PRESENTING PARTNER FESTIVALS

Over 35 presenting partner festivals have signed on to present Scottish artists at their events in 2020 – some continuing a tradition of presenting the best in Scots, Gaelic and Celtic music, and some discovering the depth and richness of Scotland’s musical heritage for the first time. You’ll find a presenting partner festival in every state and territory in Australia – visit their websites to find out more about their programmes for 2020 and where Scotland is involved. New festival programmes are released every month, so keep an ear to the ground if your closest one hasn’t announced their Scottish guests, yet.
