About Kelburn Garden Party

World Music

You are invited to return to the magical lands of Kelburn for this annual festival - a cultural and artistic safari for the mind, body and soul featuring a unique programme of music, art and entertainment spread throughout our ancient and spell-binding forest glen and gardens.

All ages welcome.


The Kelburn Garden Party is a unique, independent, magical music and arts festival – an annual explosion of colour, creativity and culture in a spectacular setting on Scotland’s West Coast – the grounds and glen around a 13th century painted castle, established in 2009 and with a dedicated following.

The festival is renowned for featuring a high quality and diverse range of musical styles that sits alongside a feast of creative happenings and fun attractions embedded around the site, from interactive art installations, living theatre, pop-up parties to glen walks, waterfall plunge pools, poetry, workshops, cabaret and downright surreal happenings. Kelburn is family-friendly and is well loved by all kids who visit as a fairy-tale playground.

The festival is created each year by the dedicated efforts of the organisers, crew, volunteers, performers and of course you, our friendly campers and dancers. Please see below information and get informed ahead of your Kelburn experience.
