BO AIRIGH STAGE

Named after the ‘cattle people’ of ancient Gaeldom and celebrating our ancestry, our open-air stage features a host of hand-selected performers whose music travels across the continents and back to Alba.

SHIELING WORLD STAGE

With its own bar serving the infamous ‘Knocktails’ this covered ‘summerhouse’ venue features top live acts throughout the day and live dance acts to play us out till the early hours, as well as being the home of our infamous mega Sunday ceilidh.

THE BERBER

Our homegrown Maddie’s tent is taking a year out and to hold the space, we have The Berber, featuring not one, not two, but three new dance crew takeovers, all running through the Chapel Perilous rig.
