National Festival venues and various locations across the City Centre
There's lots to see and do beyond the main stages of National Festival. Make the most of your session, day, or week!
Right across the week get involved with pop-up performances on stages across the City Centre, as well as loads of different workshops and hands-on sessions led by professional musicians and leading arts organisations.
There really is something for everyone!
