Theme for 2018

In 2018 the theme for the festival will be “Drift”, exploring internationalism, journeys, change and cultural fusion. Artists, musicians and performers will engage with this theme creatively.

Our music programme will welcome world music pioneers, as well as international dance and storytelling. In recent years Solas has hosted contributors from Syria, Gaza, Somalia, Yemen, Finland, Sweden, Canada, Italy and the USA.

We think that it is more important than ever to look outwards, to find what we have in common with those around the world and close to home, and so we hope to build on these connections and help Solas reach out further.
