The Orkney Rock Festival brings a weekend of the very best rock, punk and metal music to venues across Kirkwall every year.
Talented local acts are joined by bands and musicians from further afield for the event, now in its 8th year. There is always a packed schedule of free pub gigs for 18s+ in the Torvhaug, the Auld Motorhoose, and the St Ola Hotel, all within a short walk of each other, as well as a main ticketed event at the Neuk in the Albert Hotel for all ages too (under 16s should be accompanied by an adult).
This year's line-up includes Bryttania, The Broken Ravens, the Silver Penguins, and Razormouth.
The event is organised every year by Orkney Live Wire. Keep up to date with previews, band profiles and programme information via the official Facebook page. View the full schedule below.
