Fèis Ìle 2022

the countdown is on!

ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THE 2022 ISLAY FESTIVAL.

Welcome to information about Fèis Ìle 2022 - the Islay Festival.

After two years of 'virtual only' hard work and entertainment, Fèis Ìle is back! "Slàinte mhath!!!" we hear you all cry!

We're looking forward to 10 days of music, song, dancing, chatting, meeting friends old and new and perhaps having a wee bit of Islay whisky along the way!

For anyone who hasn't been to the festival before, ready the handy wee guide below. We will keep updating this page with info as soon as we can.
Fèis Ìle 2022

QUICK START GUIDE

If you've not been before, follow these steps to make the best of your festical experience!

1. ACCOMMODATION

A place to stay is the first thing you need to sort - with the island so busy at festival time, it can be hard to find what you need. We're working with our friends at Explore Islay and Jura to  find a way to let you know about any vacancies.

2. TRAVEL

Once you've sorted your accommodation, it's time to think about travel! Calmac release their summer timetable in November/December, so keep checking for updates and get your tickets early. You can also check Loganair if you'll be flying in.

3. TICKETS

There's two main types of events, the official Fèis Ìle events and the ones run by the distilleries.
 - Fèis Ìle event tickets will now be released at the end of January/beginning of February. Keep checking social media for details as we will release them as soon as we possibly can.
 - Distillery events start being released around two months before the festival. We'd recommend you sign up to updates from your favourite distilleries, though we will share information where we can.

3. COME AND HAVE FUN

And that's pretty much it. Be prepared to come and experience the Queen of the Hebrides (that's Islay) in the busiest, most atmosphere packed time of the year - we look forward to seeing you then.
