Eden Festival Nominated At UK Fest Awards!

While the Eden crew are readying the décor and booking the artists that will grace various stages such as The Great Mountain, The Lost Disco and the infamous Rabbies Tavern for next year’s carnival of colourful fun, the Eden office can with a great amount of pleasure and excitement announce that they’ve been shortlisted for a very prestigious award:

‘Best Family Festival’ at the 18th UK Festival Awards 2023!

Eden Festival director Hannah Gould:

‘We are so proud of everyone who comes and helps make Eden the great festival that it is, we are a community festival run by the community for the community.  We pride ourselves in having something for everyone and offering choices for all. We have focused on becoming even more family friendly in the last couple of years with an impressive kids area with loads going on over the weekend, activities galore and ending in a kids parade!   A massive thank you to all who came and decorated, built, played, educated and partied, and of course voted for us, we couldn’t do it without you all!’


UK Festival Awards: The industry ceremony is due to take place on 5th of December in Manchester.


And in other news:

Eden can finally reveal it’s much anticipated theme for 2024:

Myths & Legends!

The mythical, the magical, folklore, cultural traditions from forgotten eras.

While Eden always brings the party, it can also rely on its festival goers to conjure up and add that extra measure of imaginative sparkle.



Set within the inviting family-friendly vale of Raehills Meadows in Dumfriesshire while retaining its capacity of 5000, this 10 staged festival has over 200 acts performing, covering all musical bases from World to Funk, Classical to Jungle, Acoustic to Dancehall and everything in between.
