Venue & Access

Our main partner venue is Summerhall

Festival Passes

Make sure you don’t miss a single thing from our incredible 2023 programme, by taking advantage of our festival pass – allowing you to access as many events as you want. With a very limited number of passes available, get yours early to avoid missing out.

A pass offers free entry to all events in the scheme priced at £10 or less (the vast majority of the programme) and significantly reduced price entry to a range of our higher priced and more intimate events, including workshops and our solo headline gig from Hamish Hawk.

See our ticketing page for more information.
