Haddstock 2024

Once again, we brought Haddington’s venues and streets to life with music, art and events.

Working with local partners, we crammed as many fantastic artists as we possibly can into one action-packed weekend. Our theme of the Climate Crisis was a common thread woven through author events, film screenings, workshops, exhibitions and live music.    

Battle of the Bands 2024 was another great success, and our Newcomer Stage at the Corn Exchange offered a brilliant opportunity for performers aged 18 or under. Our sold-out headliner gig with Karine Polwart and Gaze is Ghost at the Corn Exchange was stunning.

We look forward to seeing you soon! In the meantime please keep in touch with us on Facebook
