Festival goers will have the chance to get their hands on tickets for next year’s Hebridean Celtic Festival tomorrow as organisers aim to meet growing demand.
Advanced tickets for the 25th annual HebCelt event will be available for purchase from noon, even though the event will not take place until next July.
The sale comes just days after this year’s event drew to a close.
This is the earliest tickets have gone on sale in the history of the event’s 24 years, with day tickets and entry to opening shows, late night activities and community events across the Western Isles scheduled to go on sale at a later date once the programme is complete.
Festival director, Caroline Maclennan, said: “This year’s festival was very successful and hugely enjoyable. It has left a feel-good legacy about the island and people are already asking about 2020.
“Demand for tickets for next year is already very strong and we expect the excitement to grow as we near our 25th festival.
“We, therefore, want to make sure our local and international audience have the best chance to book early.”
More than 30 acts, including headliners KT Tunstall, Tide Lines and The Shires, took to the stage over four days in front of an international audience at the recent instalment.
Festival goer’s praased the event as one of the “best ever” leading to advanced demand for entry to 2020’s showcase.
Package deals for visiting festival-goers, including tickets, travel and accommodation, are again being arranged via the Hebridean Hopscotch website and will be available next week.
