Venues

New venues for the 2013 festival include the city's museum and mark gallery to help mark the festival's 20th year. Kelvingrove will play host to several events, including a huge Burns Night celebration. The festival will also return to the Barrowland Ballroom after a break of several years. Various venues across Glasgow are utilised for Celtic Connections 2013 such as the Main Auditorium in the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall, O2 ABC, The Tron, Òran Mór, The Arches, The Mitchell Theatre, City Halls, Kelvingrove, The Barrowland Ballroom, St Andrews in the Square and festival fans' favourite the Old Fruitmarket will all play host to Celtic Connections events. Many events sell out very quickly and as well as the predictably popular artists, there are also many specialist events.

Highlights

Other highlights to expect include the nightly Celtic Connections Festival Club (for season ticket holders), free schools concerts in the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall, the free Open Stage Sessions at Glasgow's Royal Concert Hall Exhibition Hall, workshops every weekend, ceilidhs, late night sessions, talks, films and dance.

More information will be here when available.
