Set in the stunning hills near Galloway Forest Park lies Scotland’s longest-running greenfield festival, Knockengorroch, which is this year celebrating its 26th year, and has just announced its first wave of Artists for 2024- including Banco de Gaia, Queen Omega, 808 State,  Malin Makes Music, Ríoghnach Connolly and long-term festival favourites Mungo’s Hi Fi.

Welcoming back festival favourite artists alongside exciting new acts from Scotland, the UK, and beyond; Knockengorroch is a hidden gem on the UK festival scene, one that provides a diverse mix of Afro Beat, Dance, Folk, Reggae, Drum and Bass and more, and one that has been bringing together communities in the Carsphairn hills since 1998!

Liz Holmes, Director of Knockengorroch said: "Our line-up presents some of the best music from Scotland and further afield, bringing artists and bands from near and far to make music and tell stories of who they are and where they come from.  All of this is to take part in a beautiful, secluded river valley in the Carsphairn hills, where our family chose to make our home back in the 70s. We invite all curious-minded people who love great music to join us and make it their festival home in 2024...’

Honouring the prolific landscape and history the festival is built upon - and as part of its membership to the A Greener Festival and Music Declares Emergency initiatives -  Knockengorroch not only provides a quality weekend of music but employs a multitude of policies to contribute positively to the environment.

The festival site is a single-use plastic-free zone and has a dedicated waste recycling team. All printed materials use recycled paper, and the festival uses local suppliers and food traders wherever possible. The festival reduces its carbon emissions by running a special shuttle bus (the Knock bus, for which tickets are now on sale) from the central belt to the festival site, and encouraging the use of public transport by placing a higher percentage of the ticket price on vehicles rather than people. 

Through these policies, Knockengorroch brings together open-minded, curious and creative people who share a broad, deep love of music - a warm and welcoming celebration of history and unparalleled sounds set against one of Scotland’s most beautiful natural landscapes.
