Opening will be Drums n Roses, featuring some of the best pipers and drummers in Scotland with a mix of rock, pop and traditional Scottish music.

Clann an Drumma

Clann an Drumma, Scotland's premier tribal drum band. Their music involves Highland bagpipes with a twist of tribal drumming to get the blood stirring!

Cameron Hill

Cameron Hill, a young Ayrshire lad who will be reciting a very unique version of Tam o' Shanter that is not to be missed!

Emily Middlemas

Emily Middlemas is one of our two festival headliners. We are delighted to have Emily perform at TamFest. What a year she has had so far since finishing 4th in last year's X-Factor. After completing a sell out X-Factor arena tour, Emily has performed at many high profile events including performing the opening song at the Scottish Grand National at Ayr Race Couse in front of 17,000 people! There will also be a TamFest surprise being announced from Emily on the day!

Jane McCarry and Mark Cox

It is an honour for us to have as one of our headline performers Jane McCarry and Mark Cox who are none other than Isa and Tam from Still Game!! Without a doubt they will be one of the highlights of the festival. You will not want to miss their performance which is being specially created for TamFest!


Angelstar are without a doubt one of Scotland's best corporate/function bands, performing at many top level corporate events every year. Their two singers Fran and Cheryl have voices and stage presence that are matched by few!


Closing the main stage will be popular Ayr band Fusion who have played at many high profile events and will be closing the stage in style with songs we all know and love!
