Knockengorroch World Ceilidh is the seminal outdoor roots music festival in Scotland. Located deep in the Southern Uplands in a river valley on Knockengorroch farm, the area was recently awarded Dark Skies status - one of the best places on the planet to see the stars... and see the stars you will...

The musical line-up is a melting pot of world, folk, fusion and dub reggae with electronica, hip-hop and drum n bass thrown in for good measure - both live and DJed.

As well as music, cabaret, spoken word, comedy and dance all take place across five venues, from the mighty open air stage, turf roofed and built from locally sourced timber, to a Berber tent, to the Celtic Longhouse venue, a willow wattled re-creation of an iron age dwelling.  

There is a sauna, dedicated children's activities, workshops in arts, crafts, heritage and environmental subjects, fire shows, flash mobs, real ales, 'knocktails' and food stalls.  Knockengorroch even has its own ale the 'Knock Ale' and its own chocolate 'chocengorroch'. 

The Knockengorroch World Ceilidh festival site was a populated village in ancient times and the festival re-populates the valley for the four days of the event.  The festival's motif of a highland cow is a reminder of the ancient beasts that the people in times gone depended on and worshipped.

Run by a family who either live or grew up at Knockengorroch, and presided over by the family's cows who witness the festival fun from the safe confines of the opposite river bank. Knockengorroch World Ceilidh 2016 is set to be a whole world unto itself and one you may not want to leave.

History of Knockengorroch World Ceilidh

Knockengorroch World Ceilidh began one mid-summer 1998, the year after an international 'rainbow gathering' took place on the land, and since then have moved from strength to strength without losing any of our original character.

Knockengorroch now attracts people from all over Scotland, the UK, and beyond, and have acted as an inspiration for several other festivals in Dumfries and Galloway, and further afield.

Originally held at Knockengorroch Farm in Galloway, festivals have also been held in the Forest of Ae near Dumfries, and Talnotry near Newton Stewart. All locations have a breath-taking beauty and 'upland' position in common, and it is this focus that Knockengorroch Festivals continue to promote.
