Loss or Injury
The festival organisers (Knockengorroch Community Interest Company) will not be held liable for any loss, injury or damage to persons or property sustained whilst attending the World Ceilidh, including accessing and exiting the site between the A713 and the festival site except in respect of death, injury and damage to property resulting from the promoter’s negligence. In the case of damage to the ticket holder’s property caused by the organiser’s negligence, the organiser’s liability shall be limited to the reasonable cost or either repairing or replacing such property subject to fair wear and tear.

Dog owners agree to keep their dogs on a lead at all times, to clear up any dog mess immediately and dispose of it properly. Dog mess bags are available from the office, but we expect dog owners to bring their own bags. There is adjacent to the festival site a non festival forestry area where dogs can be let off the leash, up beyond the bank opposite the Shieling tent entrance. Uncooperative dog owners may be asked to leave the site or take their dog off site. We believe we may be the only Scottish music festival allowing dogs. With our dog owners cooperation, we can keep it this way!
In accordance with Police Scotland’s zero tolerance drugs policy, all illegal drugs and ‘legal highs’ are prohibited on the festival site.
We can’t wait for our next instalment of festival magic and mayhem in the Knockengorroch hills! Just to let you know of a few things in advance of the adventure…
Knockengorroch is a unique site. It is located deep in the Southern Uplands of Scotland. There are no shops, ATMs, petrol stations or urban ‘civilization’ for 10 miles. Please bear this in mind when you pack!
As well as your craziest and most fun festy wear, bring warm and waterproof clothing plus sunscreen! Also any food and provisions you would need for camping for four days in the hills, bearing in mind we have quite a few well priced caterers on site.
Please look after yourself and those around you!
