Knockengorroch Festival was born from a love of the land, excellent roots music and celebrating the good times.
We present unparalleled music, arts and workshops in a beautiful mountain riverside meadow in South West Scotland.
For us location is key. We believe we are one of the most beautiful and unique festival venues in the UK. Our festival commemorates and celebrates the history and the people that once lived in our valley, in former times an entire village…
We are a festival run by a family, for families, in the very broadest sense of the word.
We support rural regeneration in the Uplands of Scotland, creating local business and enterprise, and attracting visitors to a still surprisingly relatively unexplored region of Scotland, our ‘Hidden Gem’.

Knockengorroch also facilitates other music projects such as Oran Bagraidh, a multi lingual artist residency exploring the indigenous languages of Scotland and in particular, Galloway Gaelic.

Knockengorroch is soon to release a brand new album. Sounds of Knockengorroch will be released 6 December and features artists from the Knockengorroch 2020 line-up including new collaborations created during lockdown.
