Media & Press

The Festival is now firmly established on the classical music festivals calendar with news of our success spreading further afield each year.

The arts and music press recognise and praise the consistently high standards of both programming and performance, while the general consumer press is attracted to the quirkier aspects of our Festival – our much admired sand sculptures and the unusual concert venues – Scotland’s Secret Bunker, a Hardened Aircraft Shelter, a potato barn, a pitch dark scout hut and a cave to name just a few!
