Festival Description

First Class World Music in the remote hill-scapes of Galloway — a WOMAD in the hills —Knockengorroch Festivals offer an exhilarating festival experience unparalleled across the UK. Set in a natural amphitheatre, the World Ceilidh celebrates the multi-cultural commonality of roots music, welcoming the People to the Land, and the Music to the Hills! Over the three days the ‘World Ceilidh’, and ‘The Hairth’ in September, present some of the most current sounds on the world and traditional music circuit, from the most purist to the most experimental, bringing top quality acts to a secluded and beautiful corner of Scotland.
