About TradFest

Traditional Culture. Live.

TradFest Edinburgh Dùn Èideann brings Scotland’s arts of tradition into the heart of the capital city, offering events for residents and visitors, old and young, artists and audiences alike.

Everything you expect from a folk festival is here, with a vibrant range of music and song to ensure you’re entertained and inspired nightly.

TradFest is organised and promoted by TRACS with partners, co-curators and community groups. TRACS brings together the work of the Traditional Music Forum, the Scottish Storytelling Forum, and the Traditional Dance Forum of Scotland in collaboration with Scotland’s language organisations.

TradFest is supported by Creative Scotland and the City of Edinburgh Council.
