Runrig to headline Hebridean Celtic Festival

Hebcelt bring Runrig ‘The Story’ tour to Island festival

Scottish rock legends Runrig will make the Gaelic heartland part of their 2016 UK tour by headlining next year’s Hebridean Celtic Festival. The band will close the 21st HebCelt’s ‘coming of age’ celebrations on Saturday, 16 July during the nationwide tour in support of their 14th - and last - studio album, The Story, which is released in January. 

It will be Runrig’s fourth appearance at HebCelt, where the internationally-renowned band are also honoured in the Hall of Fame for their outstanding contribution to Celtic music.

“Of all the festivals we have played there is no doubt that HebCelt stands alone in the band’s experience. It is the festival that is closest to the music and the people that inspired us. It is very much home ground.”
Guitarist and founder member Rory Macdonald

“Runrig are quite rightly regarded as musical legends, not just in Scotland but across the globe. We are so excited they will be joining us next year – their only gig in the Highlands and Islands - during their nationwide tour. Their rise has been mirrored by the increase in interest in the Gaelic language and they are seen as local heroes in these parts. We know their huge following in the islands will be thrilled that they will be back with us in 2016. We will shortly be announcing some other superb acts and look forward to presenting a diverse and innovative programme for 2016 to give our audience around the world plenty to look forward to.”
HebCelt director Caroline Maclennan

A limited number of early bird weekend tickets for the festival will be available to buy online from the Festival Website from Friday (27th November). Prices range from £83 (£64 for concessions and £20 for children under 14 with under 5s going free) for the main arena events.

Hebridean Celtic Festival takes place at Stornoway in the Outer Hebrides, Scotland and will run from Wednesday 13th to Saturday 16th of July 2016.
