Change to Weekend Pass pricing

Due to the unprecedented demand we've had for Dougie MacLean tickets, the closing concert at this year's festival on Sunday 14th July 2019, we've introduced new Weekend Pass ticket options as it's clear that Dougie's concert will sell out well in advance. Tickets are still available though.

6th annual music festival

The 6th annual Newton Stewart & Minnigaff Traditional Music & Dance Festival will take place over 12th-14th July 2019 and, after another outstanding programme of events in 2018 which saw us hosting Scottish Highland Dancing competitions and, as ever, some of the biggest names in traditional music, it looks set to be another packed programme and is really living up to it's reputation as one of the best rural arts festivals in Dumfries & Galloway.
