Scots Fiddle Festival

Scotland's biggest fiddle event returns to Edinburgh this November.



17th November 2023 - 19th November 2023

The Scots Fiddle Festival has been promoting and sustaining traditional fiddle music since 1996.

Every year, the Festival brings people together from all over the world – both performers and audience members – and continues to inspire thousands of people to enjoy and take part in traditional music.

Join them for a weekend jam-packed with some of the best traditional fiddle music from Scotland and beyond. Enjoy a friendly place to meet and enjoy good music; be it listening, playing, performing – or dancing! The festival takes place at the multi-complex venue, The Pleasance in the city’s Old Town. Lothian Buses services 3, 30 and 31 run regularly to the area. There is no parking available in the Pleasance Courtyard.
