The annual "Bon Fest" held in Scotland every year, which originated in 2006 by a local non exclusive volunteer only community group DD8 Music, has now grown into a festival that lasts two days and nights drawing attendance from AC/DC fans all over the world. Bon Scott's early roots were in Kirrimeuir and DD8 Music is leading an effort
to have a statue erected there in his honor.
The campaign in support for having the Bon Scott statue approved is underway and further information may be found on the "Bon Scott Statue Kirriemuir
" Facebook page where worldwide AC/DC fans are encouraged to subscribe, as well as the DD8 Music
In 2005, a plaque was laid in Kirriemuir in tribute of Bon.
