2024 festival theme announcement

We are delighted to reveal our festival theme for 2024 is SUSTENANCE. Sustenance means nourishment for mind and body, supporting life and health. Food and drink give sustenance, as does music…  

The festival sustains the land at Knockengorroch, enabling humans to live in this unique upland location, a thing becoming rarer in this age.  

This year our Discee Centre for Food, Art and Learning venue, established in 2023 as one of our special 25th year initiatives, will be planted with delicious food and vegetables.  With the help of this latest, robust model of polytunnel we aim to demonstrate how life can be sustained in the hills.  Locally grown food is possible, even in an upland location such as Knockengorroch.  The produce will be tended by volunteers and local community groups throughout the year and dispersed throughout our community come harvest time.  During the festival it will also host local talks and demonstrations about the landscape and biodiversity of the area and local food production.

In honour of our 2024 theme we’re asking all festy goers to GET FRUITY (or vegetably if preferred)! Cherries, bananas, apples and pears and everything else in abundance – all are invited to get those creative juices flowing!
