Islay Jazz Festival 2024 Update

Islay Jazz Festival 2024 Update

The 26th Lagavulin Islay Jazz Festival is just around the corner!

Our preparations are in full swing, and we know that for many of you this is the case too. It's time to get the ducks in line for visiting the magical Hebridean Isle for the popular and longstanding Lagavulin Islay Jazz Festival!

The festival dates this year are 20 - 22 September 2024

Producing a programme of music in pop-up venues all over the island is no easy task, but very much made possible in collaboration with our partners, the Islay Arts Association 🙌

Together we are finalising the pieces of the 2024 programme. We are very excited with how things are taking shape, but we do have a bit of work to do before we can spill the beans on the full programme.

In the meantime here is a timeline of dates for the diary:

From 22 July 2024

Festival Pass announced and on sale. The Festival Pass will be valid for a full-suite of concerts at a discounted price, priority booking and more, and is the best way to lock in for an immersive festival experience. There will only be a limited number of passes available, so be sure to keep an eye on your emails for an announcement of when sales open.

Local Islay residents will also be eligible for priority booking and discounts for the festival. Sign-ups for this will also open from 22 July.

The musicians visiting the island will also be gradually announced during this period. As an example, for the musicians who visited in 2023 see here.

1 - 8 August 2024

We announce the full programme of concerts and events. The priority booking window opens for festival pass holders and Islay residents.
