Welcome to the official Inverclyde Music Festival website.

The Festival is a registered charity and run by a Committee of volunteers who are involved in preparation for the Festival throughout the year.

The annual Music Festival starts on the last week of January and runs for a fortnight, culminating in a Celebration Concert on the final Saturday evening, featuring a selection of the highlights from the two weeks.

2024 Programme Download

For Festival 2023, we successfully trialled the publication of a digital programme. This meant that 2023’s programme was free of charge, and aligned with our commitment to ensure a more sustainable and environmentally responsible Festival. 

For 2024, we have committed to producing a FREE digital programme, as well as a limited number of printed copies that will be on sale at venues, throughout Festival 2024. 

Reflecting on feedback, the production of printed programmes is to ensure that all members of the Festival community have equal access to information about the 97th Inverclyde Music Festival.
