Rob Ellen, the host and founder of the stage, has helped Andrea Dalgetty put together the line-up for the first EndoSpell Festival on Saturday and Sunday.

Rob said: "Andrea Dalgetty told me about her wish to start a foundation to help Endometriosis sufferers and asked us for help."

Medicine Music and Moose TV promoter and broadcaster Rob says: “After nearly two years which have been starved of live music, it will be good to turn the tide and ‘get back to where we belong’.

“Everyone misses Belladrum so bad – and live music.

“So when Potting Shed Stage fan Andrea Dalgetty asked for help and told me about her wish to start a foundation to help Endometriosis sufferers, we came up with the idea of a drive-in, bring-your-bubble (food and drink) festival.

“And the Potting Shed Stage spirit has moved in support of her efforts.”

Familiar Potting Shed names include Darren Poyzer & PigMan, Cousti from Glasgow and The Federals. Dance event promoters Full Volume Highland have been instrumental in setting up the event too, and DJs on the line-up include Scott Langley and DJ Ryz.

There will also be a new look for a Potting Stage regular, Calum Jones, who was ‘discovered’ by the Potting Stage when playing an acoustic stage at Belladrum as a teenager and invited over to that stage where he has appeared each year since.

But for Endospell, Calum will be unveiling his new line-up, Calum & The Boys.

Rob’s International Moose TV – iMTV – will be virtually broadcasting in between the main stage acts, so people who can’t travel to the festival will be able to get a flavour of it. Also, those at the festival can tune in on their own devices from their own festival ‘bubbles’.
