Iconic Scottish beachfront festival Tiree Music Festival, known fondly as TMF, has announced its return from 12th – 14th July 2024, after last year’s event had to be cancelled due to extreme weather.

More than half of ticket holders from the 2023 edition have opted to roll their tickets over and get the chance to experience this special celebration of music in the Inner Hebrides. 

The remaining 45% of tickets will go on sale at 11am on Saturday 3rd February. With the festival capped at an exclusive capacity of just 2,100 and TMF tickets typically selling out within hours, this small batch for 2024 is expected to be snapped up by festival fans in record time.

Set in what has often been dubbed “the Hawaii of the North”, TMF has become known for its world-class line ups, friendly atmosphere, intimate feel and beautiful setting. The festival attracts visitors from across Scotland, the UK, Europe and the world and has contributed £8 million to Tiree’s island economy since its inception in 2010.

Tickets for TMF 2024 will go on sale following a lively night celebrating one of the island’s great components of traditional music and the accordion. Festival organiser Daniel Gillespie is staging A Ceilidh for Gordon, in tribute to Tiree’s late Gordon Connell, as part of this year’s Celtic Connections at the Old Fruitmarket in Glasgow this Friday 2nd February.

Daniel Gillespie, Artistic Director for Tiree Music Festival, said: “It’s been an incredible team effort for our small island festival to regroup after last year’s devastating cancellation and we are so grateful to all those who have chosen to support the festival and roll their tickets over so they can join us on Tiree this summer. 

“Our sights are now firmly set on July and what will be an incredible three days of music and joy that TMF has become known for. I have no doubt that the two-year wait will make it all the sweeter and we look forward to another special sell-out festival.”

TMF is part of Creative Carbon Scotland’s Green Arts Initiative and was shortlisted for Outstanding Cultural Event or Festival of the Year at the Highlands and Islands Thistle Awards last year.

TMF 2024 takes place on the Isle of Tiree between Friday 12 – Sunday 14 July 2024.
