Dubbed “Scotland’s most family-friendly music festival”, Solas promises an idyllic countryside weekend, with exciting live music on three stages, debates and discussions on the issues of the day, theatre and dance and a full programme of workshops and activities for children, from tiny tots to teens.
Solas Festival - Scotland’s midsummer festival - has been running since 2009. The all-age, weekend-long celebration of music and the arts is designed to entertain, inspire and challenge.
The Solas programme makes space for challenging debate with activists, writers and thinkers from across the political, cultural and religious spectrum. The festival offers a broad, inclusive, creative and entertaining programme for festival-goers of all ages in a safe environment; everyone is welcome.
Solas Festival is about placing the arts in a wider context, and strives to exhibit a commitment to equality, justice, beauty and hospitality throughout the festival. The Solas aim is to create a space that is tolerant, inclusive and free of prejudice, and for you to have an absolute blast!
Meanwhile, parents can relax in the knowledge that their children are happy and entertained on a safe, contained site. Children under 12 go free to the festival, and camping passes are included in the price of an adult weekend ticket should you want to stay all weekend long.
This year Solas has moved to a brand new site! Solas festiival 2019 will be held in the exciting brand new space at Errol Park making the festival bigger, better and brighter than before! Errol Park is situated between Perth and Dundee and is even more accessible and easy to commute to.
The festival site is about 1hour 15minutes drive from Glasgow and just over an hour from Edinburgh.
The 39 stagecoach bus goes from Perth and Dundee directly to the festival site once an hour: more information here.
