Scotland music festivals present us with a cultural treat, from traditional Celtic music to classical and pop, in venues throughout the country.
There are so many fabulous festivals and concerts that take place in the country every year, so I thought it would be nice to have a list of popular music festivals in Scotland, and access to concert tickets all together on one page.
This year’s calendar is as diverse and exciting as always, and all the old favourites are there, including T in the Park, and of course, some good folk festivals. If you appreciate good music, you’re guaranteed to find something here, whatever your taste may be.
