Tiny Changes X Gardeners Cottage

Connect and Tiny Changes are teaming up to host exclusive performances at the Gardeners Cottage pop-up stage at this year’s festival. A home away from home, fans can visit the Gardeners Cottage on the festival site between 1pm and 4pm each day for secret acoustic sessions from a mixture of established names, alongside the best emerging Scottish talent playing the festival.

But that’s not all - only half of the line-up is being announced...

The remaining secret acts will be teased through a series of clues on the day of their performance. Festival goers will need to download the app and switch on their notifications to know when these exclusive performances will take place.

Tiny Changes is a charity for supporting young people’s mental health, set up in memory of Frightened Rabbit singer Scott Hutchison. Scott performed at the original Connect Festival with Frightened Rabbit back in 2007 on a similar stage, so it’s a special full circle moment for all involved. Tiny Changes is Scott’s legacy and Scotland’s very first national children and young people’s mental health charity funding projects and ideas that help young minds feel better.

The Tiny Changes team are excited to bring this special event to the Royal Highland Centre this August, with CEO Kara Brown saying:

“Tiny Changes is so excited to be this year’s Connect charity partner and add something extra special to the festival together, inspired by Scott and helping young minds feel better. Without the support of the music industry and music fans, we wouldn’t have the national youth work presence we do today, and we’re just getting started.”
