Thursday 19th May – Sunday 22nd May 2022
We are delighted you are able to come and help us make this festival happen. Thank you for being part of it!
The earlier you can send us information and images about your act the better the publicity we are able to offer. If you have any releases or special events that you want us to mention just let us know or post a link on our Facebook page and we will share it.
Likewise we would ask whether you could shout about your gig at Knockengorroch festival. Add us to your website and other online platforms. Please like our Facebook page, attend the event and tag us on Facebook and Twitter in any posts that you do about the event. Creating a mutual buzz helps us both!
Below the form is important information about your gig at Knockengorroch. We recommend downloading it and saving it as a separate document.
We need the following information from you as soon as possible please and at the very latest by Friday 1st April.
Please submit by Friday 25th February at the latest.
We will send you a code to use to obtain your passes through our ticket service provider Skiddle. You will be allocated a festival pass for each person in each act. Due to the intimate size of the festival site and the high proportion of acts playing, I’m afraid we cannot offer guest passes. Please complete the form above to ensure no complications at artist check in.
Arriving at the World Ceilidh Festival
Once you arrive on the site please go directly to the festival HQ/office to check-in. We will confirm your performance time and show you to your venue.
Please aim to arrive on site at least 3 hours prior to your slot to allow enough time to find your stage, check in with stage manager and get your kit into place.
For live acts only
Please be at the correct stage 1 hour before your slot with your equipment for line-check. If you are late for line-check this will eat into your set time.
We have a short-term equipment store for use if you wish prior to your slot, but we recommend you keep your equipment locked in your vehicle when possible.
Cars and Vans
All artists will be allocated free vehicle parking for the event, but please only bring essential vehicles on site and vehicle share as much as possible. If we feel there are too many vehicles per band size, we may have to charge for some of them as we are a small site and do have limited capacity. Thank you.
We will be providing on each stage standard backline inclusive of drum-kit, bass amp, guitar amp, microphones etc. Please note: drummers performing in the Shieling must bring their own breakables and all drummers are encouraged to bring their own snares and cymbals. All other instruments are to be provided by the performer.
Please make sure you email us your tech spec and stage plan along with this form if you have not already done so.
Unless otherwise agreed, accommodation is camping. There will be a designated artists camping area if you wish to use it. There are B&Bs in neighbouring villages, please check tourist information if you are interested in these.
We expect all artists to have their own insurance for equipment.
Knockengorroch festival will be adhering to restrictions that are in place in May and we will be asking all of our artists and festival attendees to do so. As these are impossible to predict we are unable to say for certain what will be required. As the restrictions stand at the current time (Feb 2022), Knockengorroch as a 3000 capacity festival is not subject to vaccine certificates. We will however be asking all artists to take a lateral flow test before journeying to the site. Anyone contracting COVID during the event will be required to leave the site.
Please bring warm and waterproof clothes and footwear. Be prepared for a weekend in the Scottish hills!
