We've decided to take a break with Connect Music Festival in 2024 to take the time to build the next edition of the festival; to make sure it flourishes, evolves, and continues to offer wonderful experiences for all the fans.

As the venue was so well received, is very accessible, and was a delight for those attending the two most recent editions of Connect - as well as for the stunning concerts with The Killers and Paolo Nutini - we will in the meantime continue hosting Edinburgh Summer Sessions at the same location on the Royal Highland Showgrounds.

So far, Catfish and the Bottlemen have been announced, and we will be announcing more artists and shows soon. We hope to deliver a similar experience at these shows which, in the future, will sit alongside further editions of Connect Festival – utilising the grounds and excellent facilities that are quite unique for an outdoor event.
