Dougie MacLean

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.

You can now buy Weekend Passes with or without the Dougie MacLean concert at the revised price of:

Weekend Pass including Dougie MacLean
£45.00 (Over 25's) / £35.00 (Over 65's and 12-25's) / £18.00 (Under 12's)

Weekend Pass excluding Dougie MacLean
£35.00 (Over 25's) / £30.00 (Over 65's and 12-25's) / £Free (Under 12's)

The Weekend Pass gives you admission to all ticketed concert events, excluding workshops, and is terrific value for money.

Confirmed so far for 2019....

Girvan’s guest list for 2019 is very typical of ‘Girvan’ and promises lots of great musical experiences from people firmly rooted in the tradition. It's a terrific festival, now into it's 44th year which is an outstanding achievement, and a line-up this year that has something for everyone.

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.
