2020 Festival

We’re disappointed to announce that, given the current situation, we are unable to hold the Innerleithen Music Festival as planned in August 2020.

We did not want to take this step to cancel this year’s Festival but, regrettably it is unavoidable. The health and safety of the musicians, audiences and volunteers has to come first and this will always be our top priority.

As the situation hopefully eases in the coming months and, as regulations allow, we are hoping to hold a few one-off events including rescheduling the fundraiser concert which we were also forced to cancel.

We are looking forward to returning with a full Innerleithen Music Festival in August 2021.

In the meantime continue to enjoy music wherever you are and whatever you’re doing. Above all please stay safe.

Best wishes,

Team IMF
