Organisers Wullie Slight and Scott St Clair Gunn dreamed up Midstock after their catering company, The Scullery, fed hungry Tough Mudder competitors at Dalkeith Country Park. Dalkeith resident Wullie realised the area was crying out for a home-grown festival, so he and Scott decided to create their own at the picturesque estate.
Without a drop of experience in the festival ocean, Wullie and Scott set out to fill the park with a festival that showcased the best of Scottish musical talent and set the pace for a week-long music, comedy and arts extravaganza in Midlothian.
After signing Scots indie rockers The View, the event snowballed. Big Country, The Bay City Rollers and fantastic local talent from The Merrylees and The Rebel Westerns were just a few of more than 60 performances enjoyed by over 4,000 revellers. They even enjoyed some September sunshine!
