Join the spring migration into the mountains. Incredible music and art in an incredible place.
Climb a hill, watch the stars, re-connect with the land, meet new friends or catch up with old ones. Our natural amphitheatre in the hills, tucked in a river valley 800ft above sea level defies all expectations.
Feel the spirits of the riverside folk rise again at the World Ceilidh.
Advance tickets are available here

Here is some of what others have said about us:

‘Many thanks to the audience and entire crew of the Knockengorroch Festival for creating such a fantastic experience, unique in this age of commercialism and cynicism. Long may it continue.’
Love from Dr Das (Asian Dub Foundation)

‘This is an amazing festival. It’s very wild and happens deep in the mountains. It’s a lot of fun: there are lots of international musicians mixing world music and traditional Scottish folk. It sits on the periphery of being a folk festival and not being a complete hippy grungefest. There’s a beautiful grass-roofed longhouse that has unamplified concerts in there, which is really lovely. And it’s all on the banks of a beautiful river.’ Sam Lee

‘Brilliant is too weak a word to describe this festival , from the people you meet, to the bands it attracts and everyone involved in making it happen. ‘ Richard, festy goer

‘Thank you for another incredible Knock – definitely my favorite festival in the whole wide world!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!’ Saska (Balkanarama)
