The Hebridean Celtic Music Festival will be celebrating the 18th HebCelt annual festival from July 17-20, 2013.

This Celtic music festival has been named one of the top ten UK summer festivals by music magazine Songlines and is legendary for its party atmosphere which starts at the “Castle Grounds” area of Lews Castle and radiates to surrounding communities.

2013 Hebridean Celtic Music Festival Venue

The Hebridean Music Festival is one of the top Celtic music festivals in Europe, and the HebCelt 2013 venue promises to deliver another award-winning year and has been featured by CNN as a key event in Scotland.

The 2013 HebCelt Festival centers on the large main venue big enough to accommodate 5000 on the scenic grounds of Lews Castle, Stornoway. This castle is a Victorian mock Tudor Castle built in 1849 surrounded by woods.

Along with the main venue, a variety of complementary events are also hosted by community groups on the islands of Lewis and Harris.

Save with a Main Arena Weekend Ticket

The main arena is comprised of two covered-stage venues which are free standing. Save by purchasing a ‘main arena weekend’ ticket which covers acts appearing on the two stages from Thursday to Saturday.

Kids under 5 years of age get into the main arena events for free, but they still have to have a ticket, so even though they don’t have to pay, include them when ordering your tickets.

One ticket does not cover all events, so you have to choose who you want to see. Tickets can be purchased online, but it is important to note they cannot be exchanged, refunded, or returned once they are purchased, so be sure to buy tickets for the events you want to attend.

    I think hearing live local music is key to enjoying and appreciating another culture when traveling! A music festival is a great way to do that and meet locals too.
