The Doonhame Festival is scheduled to return to the grounds of The Crichton in Dumfries on Friday 30th and Saturday 31st  July 2021.

The 2020 event was cancelled due to COVID-19 restrictions, and although 2020 has brought great disappointment to festival goers, the Doonhame team have been working hard to ensure that 2021 comes back with a bang!

They are delighted to announce that the Kaiser Chiefs will be closing the festival on the Saturday. The 2021 line up also sees the addition of Toploader and the introduction of on site camping.

Sandy Sweetman, Joint Festival Director said: “We were really excited about the line up we had for 2020 and the support shown for the festival throughout this challenging year has been excepional. To recognise this support we are determined to make 2021 even better and were blown away when the Kaiser Chiefs agreed to play at our “wee” festival in Dumfries”.

Kaiser Chiefs’, Simon Rix added; “We are excited to be headlining the Doonhame Festival in Dumfries next year. Playing to our fans in Scotland is always a highlight for us and we look forward to seeing them all in 2021”.

The Feeling, Bad Manners, Hayseed Dixie, Skerryvore, I Am A Raver, Ibiza Mania and over 40 other acts have all confirmed their availability to perform in 2021.

“On-site camping will also be introduced in 2021 for tents and live-in vehicles as an add on. Camping spaces are limited so we would recommend booking early. Early Bird Tickets for the festival have proved to be very popular, and have now sold out, but and a time-limited Tier 1 ticket offer is now on sale.” states Sandy.

“Our priority is always public safety.  The limited capacity and plenty of open air space will allow for physical distancing and we will ensure that all other COVID -19 safety measures are in place throughout the weekend. We will also roll over any tickets if the festival cannot go ahead due to further the COVID-19 restrictions”.
