Pipefest 2020 – Edinburgh

Pipe bands and individual pipers and drummers are once more invited to Edinburgh, 16th August – to take part in Pipefest 2020. Once again this will be a fundraising event and players will have the opportunity via Justgiving to raise funds for charity. The tune-list, route and support events will follow. Meanwhile please hold the date.

Mark the date in your diary:
Pipefest 2020 – Sunday 16th August 2020.

This year, there will be a small registration fee (£3.75) per player, to cover street closure costs, first-aid, insurance and stewarding. It is with much deliberation that this cost has been added. Most importantly we want Pipefest to be a sustainable event. Even by running on a volunteer basis, there are still costs that need to be met. For transparency event costs and revenue will be published on this site. Our aim is to move forward on a stronger footing.

Over the years, many players who have taken part have also enjoyed participating in or visiting the Worlds or Piping Live in Glasgow or taking in a night at the Royal Military Edinburgh Tattoo. The date has been chosen so that visiting players could potentially do or visit more events.

If you haven’t already and are interested in taking part, please join our newsletter. Updates will also be posted and registration links will also be published on this page.

We hope you can join us in 2020!
