==========

Galloway's celtic/roots/world music festival returns to the hills of Scotland's Southern Uplands. The festival held at Knockengorroch Farm, Carsphairn, Kirkcudbrightshire, in Scotland will feature musicians from around the world heading for the far flung location.

Line-up

Announced acts for the new dates include Afro Celt Sound System, Shooglenifty, Kel Assouf, The Poozies, Moishe's Bagel, Cut Capers, The Inexplicables, Mungo's Hi Fi Sound System, Plump DJs, Calum Easter, and more. There's more to be announced.

For the details as available please see the line-up page.

Other entertainment

Expect a silent disco; a Celtic fire show spectacular, cabaret, comedy, cocktails, real ale, global food, stalls, camping, dance, heritage and arts workshops, a healing area, session villages, open fires, star gazing, showers, and more. There is family and disabled camping also available. For children, the Kids' Marquee runs creative activities, culminating in a childrens' procession.

Bo Airigh

The main stage, the Bo Airigh, is named after the sacred cattle that were once worshipped in the valley, the Shieling dance tent is another reference to the land's prior use and the Celtic longhouse, once a common site in the hills, is revived again with rousing fiddles, sitar and kora.
