Starting with the Scotland-wide fundraising campaign to support its community buyout, the Hebridean island of Eigg has attained totemic status in Scotland and beyond, both among advocates of land reform and local self-determination, and for staging one of the country’s most (in)famous annual revels, the Anniversary Ceilidh which marks ‘Independence Day’ each June. The 2017 event celebrated 20 years since Eigg’s inhabitants became its owners, as well as subsequent achievements including the island’s own renewable energy supply, and here the festivities continue with a reprise of last summer’s line-up – who all have close Eigg connections - featuring Pictish Trail, Dàimh, Ja’Ma’Tha Ceilidh Band, Massacre Cave and DJ Dolphin Boy.
