Prices for tickets vary depending on the concert, but fall into three brackets: Member, Non-Member and Concession/Member Concession. In 2022 most Members concert tickets range from £15 - £20, Non-members £18 - £25 and Concessions £13 - £23.  The exception is the shorter Peerie Spang concert targetted at families with young children where ticket prices range from £6 to £10 (which you will not be able to attend unless accompanied by a young person!)

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   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 (28th April 2022) do not need to have concert tickets, as long as they are not occupying a seat during any of the ticketed events. 

All-Inclusive Tickets

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 (UK time) on the 23rd March 2022. Given the high demand, even early members may not get the tickets of their choice. However, there are usually tickets available for concerts when tickets go on sale to the public which will be at 6pm (UK time) on the 28th March 2022.  

Each SFFS Member may only purchase one afternoon concert ticket, one evening concert ticket and one Late concert ticket per festival day.

Online ticket sales will close at 6pm on Tuesday 26th April (to enable the organisers to process all orders before transferring offices from Burns Lane to the Festival Club). If there are any remaining tickets available to purchase they will be available 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.
