer a whole new vibe to the event. The new venue was a huge success and as the event flourished even further, it only seemed natural to make the transition to a 2 day, camping event for 2019. This allows us to build on the new vibe and offer even more of a festival experience.

In the run up to our main event, Shenanigan also run ‘DJ Battle’ style events. We recognise that the up and coming, younger generation are the future of the industry and are the ones that need our help the most. The aim of these events is to offer opportunities to newer DJs who may be struggling to get themselves heard, allowing them to get behind the decks and showcase their skills. We then select one DJ to join us over at Shenanigan and perform alongside a huge network of DJs. We have seen first hand how this has helped them to fulfil their ambitions.
