Welcome to our 16th edition.
Islay is an enchanting island, but the Lagavulin Islay Jazz Festival adds an extra dimension. High quality music to match the magical places.
We offer a choice of music throughout the weekend. You can mix and match to create your own musical experience and complement the music with a distillery visit, a seafood lunch, a walk on a beach or a round of golf…
Our programme brings Scottish and international musicians together in Islay for the weekend to present music that enjoys a real intimacy and close connection with the festival audience.
We look forward to welcoming old and new friends to the Festival and to raising a glass of Lagavulin™.
