Iain Macphail

Festival role
Site manager/ director

How did you get involved in the festival?
I got involved in my first festival back in 2002 when I was a volunteer steward. I then moved onto the local security, before becoming site manager in 2015.

What makes HebCelt special?
Heb Celt is special because of the team behind it. Well, it’s more like a family, with everybody pulling together to make it happen. Plus the fact that it generates so much for the local economy.

Best festival memory?
My best festival memory would be when Van Morrison went off with Calum Watts’ homemade tablet and plum duff! Who can blame him though as its pretty darn good!

Favourite festival gig?
I couldn’t pick one festival gig as they are all superb!
