A limited number of early bird tickets will go on sale next week for the award-winning Hebridean Celtic Festival which is gearing up to mark its 20th anniversary in 2015.

The tickets for the internationally acclaimed festival, which was voted Best Event or Festival at the Highlands and Islands Tourism Awards earlier this month, will be available to buy online at http://www.hebceltfest.com/ from 10am on Monday 1 December.

It’s an opportunity for fans to grab a bargain as they are being held at the 2014 prices of £79 for the weekend (£61 for concession and £19 for children under 14) for the main arena events.

The 20th HebCelt, based in Stornoway on Lewis, will be held from 15-18 July 2015.

Musicians from the festival will kick off the 20th anniversary year in style when they will be among Edinburgh’s first foot guests during the capital’s Hogmanay celebrations.

Artists representing HebCelt will perform at a special ceilidh being held as part of a series of free live gigs ‘hidden’ in ten spaces in the Old Town on 1 January.

Next year’s festival aims to build on a successful 2014 event which staged its biggest ever programme of 40 acts, headlined by Big Country, Levellers and Donnie Munro.

A huge influx of music fans from overseas made up the estimated 14,000 strong audience which proved a major economic boost for the islands.

Festival director Caroline Maclennan said: “2014 has been a very rewarding year; the festival was another great success and winning a major award was another massive achievement for the team.

“However, 2015 is a special year for us, and we’re already gearing up to make it the most memorable for our fans yet.

“The advance tickets for the 2015 festival will make an ideal Christmas present for our supporters, who can start looking forward to the summer months ahead.”

About MUSIC NEWS Scotland

MUSIC NEWS Scotland was born 12 years ago when dial up broadband was still around and desktop pc’s ruled. So we did what had been done since 220 AD in China and every month put ink on a printing plate, ran some paper over it and hey presto MNS was published (okay it was a wee bit more involved than that, but the basic principle was the same!) Move on to 2011 with high speed broadband and access to the www everywhere and the future was catching up with us rapidly. The volume of information flowing into MNS HQ was more than our monthly issue could cope with, and more and more Scottish music stories of great value were being spiked (an old press term not a dodgy drink). Reaching our vast number of readers in every conceivable nook and cranny of Scotland has always been a challenge monthly but to do that more often was physically not feasible. So we have doffed oor tam o’ shanter to the future and MNS is now a weekly digital publication, and not only weekly now but twice the number of pages than our old printed friend! Along with our weekly GIGguide and FESTIVALS! supplement we are now producing 72 pages of Scottish music news (and only music news) each and EVERY week:) We remain as true as ever to our launch roots of 8 years ago though - MUSIC NEWS Scotland supports all Scottish bands and performers no matter what style of music you’re involved in. Our aim is to circulate music industry news and to help to raise the profile of musicians and improve communications between genres. To help achieve this copies of MUSIC NEWS Scotland are emailed to key industry contacts throughout the UK. Thank you for your support over the last 8 years and please raise a glass to our digital future with you all. Thanks for your support, The MNS team!
