2,100 Artist, 300 Events, 17 Days, 1 Festival.
Beginning in 1994, Celtic Connections was created to fill in the usually quiet period after Christmas. However, throughout the years the festival has blossomed into a celebration of Scottish music and has become a must-see event, attracting tourists from all around the globe. Each year, the festival sees over 120,000 attendants, with last year it drawing in a record amount of 130,000+. The festival contains a diverse range of artists and events ranging from concerts to ceilidhs, from talks to late night jams and workshops, there's truly something for everyone.
The Winter festival runs across various venues in Glasgow including Scotland’s best grassroots venue - King Tut’s Wah Wah Hut. With faces old and new performing at the hallowed venue, this celebration is only getting bigger.
