Scotland’s freshest festival is back! Extending to ten days for the first time, we’ll be revealing a programme jam-packed with music, comedy, literature, film, politics and other seaside shenanigans to suit all ages and tastes, no matter how quirky.

As we’ll be making programming announcements on a regular basis, follow us on social media to keep up with the latest news of who’s on when.  And most importantly, book early to avoid disappointment!  It’s going to be another fantastic year and we look forward to welcoming you personally in August.
