PRESS RELEASE

Arran Rock & Blues Festival 2024

A Feast for the Eyes, Ears and Tastebuds

 

On Friday 3rd to Sunday 5th May, Arran Events brings you the 2024 Arran Rock & Blues Festival in Lochranza on the delightful isle of Arran, Scotland’s most southerly island off the west of Scotland.

In a location that boasts world-class wildlife, a medieval castle on the shoreline, an award winning whisky distillery and a stunning mountain backdrop, we present a stellar line-up of rock and blues artists playing in a setting that is typically Scottish and unashamedly beautiful.

Compared by John Beattie, the former rugby union international player and Radio Scotland broadcaster, the festival is family friendly and intimate with two stages and an acoustic stage at the Lochranza Country Inn. 

Our neighbours on festival days, Arran Distillery, have sponsored the second stage –  The Arran Single Malt stage – which will be located in a marquee on the main site – we are sure that many of our festival guests will find time to stroll along the road and visit the Arran distillery to sample their award-winning single malts and other Whiskys.

With fine Arran scran and drink available on site, this festival feast for the senses will delight Music Lovers, Food Lovers, Whisky lovers, Wildlife lovers and lovers of the Scottish island scenery in all its splendour. 

The Festival Lineup

If such a fine line up of festival food and drink were not enough, there is also the small matter of the expertly curated line up of (mainly) Scottish artists to enjoy.

Friday 3rd May 2024

Kicking off on Friday night in the Lochranza Village Hall we can all get into the mood with the John Beattie band and the Sensational Alex Harvey Experience doing a pre-festival gig and setting the pace for the rest of the weekend.

Saturday 4th May & Sunday 5th May 2024

The gates open from 11am on both days and prepare for a treat with sets from: 

Dr Feelguid

Anchor Lane

Andy Taylor Group

The Sharpeez

Tiderays

Long Road Home

Lynsey Dolan Band

Rigid Soul

Little Miss Debby

George Lindsay Band

The Gator

John Beattie Band

Blackleaf 40

Miller Crossain

And many more acoustic performers at the Lochranza Country Inn acoustic stage.

So if you’ve a liking for live music along with fine Scottish food and drink, outrageously beautiful scenery, wonderful wildlife (and you are almost certain to meet some red deer who love the village of Lochranza as much as we do) then you’ve got lots of reasons to visit the 2024 Arran Rock & Blues Festival.
