These twice-yearly celtic/roots/world music festivals have been running in the hills of Scotland's Southern Uplands since 1998.

Throughout the day and through to the night, the central Bo Airie stage hosts a wide range of performances, including high profile, internationally recognised artists alongside emerging and local performers. The second smaller, Shieling World stage is home to music and dance in a more intimate setting, doubling up at night after the main stage has closed into a enclosed dance space.

For the full line-up, click here. Plus DJs TROUBLE - on location, The General (MANGA), and Mungo’s Hi Fi Sound System.

The festival also offers open mic, an acoustic village with sessions thoughout the weekend, storytelling, street theatre, fire spectaculars. Tai-chi and other workshops are free to weekend ticket holders, and there's a solar-powered cinema, children's marquee and procession, puppet shows, global shopping, food, real Scottish ales, plus camping.

NEWS: This year, due to last year's mud damage, Hairth o' Knokrach WILL NOT be held by the banks of the River Ae on Craigshiels meadow, near the Forest of Ae. Instead the festival will be sited in a greenfields meadow in Galloway Forest Park, within the high glen of Talnotry.

TICKETS Day tickets are available. Kids under 11 get in FREE.
