Internationally renowned as Europe’s largest winter music festival, annually welcoming over 2,000 artists to take part in over 300 events, Celtic Connections was set to celebrate its 28th incarnation in 2021. However, as with the rest of the world, plans have been turned on their head as the global pandemic continues to take hold.
Loathed to sit back and watch as Covid-19 inflicts chaos on the lives and livelihoods of musicians, technical crews, venue staff and indeed the whole creative supply chain, the Celtic Connections team, along with their funding supporters Glasgow Life, Creative Scotland and the Scottish Government, have put together a digital-first festival in response to the current situation and the effect this has on the way music fans must now consume live music and entertainment.
Celtic Connections 2021, in its digital format, will present concerts using an online platform every night between Friday 15 January – Tuesday 2 February 2021. Top quality performances will be available to view online across the 19 days with some of the biggest names on the Scottish music scene and beyond appearing on screens across the world as part of the festival.
