The Reeling will take place at Rouken Glen Park for its second year on Saturday, June 8 and Sunday, June 9.

The 5,000-capacity festival burst onto the Scottish events scene in June this year, welcoming around 8,000 music fans to Rouken Glen Park for the inaugural two-day event.

Spanning two stages, next year’s event will see the Giffnock park brought to life with exciting musical talent and even more food and drink offerings for all tastes.

The festival will also boast an expanded family area, with daily sessions with Ceilidh Tots, and workshops for budding musicians as well as secret sets from some very special guests.

Glasgow Times:

Folk-electronica powerhouse Niteworks, who closed this year’s Royal National Mòd in style with a sold-out concert, will be taking one of the coveted headline slots.

They will be joined on The Reeling bill by award-winning Celtic outfit Ímar, who return to the event after delighting crowds this year with a secret set on the festival’s second stage, A’ Choille.

Elsewhere, innovative 2024 SAY Award Shortlist piper Brìghde Chaimbeul and acclaimed fiddle player Aidan O’Rourke will make their Reeling debuts. 

Acclaimed folk singer and guitarist Kris Drever and esteemed Gaelic singer Kathleen MacInnes also join the line-up, as well as award-winning folk singer Siobhan Miller and transatlantic folk band The Magpies.

Michael Pellegrotti, festival director of The Reeling, said: “The response to the first edition of The Reeling this year was absolutely incredible, and we’re so excited to be able to build on the feel-good community atmosphere and the successful foundations we created this summer. 

Glasgow Times:

“It feels fantastic to be returning to Rouken Glen Park in 2024 with some more of the most exciting names in Scottish music and beyond. 

“The park proved to be the perfect venue for a new festival and we were blown away by how many people came from near and far – it was another landmark moment for Scotland’s traditional music scene.

“Seeing so many smiling faces in the sunshine was incredibly rewarding, and we’re determined that the second year of The Reeling will be even bigger and better, making for another unforgettable festival weekend.”

Pre-sale tickets for The Reeling mailing list will go live from 8am on Thursday, November 9, and general sale will be available from 8am on Friday, November 10.
