19 Jan - 5 Feb 2023

Festival update 18 January 2022

Live performances from Monday 24 January and digital passes on sale Friday 21 January

We warmly welcome today’s confirmation that live indoor performances can proceed without the capacity limits in Scotland from Monday 24 January.

We have more than 50 shows still programmed between then and Sunday 6 February which we cannot wait to stage for you. These exciting and eclectic performances are going to be truly unforgettable and are made all the more special given the recent uncertainty.

Tickets for these in-person shows are on sale now and we would encourage everyone who is able to support the festival to join us over the next three weeks for some magical live music once again.

We can also now confirm festival passes for our digital programme will be on sale from 3pm, Friday 21 January.

Priced at £25, a digital ticket will give people access to at least 12 hours of exclusive filmed live content from across the festival for a three-week period starting Wednesday 26th January. Celtic Rovers will also be able to take advantage of their 10% discount. More detail about artists included in the online programme will be revealed when tickets go on sale.

We also look forward to staging the first of our live filmed sessions at Glasgow’s Royal Concert Hall this Thursday 20 January as our Opening Night, ‘Neath the Gloamin’ Star, comes to life in front of an intimate audience of 200 people.

The safety of audiences, artists and suppliers is central to all of our plans and we are continually working with the Scottish Government and venues to ensure we put all necessary public health measures in place for Celtic Connections 2022.
