The Last Waltz? The Darvel Music Festival is celebrating its 15th anniversary and since 2002 we have brought over 260 international, national and local acts to the town. As music loving volunteers we wanted to promote the town and do what we could to regenerate and revitalise the local economy by staging our festival. We are so grateful to all you wonderful people who have attended our concerts and fund raising initiatives year on year but unfortunately a variety of main funding bodies have either cut our grants dramatically or rejected our bids recently. This means that this year will be our final music festival, however, with your help, we hope to keep live music in Darvel from 2017 onwards. Please sign up to our mailing list or keep checking the website and social media to keep up to date with our future plans. See below for our 2017 Appeal. We would like to sincerely thank our monthly business patrons - Thistle du Florist, Noble Dental Laboratories and all our sponsors/ advertisers over the past fifteen years - we hope you will continue your support. Last but not least we would like to acknowledge and thank Lynn (Brown) for having the vision to start the festival back in 2002.
