At the end of July, the playing fields on East Street in the Moray town of Fochabers will be home to the 22nd annual Speyfest, three days of the best in traditional and contemporary Celtic music.

The tented village hosts a variety of seated and standing events including the Friday and Saturday concerts and stomps, the music marathon that is Speyfest Sunday, a craft and food fair with taster sessions and an ecumenical Celtic Kirk service. The event is fully licensed and offers a wide range of hot foods and a variety of drinks from a number of onsite concessions.

2017 Festival Vision - Message from the Chairman

My hope is that Speyfest will continue to encourage and promote the very best in traditional and celtic music. Our aim is to cater for all ages through a varied programme including: children’s entertainment, seated concerts and a range of stomps featuring some of the finest celtic and contemporary bands. We also take pride in offering ‘up and coming’ artistes the opportunity to share the stage with some of the biggest names in the celtic music world. Our Speyfest Young Entertainer Competition, workshop programme, food and drink events and an Ecumenical Kirk Service all contribute to our aim to be inclusive and hopefully provide something for everyone.
