The Visit 2018

We are really looking forward to welcoming 29 festival organisers, promoters, agents, manager, programmers, etc. from Australia, New Zealand and China to Scotland for the fifth edition of The Visit. As well as seeing performances by 21 fantastic artists our delegates will get to enjoy fantastic Scottish cuisine, visit Belhaven Brewery and Glenturret Distillery, enjoy the festival atmosphere in Edinburgh, tour Scone Palace and go on a late night ghost tour of Perth.

Our Aim

Our aim is to further the live export opportunities for Scottish based artists working in the genres of folk, traditional, Scots, Gaelic, world and acoustic music. We aim to forge relationships with overseas music trade events and to lobby for showcase opportunities for Scottish based artists.

We also produce The Visit an inward bound mission for the overseas music industry, which targets industry from key territories to visit Scotland to see if our best musicians perform and meet the wider Scottish music industry.
