Festival Story:

Taking place on the Island Of Tiree, nicknamed ‘The Hawaii Of The North’ due to its beautiful beaches and picturesque surroundings, the festival offers a unique experience that is about much more than just the music. It attracts audiences from all over the UK and Europe to enjoy a weekend of great bands alongside the added fun of camping next to the white sands of Crossapol Bay, taking on the world famous surf at Balevullin beach, enjoying watersports, biking and the many galleries that the Island has to offer.

Says the festival’s Artistic Director Daniel Gillespie; “After performing at festivals worldwide with Skerryvore I kept thinking how amazing it would to have a festival on my home island of Tiree, that would give something back to the locals and also attract new visitors. Fast forward four years and we are now approaching the 4th TMF having achieved three successive sell-outs and the accolade of being awarded Scotland’s Best Small Festival - it really is a dream come true. TMF…(will) showcase Tiree as one of the most stunning locations in the world.”
