Live and Local at the innerleithen Music Festival

Live & Local

An essential part of the IMF experience – “Live and Local” at the Vale Club.

The ethos behind Live and Local is to get as many acts as possible on the stage over the three days, to showcase what an outstanding range of musical talent is right here on our doorstep!

In 2016 we had 33 acts, with more than 100 individual musicians.

If you’re interested in performing, then for more information, please click here, and to download the Application Form, click here.  For any other enquiries, please email us at imfliveandlocal@gmail.com

And, away from the music, enjoy the attractions of our beautifully situated small town, including historic Traquair House and the unique Smail’s Printing Works.
