Big Burns Supper 2020

There are lots of ways you can take part.

Registration is now open for all of the artists who will appear at the 2020 edition of Big Burns Supper which will be staged across the festival, including the Festival Hub, BBS Introducing and BBS Young Performers 

Festival Hub runs Thursday – Sunday at the festival and we are interested in a wide range of acts from across the globe in any genre. We love to hear the unexpected and we love to see a diverse range of community groups on our stages.

BBS Introducing is our new slot for emerging artists from South Scotland or North England who will open for a major artist at the festival by playing a 20 minute warm-up in the Spiegeltent.

BBS Young Performers is part of our new mid-week programme of shows and events which will include young people who are under 16 from a wide range of categories, including traditional music, prose, poetry and choirs.

All artists will be entered into our awards which will take place as part of our Sunday Session Finale 

Each artist from winning category will be invited to play Sunday Session


Selection for the BBS Introducing programme will be made by an independent panel of judges from across the music sector, and with representation from Dumfries & Galloway.

Registration closes on the 31st July 2019 at 23:59
