Visit the Gardeners Cottage pop-up stage for secret acoustic sessions.
After the incredible success of the Tiny Changes Gardeners Cottage in 2022, we couldn’t imagine Connect without our most intimate stage. You can expect to see acoustic sessions from established names and emerging Scottish talent, beneath the trees and amongst the flowers.
We know you love surprises, so we'll be keeping some of the sessions secret. If you want clues on who will be performing, you'll need to download the Connect App (coming soon) where you will get notifications that hint at who might be taking to the stage.
Last year, headliners The National, surprised an audience of less than one hundred people, with a beautiful set dedicated to their close friend, Frightened Rabbit's Scott Hutchison - for whom Tiny Changes was founded.
Scott performed at the original Connect Festival with Frightened Rabbit back in 2007 on a similar stage, so it was a special full-circle moment for all involved. With roaring applause and inevitable tears, this moment captured the spirit of Connect and of Tiny Changes in a nutshell; proudly working with our charity partner to help young people improve their mental health while supporting a thriving, diverse, and ever-evolving live music scene.
