Over the last decade, the festival has attracted upwards of 20,000 people to enjoy a celebration of Hebridean music, culture and fun, with the net additional economic impact of visitor spend as a result of TMF 2019 alone estimated to be almost £1.2 million.
With Scotland set to celebrate the Years of Coasts and Waters in 2020, TMF has also launched its tagline for next year’s event, Where the music meets the ocean, celebrating Tiree’s place among Scotland’s unrivalled coastline.
Since its formation TMF has also gone on to win ten national awards including Best Small Event at the Scottish Event Awards (2012, 2013 & 2016), Best Cultural Event at both the Highland & Island Tourism Awards (2013 & 2015) & Scottish Thistle Awards (2013). Event of the Year at the Scots Trad Music Awards (2013) and also thenits first UK award by being crowned the Best Small Event at the UK Event Awards in 2014. Evidence, if ever it was needed, that small can indeed be beautiful.
So whether you’re joining us from the mainland, are island hopping from somewhere nearby or are local to Tiree, we look forward to welcoming you to TMF and the ‘Hawaii of the North’.
