Dance music lovers will soon have a brand new outdoor festival on their doorstep after a Carnoustie estate was announced as the venue.

The Panmure Estate outside Carnoustie will host the Festival of House, a two day event on Friday, June 10, and Saturday, June 11, next year.

“We are delighted to announce that Festival of House has found its site within Panmure Estates,” said Festival Director Craig Blyth, who is working closely with Angus Council and other agencies to bring thousands of electronic music fans to the area in 2016.

“From day one, Panmure Estates aligned perfectly with our vision for Festival of House,” continued Craig. “We recently carried out a thorough assessment of this site and submitted it to Angus Council, who have confirmed that no further Environmental Impact Assessment is required. This is now with the Scottish Government for final review.

“We can only thank everyone who has helped get the plans for this exciting new event to this stage. House music fans can look forward to a festival experience like no other in Scotland -and this will start with Panmure Estate’s stunning surroundings.”

The famous Rhumba Club is supporting this eagerly anticipated dance music event. “For over 24 years, the Rhumba club’s ethos has been based around doing things differently and it’s great to know that Festival of House will continue that trend,” said Wayne Dunbar of The Rhumba Club and a Festival of House organiser.

“It is very fitting that we’ll be celebrating the Rhumba Club’s 25th birthday in 2016 with such an impressive dance music festival in the heart of the beautiful Angus countryside. We are excited, motivated and committed to bringing an electronic music event of this stature to the East of Scotland.”

Organisers of the event have now embarked upon the full consultation and planning process with key agencies and local residents. “We are looking closely at the design and operation of this event to take into account the views of local residents and community groups,” said Craig Blyth.
