Another fantastic Knock fest!
I have been coming to Knock for a long time and have to say it is my favourite place in the world on that weekend! The people, the fantastic music, the land, the vibe. It all adds up to a special place where I can feel part of an ancient world of love and fun and joy that exists in the hills for a few days and then is gone, again, til next year. Thank you so much to everyone that works so hard planning and organising the best fest. It is very much appreciated. X
My son was crew here this year and invited us to come. As it was my birthday weekend I thought it was a great idea! My first time and certainly not my last. Enjoyed everything about the festival. Great weekend with a relaxed atmosphere in a picturesque part of Scotland.
Best kept secret
Truly one of the most wonderful festivals in the land! This really is one of the best kept secrets, when it comes to festivals. A real community feeling where children can run free and be safe, with so much to do for kids and the big kids at hart too! There’s something for every one to enjoy at Knockengorroch and the music is always varied and fun! The weekend always goes to fast and I can’t wait for next year and reuniting with Festival friends!
Stole my heart
Last year, I hopped off a place from NYC, landed in Edinburgh and only hours later was thrown into the magical land of Knockengorroch. I am a traveler and have gone to tons of festivals, but this one truly stole my heart. I remember sitting at a fire after the music ended, early morning sessions, and deeply promising myself that I would make sure to make my way to this festival every year. I left only a couple months later and the magic of Knock remained in my heart.
A year later, after a whirlwind of events that took me all over the world, I thankfully ended up back in the UK just in time for Knock. This year, I returned with my new fiancé, made even more life-long friends, taught a Dub-Time Yoga class with an amazing DJ and new friend (Papa Shanti), danced with people of all ages and types to the best music, swam naked in the river, laughed, played and once again sat by the fire, early morning sessions, and promised myself to make it back next year. Thank you Knockengorrich, you’ve done it again – you have truly created one of the greatest festival experiences around the globe!
Thank you for another incredible Knock – definitely my favorite festival in the whole wide world!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!’
Brilliant is too weak a word
Brilliant is too weak a word to describe this festival, from the people you meet, to the bands it attracts and everyone involved in making it happen.
This is an amazing festival. It’s very wild and happens deep in the mountains. It’s a lot of fun: there are lots of international musicians mixing world music and traditional Scottish folk. It sits on the periphery of being a folk festival and not being a complete hippy grungefest. There’s a beautiful grass-roofed longhouse that has unamplified concerts in there, which is really lovely. And it’s all on the banks of a beautiful river. Sam Lee
Many thanks to the audience and entire crew of the Knockengorroch Festival for creating such a fantastic experience, unique in this age of commercialism and cynicism. Long may it continue.
Such a magical festival :0) Beautiful land, beautiful people.. Thanks for the memories!!!
Best Knock ever
Wow, the choir was incredible! I had such an amazing experience hula hooping to them on the main stage, total magic <3 thanks for the BEST KNOCK EVER XXXXXXX
Been coming 13 years. Always my favourite, and the sun really made it this year! Maybe it’ll like what it saw and come back next year – like me.

THANK YOU for organising such an awesome weekend the sun helped but the people made it- good to be reminded what the world could be like.
Knockengorroch Festival was fantastic! One of the most beautiful festivals I’ve ever played. I’d highly recommend it!
This is the first festival I have been to when I moved to Scotland 8 years ago. My First attendance was 6 years ago. I was delighted as this was and still is a small festival of human size where you can go from the campsite to the main stage in few minutes without any security hassle. The main point is the diversity of people and music at the festival. I had then the pleasure to attend the festival for few years as an artist with Captain Slackship’s Mezzanine Allstars. After the band dismantled, I still attended the festival as so many friends were attending or performing there, a great community. On few occasions some friends flew over to attend the festival. The Highlights: Ska Cubano / Horace Andy / Justin Adams & Juldeh Camara / Vieux Farka Toure / Black Uhuru / The Turbans. Hours of fun in the Sheiling. The Samedia Shebeen was a great addition to the festival few years ago. The Longhouse is the perfect place to relax with some nice acoustics sessions. So it is a unique experience that is highly recommended, plus the scenery is beautiful.
Stone Stacking Nature Balance
C.o.G (church of gloss) We had the best time teaching stonebalancing at knockengorroch, such friendly and enthusiastic festival goers of all ages took part, the music and setting are an absolute delight. Can’t wait to be a part of this truly unique festival next year Love and Peace Long live knockengorroch. 🙂
I just wanted to say a massive thank you for having OneKind at Knockengorroch. Personally, I had a brilliant time and came away from the festival feeling both exhausted and refreshed. I’ve made new friends and I have to say it’s hands down the best festival experience I’ve ever had.
