Moray’s Speyfest is gearing up for its 26th edition, with a fantastic lineup of Scottish music and culture set to thrill visitors from the 21st to the 23rd of July 2023.

First launched in 1995, Speyfest has grown to a 1500-capacity event showcasing the very best Scottish talent including The Elephant Sessions, Skerryvore, Manran and Eddie Reader

The festival has been a staple of the Scottish event calendar for more than two decades, with Speyfest bringing traditional music enthusiasts together from all across Scotland. This year’s edition is set to attract thousands of visitors to the Tented Village on the banks of the River Spey for a weekend of top-tier Scottish music and culture.

The event will feature the very best Scottish talent including Skerryvore, Talisk, and Kinnaris Quintet, Mànran, FARA, and the Norrie MacIver Band. Local talents, the Milne’s High School Fiddlers and the Auld Fochabers Fiddlers, will be returning to the festival once again, alongside an array of exciting new acts.

The festival’s Sunday program will be hosted by the Highland accordionist and BBC broadcaster, Gary Innes, with a range of fun stories and activities for audiences of all ages.

Gary Innes enthused:

“ I can’t wait to return to Speyfest this year to perform with Mànran, as well compering and keeping the energy at full throttle all day Sunday. I have such fond memories of the last time we performed at the festival in 2019 – the crowd and the whole event was fantastic, so we’re excited to see how it’s grown since then and once again be at the heart of it.”
