Burnsfest!

The Man, The Music, The Legacy ...

Saturday 5 May 2018

Burnsfest! is a FREE family festival featuring live music, Burns Wine Bar and Beer Garden, A-Coo-Stick Tipi, The Mercat, Performance Pokey, Bairns Bunnet, Burns Fair and more!

JUST ANNOUNCED - HIPSWAY are set to headline Burnsfest 2018! (Rozelle Park, Ayr Sat 5 May, 1-10pm). Breaking onto the scene in the 80s the band are back and very much in demand after a string of sell out shows including Glasgow’s ABC. Hipsway are set to bring their intoxicating blend of pop/rock and soul to Burnsfest for the first time, performing popular songs such as Broken Years, Ask the Lord, Long White Car, and their breakthrough hit Honeythief.

You can view pics from our 2017 event on our Facebook page where you will also receive regular updates on the 2018 event plus be the first to hear live music announcements!

Also running throughout each month of May is our Burnsfringe programme. We hope you can extend your stay to include some of our other events.

We look forward to you joining us at Burnsfest 2018 to celebrate the man, the music, the legacy!
