Festival Description

The Orkney Blues Festival brings together local and national artists across multiple venues for a blistering weekend of blues music, year after year. Well worth coming along! This year’s artists include Chantelle McGregor, Lucy Zirins, Rhythm Zoo and also features the many talented local artists from the Orkney Islands.

The port town of Stromness plays the heart of the festival with four venues within a few minutes walk. More gigs are available at the Standing Stones Hotel in Stenness and at the Gable End Theatre on the island of Hoy. All events are free of charge, with the exception of the Grand Finale on Sunday 25th September at The Stromness Hotel. This event will host all of the Headlining Acts from the festival.
