Joining Bohemian Monk Machine on Friday nights bill is Irvine band Solider On, guitarist Ben Prescott explains how they are feeling about playing live music again saying: “Looking forward to coming up to Pitlochry because the festival itself seems like it’s great run and everybody really enjoys it.

“We know a few bands that are playing it as well, we were obviously meant to play it a few years ago so it’s actually good to get there this time. As far as live music goes it’s just great to have everybody in the one place and get interfacing again.”
