About Tradfest

Edinburgh’s TradFest kick starts the summer season with a feast of music, storytelling, dance, folk drama, folk film, literature & talks, crafts & visual arts in Scotland’s capital. This blaze of contemporary colour is inspired by the traditions of May Day and Beltane, showcasing Celtic arts and cultural traditions with a contemporary spin.

TradFest EdinburghŸ Dùn Èideann is promoted by TRACS (Traditional Arts and Culture Scotland) with partners,co-curators and community groups. These include The Soundhouse Organisation, Edinburgh Folk Club, School of Scottish Studies, Queens Hall, Summerhall, Dance Base, Craft Scotland, the Scots Music Group and of course, a range of solo and group artists.

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.
