5th annual Newton Stewart & Minnigaff Traditional Music & Dance Festival

Delighted to announce our new partnership with LIVE IT and, with it, a brand new ticket booking system for the festival. Unlike previous years you'll now receive an e-ticket immediately on purchase which you can print, or bring on a mobile device, to be redeemed for the relevant wristband/s.

You can bring your printed e-ticket/s, or your confirmation e-mail on a mobile device, to your chosen event/s or visit the Festival Box Office prior to any event to have them scanned and the relevant wristband/s issued.

Secure payment processing is now with Stripe, as opposed to PayPal, and we accept all major debit/credit cards.

Weekend passes are on sale now and if you use the discount code EARLYBIRD18 at checkout you'll receive a £5.00 discount on every weekend pass you purchase, available until March 2018.

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.
