Frànçois & The Atlas Mountains: The Away Game 2012

The UK's favourite French indie act have been playing one of the more unusual festival dates of the year, on the remote island of Eigg in the inner Hebrides off the west coast of Scotland.

The festival was organised by the Fence Records, who usually hold their Home Game festival in Anstruther in Fife, and featured Fence Collective acts and others on the bill.

King Creosote and The Pictish Trail hosted the event and Gruff Rhys, Django Django and a whole hpst of others played the three day event that ran from Friday to Sunday.

The island has a population of just 70 people, and tickets for the event included camping and a ferry over to the island and tickets for the event sold out months in advance.

The video shows the highlights of the 2012 Away Game festival, also ono Eigg, but gives a flavour of what was for those lucky enough to attend got at the weekend.
