Our wee festival is probably the smallest and most intimate traditional music festival in Scotland, as the island Village Hall where we hold our headline events has a capacity of about 150.   Many of our festival-goers are regulars: we know them by name, and they're always welcome to have a blether while booking their tickets.

The Festival

The Isle of Gigha Music Festival takes place over the last weekend in June every year. People tend to arrive on the Friday night where there will be informal music sessions and much craic.

During Saturday we run a number of sessions and open mikes, and this year there will be a singing workshop. There is a late afternoon barbecue at The Boathouse, usually with music, followed by our headline evening concert. There are usually sessions in the Hotel on Saturday evening till late.  

Do bring your instruments with you.

We welcome musicians of all abilities to our festival – learn or improve at a workshop, play or sing at a session or open mike.   

There is camping available to all - click here. Booking is advisable for this as many regulars come back year after year!

There is also self catering, B&B and the Hotel – to find out more visit
