Solas Festival

"Solas Festival is Scotland’s midsummer festival - has been running since 2009. The all-age, weekend-long celebration of music and the arts is designed to entertain, inspire and challenge.
Solas Festival is about placing the arts in a wider context, and we strive to exhibit a commitment to equality, justice, beauty and hospitality throughout the festival. Our aim is to create a space that is tolerant, inclusive and free of prejudice, and for you to have an absolute blast!"

We certainly had a wonderful, fun and engaging time at the festival, which has a truly inclusive atmosphere.
