Tribute bands are a part of the music scene, but here's a tribute festival. The remote settlement of Gluss in the north of Mainland Shetland will be hosting a two-day event (20 / 21 July) featuring 28 bands and artists. It's close to Ollaberry and is part of the promotion work of Northmavine Community Development Company. When the crowds arrive for the Glusstonberry Festival they will not feel that cut off - for temporary broadband communications are being set up. Shetland News carries the story.
