Foodies Festival – Edinburgh, Inverleith Park


Project Description

Hello how are you?

Summer has been very busy this year and also very enjoyable. I have recently celebrated my 30th Birthday. I am told 30 brings ‘Knowledge’ here is hoping.

I recently set up an Events company that books entertainment, structures and staffing for clients. Foodies Festival was taking place in Edinburgh hand the organisers of the excellent ‘Riot Bar’ asked me to sort their DJ’s for them. Something I was more than happy to do.

I also decided to book myself for it as a Friday daytime gig would be fun. Plus I love food.


Foodies was a great atmosphere, I was well looked after by George, Tommy and their team. Cocktails were flowing and sun was shining…well it was for less than an hour. The heavens opened but boy did we party.



The highlight of my set had to be when the rain started and everyone ran for cover I played ‘Walking On Sunshine’ followed by a lot of party tunes.

I went back on Sunday to check out some of the other DJs I booked (Check out Dahl Palfrey, Dirty Marc, Euan Neilson and Martin Law) I also took a trip round the stalls. There was plenty of


Feedback from the organiser was positive, “Superb!!! Thank you Craig, A real asset you are! Feedback was amazing!”

Also I am now booking out Riot Bar across Scotland, get in touch if you would like to discuss details of bringing a full bar production to your event.
