I am a musician and will be in Orkney for the festival, is there any way that I can perform?

Other than the Song Clubs, all of the festival’s ticketed events will only feature billed artistes. At the Song Club the stage is offered to floor singers, much like a folk club, however this is the only such event at our festival.

We do, however, operate an Open Stage competition for musicians and singers on the Saturday afternoon. Due to a tight schedule, however, entry is not guaranteed and must be applied for before the event itself. More information on this will be posted around March/April.

We also have a number of sessions, and singarounds, where taking part is actively encouraged,
