Doune the Rabbit Hole continues to evoke a sense of wonder(land) amidst the glorious ancient oak trees of the Cardross Estate. Its back this summer with an impressive line-up of global acts, national treasures and emerging local talent.

There will be fun workshops for everyone, a huge children’s area, arts, crafts and delicious local food, ciders and craft ales to soak up too. Plus, it’s dog friendly!

DTRH is now in its ninth year and going from strength to strength. It started life in 2010, at a site near Doune (hence the name) and has since been celebrating the very best of Scotland’s independent/DIY arts scene alongside amazing international guests each summer.

Top Five Best Family-Friendly Festivals
The Guardian

“There’s little doubt that Doune the Rabbit Hole is something special; a festival which is family-friendly, extremely well programmed and bearing a strong sense of localism..”
The Scotsman

“Sights like unicorns and dragons handing out bananas, and a bride and groom waltzing round in glow-in-the-dark outfits come as standard. The programming is equally magical, thriving on local grassroots music, and inspired global names.”
The Herald

“Doune the Rabbit Hole brings together people, music and ideas in one idyllic place and enables them to share in a communal experience in which peace, love and understanding lie at its very heart. It is a great wee festival.”

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Doune The Rabbit Hole 2018 are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
