The Eilean Dorcha Festival in Benbecula is set to be greener than ever before.

The music festival organisers say this July’s event will be a truly green experience.

“We are thrilled to announce that we are taking sustainability to the next level by going 100% biodegradable and organic with all our packaging at the food outlets and using plant-based bar glasses,” the popular festival has announced.

“Let’s party with a purpose and reduce our environmental footprint together!”

Among the acts lined up for 2024 is Belgian electro dance outfit Ian Van Dahl. They are joined by the best of Scottish talent, including Tide Lines, returning for the first time since 2017,  and the ever-popular Skerryvore and Mànran.

Also appearing are Cammy Barnes, The Eves, Project Smok, Valtos, Rob Muir, Benbeula’s Beinn Lee and Live Act of the Year, Trail West.

Festival veteran George Bowie is returning, along with newcomers Ultrabeat, Saint PHNX, DJ Sparkos, Ali McFly, and QFX. 

And popping up as before are Alex & Friends and the man of the moment, double Gold Medallist Ruairidh Gray.
