Held in the beautiful scenic setting of Ettrick Bay on the west side of the island, ButeFest offers the perfect island festival experience - without the long journey. It is just 50 minutes by car or train from Glasgow followed by a short 35-minute ferry crossing.

Tickets are on sale now, and thousands of festival goers are expected to visit the island which is known as the Jewel of the Clyde due its stunning scenery and relaxed pace of life.

With around 70 acts playing across three stages over the weekend, the festival offers a musical experience for the whole family, alongside craft workshops and stalls with local and Scottish produce.

This year’s line-up includes a host of audience favourites including bagpiping superstars, the Red Hot Chilli Pipers, pop favourites Scouting for Girls, Gaelic folk group Mànran, and indie folk band Elephant Sessions, alongside local and upcoming talent such as feel-good Rothesay favourites The Upbeat Beatdown and Greenock indie talent Fallen Arches, who have performed the festival every year since its inception.

At ButeFest people of all ages can soak up the festival atmosphere, with day and weekend tickets available, and a campsite within walking distance of the main festival arena.

The festival also champions a strong volunteer programme that helps those involved gain valuable life and career experience and new skills, boost their confidence, make new connections and become part of the close-knit ButeFest community. A team of around 100 volunteers will help make ButeFest’s return a reality this year, bringing the fun in the children’s area, sorting out tickets and making stand-out site art with recycled materials.
