Prices for tickets vary depending on the concert, but fall into three brackets: Member, Non-Member and Concession/Member Concession. In 2018 Members tickets ranged from £12 - £19, Non-members £15 - £24 and Concessions £10 -£17. When the concert listings are available the prices will be listed under each concert..
Concession price tickets are available to seniors (over 65s), children, students and those in receipt of means-tested benefits (proof required). For more information on means-tested benefits, please visit https://www.gov.uk/browse/benefits. For customers with mobility or impairment issues, please contact the Festival organisers in advance and we will be happy to make provisions for access and seating at our concert venues.
Children under the age of 2 on the first day of the Festival (2nd May 2019) do not need to have concert tickets, as long as they are not occupying a seat during any of the ticketed events.
The Shetland Folk Festival do not currently offer all-inclusive tickets for the festival, and have no plans to do so. An individual ticket must be purchased for every concert you wish to attend.
Tickets go on sale to Early Members at 6pm on Monday 18th March. Given the high demand, even early members may not get the tickets of their choice. However, there are usually tickets available for plenty of concerts when tickets go on sale to the public in April. Tickets sales are open to non-members/public from Monday 1st April at 6pm.
Each SFFS Member may only purchase one afternoon concert ticket and one evening concert ticket per festival day.
Online ticket sales will close at 6pm on Monday 29th April (to enable the organisers to process all orders before transferring offices from Burns Lane to the Festival Club). Any remaining tickets will be available to purchase during the festival from the SFFS Shop at the Festival Club during shop opening hours (Thurs, Fri & Sat - 11am - 5pm).
You can pay online using a PayPal account, or by using a Credit/Debit card. You will be emailed a receipt of your purchase, so please make sure you enter your email address correctly.
