Celtic Connections is set to return to Glasgow from Thursday 18 January to Sunday 4 February 2024 as a host of acts are set to perform in the city.
The dark winter nights can be a bit of a drag as we patiently wait for spring to come, but head out to the festival and light up your nights with an eclectic mix of music.
Glasgow has been recognised as a UNESCO City of Music with Celtic Connections being Europe’s premier folk, roots and world music festival. So, whether you head along to the Royal Concert Hall or The Pavilion Theatre you are sure to be given a warm Glasgow welcome.
