Connect Music Festival will take place at the Royal Highland Centre near Edinburgh Airport in 2023.

Connect Music Festival will celebrate the best of times, allowing us to reconnect with live music and with each other. We will share the music and our experiences as we live in the moment together. Let’s reconnect with the people and things we love. This is Connect.

Bringing you the very best music from global stars to local heroes, from grassroots to international, we are building a festival for you to discover and enjoy. But Connect Music Festival is so much more than music, it’s wrapped in outstanding experiences; comedy, spoken word, debate, visual arts as well as exceptional food and drink from local talent and big-name Scottish chefs. Open minds and open hearts welcome.
