Welcome to Fèis Ìle.

Welcome to Islay.

Fèis Ìle - The Islay Festival - is a gathering of whisky and Islay fans from across the globe.

In the last week of May, we celebrate Islay, her culture and her spirit, in a ten day event that defines the whisky calendar.

Dates for 2025 are Friday 23rd May to Saturday 31st May inclusive.

FÈIS ÌLE EVENT TICKETS

Fèis Ìle is a unique festival where you don't need a ticket for the Festival. All you need to do is be here!

There are tickets for individual events held by both the Festival Committee, the distilleries and our partners.

Ticketing for 2025 events will be powered by Skiddle.

Why visit Fèis Ìle?

We have a saying on Islay, "Come for the whisky, return for the island".

Whether it's the whisky or the festival atmosphere that draws you here, you are bound to be mesmerised by the combination of tastings, tours, beaches, walks, ceilidhs, sunsets and sunrises.

There truly is something here for everyone, and the feeling of this one big party of people gathered all for the love of the island and its whisky has to be seen to be believed.

About Us

REGISTERED CHARITY

Fèis Ìle is a non-profit organisation. Everything we do is working towards two aims: building a better festival and supporting the culture and community of Islay.

A BETTER FESTIVAL

Every year we work hard to promote Islay culture through our events - both during the festival and throughout the year. Supporting the artists, charities and organisations that support us during the festival.

COMMITTEE

Our Festival Committee comprises of local volunteers supporting everything that the festival does. That means whenever you donate, buy a ticket or visit one of our events you're supporting us in our aims.

FUND RAISING

Putting on our own festival events allows us to raise money which can then be used to support local charities and causes. Everything goes back to supporting Islay.

This year was my first #fèisìle and while we all came out of our love for the world’s finest whisky, it was experiencing humanity at it’s finest that truly stuck a chord with me. Here we are all one.
