Knockengorroch World Ceilidh - 24-27 May

Knockengorroch Festivals were born from a love of the land, excellent roots music and celebrating the good times. Held in the stunning and accessibly remote setting of the southern upland hills of Dumfries & Galloway, the World Ceilidh presents unparalleled music, arts and workshops in a beautiful mountain riverside meadow. For them, location is key. The festival commemorates and celebrates the history and the people that once lived in that valley, in former times an entire village…

Knochengorroch is a festival run by a family, for families, in the very broadest sense of the word. It supports rural regeneration in the Uplands of Scotland, creating local business and enterprise, and attracting visitors to a still surprisingly relatively unexplored region of Scotland, our ‘Hidden Gem’.

It promotes multi-cultural forms and musical genres, highlighting the connection between roots music and the lands and people that created it. Music from all continents is presented alongside the best in Scottish talent to showcase music in both traditional and contemporary fields.

It is Knockengorroch’s unique remit not only to celebrate cultural diversity and fusion, but to make the music home amongst the hills once more, and give it up to the people.

This year's guests include Anda Union, Inyal, Cera Impala, and many more.
