Dumfries & Galloway Arts Festival supports people in some of the region’s most rural areas to experience world class performing arts. We bring the best local and national artists to our communities; we invest in our performing artists; introduce our young people to live performance and engage people of all ages, from all walks of life, with our imaginative programme.

For our 11 Day Festival this year running from 23rd May – 2nd June 2024, we have a packed programme of world class theatre, music, dance, comedy and spoken word for audiences to enjoy across our beautiful region – our full programme will be announced on Wednesday 20th March 2024

From supporting our incredible local performing artists to bringing national artists to perform in villages and towns across the region, we know that we have something for everyone to enjoy.

We are the only region wide performing arts organisation in Dumfries & Galloway and our work incorporates three key strands: our 10 Day Festival, our Year-Round programme of events and art industry support and our youth project, UP YER AIRTS.
