A Scottish rock festival at the highest Inn in the UK. Leather and denim-clad rockers indulging in fresh cream cakes. Not something you see at your run-of-the-mill rock festival.
At the start of July, music fans travelled from all over Scotland, the UK and Europe to enjoy the landmark 10th anniversary of Wildfire Festival, which takes over the historic mountain-top village of Wanlockhead every year to showcase a new generation of grassroots music. So we connected Wildfire and The Delicious Dessert company and as the clock struck 2pm on the second day of the festival, it was free cakes for everyone at the festival as the travelling van from The Delicious Dessert Company completed the 240-mile overnight drive from Newark to Wanlockhead. A day that proved that doing something different is good. Festival goers, bands, Wanlockhead Inn staff, promoters and Wildfire organisers all got a big surprise as free cream cakes were handed out to celebrate the event’s 10th birthday. A change from the festival usuals — such as beer, chips or burgers — as everyone enjoyed a surprise moment of joy, a little something to mark Wildfire’s birthday and a thank you to everyone for making the journey to Wanlockhead.
