Lineup and Details for Knockengorroch World Ceilidh 2019

Knockengorroch Festivals were born from a love of the land, excellent roots music and celebrating the good times.

We present unparalleled music, arts and workshops in a beautiful mountain riverside meadow.

For us location is key. We are one of the most beautiful and unique festival venues in the UK. Our festival commemorates and celebrates the history and the people that once lived in our valley, in former times an entire village…

We are a festival run by a family, for families, in the very broadest sense of the word.

We support rural regeneration in the Uplands of Scotland, creating local business and enterprise, and attracting visitors to a still surprisingly relatively unexplored region of Scotland, our ‘Hidden Gem’.

We also know how to party. Join us and find out how...
