Connect Music Festival

Connect Festival

Connect Music Festival originally took place in 2007 and 2008 at Inverary Castle and was revived in 2022 at Royal Highland Centre, Edinburgh. The 2022 version brought an entirely new festival experience featuring the best in leftfield talent from grassroots through to award-winning headliners including The Chemical Brothers, The National, IDLES and had sustainability and wellness at the heart of every decision made. With The Speakeasy hosting talks on sustainability, comedians and spoken word, the Rest and Be Thankful hosting meditation, sound baths, cold water therapy and a Chefs Table featuring some of the best produce in Scotland, Connect Festival is one of the most unique festivals on the Scottish scene.
