Scots Fiddle Festival

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



17th November - 19th November

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.

Tickets for the 2023 Scots Fiddle Festival go on sale on Sunday 17 September. Further information can be found on the Scots Fiddle Festival website.
