Tickets on sale to Festival Patrons

Tickets for the 36th Orkney Folk Festival are currently on sale to Festival Patrons. General booking will open from 10am on Saturday 28th April.

If you are registered as a Patron, head to the tickets page to purchase.

We would also like to take this opportunity to apologise to the very many patrons who were patiently waiting at 10am on Saturday past, only for it to take a further 45 minutes for sales to go live. We fully appreciate how frustrating it was – and please be assured it was very stressful in the office too. In something of a reassurance, the website did not crash or stall with traffic – although it would have looked that way with a non-moving queue – rather one key part of the system was not switched from its testing phase to have public access, blocking everything from appearing online. Additionally, we were unable to access immediate technical support – and will be taking steps to ensure that neither issue resurfaces again this weekend, for the main release.

Thank you all for your patience and continued support of the festival – and we hope you will agree it was worth it, come late May.
