FESTIVAL 2021 18 - 23 JUNE
TICKETS ON SALE FRIDAY MAY 28TH
We are delighted to announce our Festival for 2021. This will be the postponed 44th Festival which hopes to add its unique midsummer magic and innovative programming to the recovery of Arts and Culture events in Scotland.
Having had to cancel the 2020 event because of the Covid-19 Pandemic, St Magnus International Festival has worked hard to be able to present performances in June of 2021 and will reflect Orkney, its landscape, seascape, heritage and history whilst bringing the usual, high quality blend of performers together.
Taking place from 18th to 23rd June, the 2021 'live' Festival will use primarily outdoor venues within Orkney’s magical landscape bringing our artists and audiences back together to rediscover the joy of live performance at midsummer. In addition to our live performances we are offering a suite of online content filmed in venues across Orkney during May and June.
Some of the online content will be free and some will be ‘pay to view’. Find full details of this in the 2021 Festival Programme. We are also offering a Single Film price and also a Rover Ticket which gains access to the full online Festival from June 18th for 28 days.
The health and safety of the Festival community is at the centre of our plans for this year’s festival. We are working with the Scottish Government, Orkney Islands Council and other relevant authorities to implement appropriate Covid safety measures. These include shorter performances with no intervals, physical distancing, regular cleaning and contactless ticketing. Full details of all our safety measures and the part we need our audience to play will be issued when you purchase tickets and can be found here.
