Solas, Scotland’s midsummer festival, is an all-age weekend-long celebration of the arts. Designed to entertain, inspire and challenge, artists and audiences come together to collaborate at the beautiful site of The Bield at Blackruthven, Tibbermore in rural Perthshire.

The theme of this year’s festival, Between The Lines, explores the best of culture from across Scotland and around the world, looking at the spaces between cultures, art forms and ideas where creativity flourishes.

Now in its sixth year, Solas’ innovative and eclectic new programme features performances and workshops in music, theatre, dance, literature, visual arts, talks and debates. This year’s lineup includes The Vaselines, Raghu Dixit, Liz Lochhead, Honeyblood, R M Hubbert & Emma Pollock, Janice Galloway, Alasdair Roberts, Denise Mina, Bill Wells‘ National Jazz Trio of Scotland, Blue Rose Code, TuffLove, Prehistoric Friends, Jonnie Common, Hector Bizerk and more to be announced.
