The Hebridean Dark Skies Festival is an ambitious annual programme of events led by An Lanntair, including live music, film, visual art, theatre, astronomy talks, and stargazing.

Our 2021 programme will conclude with a weekend of live shows – Stillness by Renzo Spiteri, and Kathryn Joseph and Lumen, on 15 and 16 October. Tickets for both events are on sale now.

Our festival programme for 2022 will also be announced in October!

Campfire Conversations, our five episode podcast in association with the Scotsmanand our 2021 music commission by Renzo Spiteri are both still available to listen to on this page.

The 2021 Hebridean Dark Skies Festival is part-financed by the Scottish Government and the European Community Outer Hebrides Leader 2014-2020 programme, as well as new funding from Caledonian MacBrayne. We would also like to thank our event partners, especially Calanais Visitor Centre, Stornoway Astronomical Society, Gallan Head Community Trust, and Lews Castle College UHI.
