  • conversations with organisers and other TMF stalwarts who make the festival happen
  • unique stories about the Tiree Music Festival

The Tiree Music Festival is one of the world’s most remote festivals. Because of unique transport and accommodation logistics, has a restricted capacity of just 2,100.

The iconic event has had thirteen consecutive sell outs since its inception in 2010. Festival tickets have been flying out the door ever since. This pilot initiative allows the boutique event to extend its reach far beyond the shores of Tiree.

The festival launched a hugely successful live streaming digital event in 2021 in response to the pandemic, called TMF Transmitting Live. This welcomed thousands of viewers from 19 countries.

It’s hoped TMF TV will provide a new sustainable way for audiences near and far to connect with the much-loved Scottish event.

We are very fortunate to achieve annual sell outs with TMF and we always receive requests from people all over the world unable to attend for footage from the weekend.

TMF TV will aim to do just that with highlights of fantastic performances on the stages, as well as exclusive content from behind the scenes that not even those attending on Tiree will be able to see until they get home!

We are proud ambassadors for the Isle of Tiree and putting out a daily digital content package allows us to extend our global reach and showcase a little of what makes this festival special – our music, culture, community and unique place.

The support from EventScotland is critical in letting us get this pilot project off the ground and we plan to build on the scheme for years to come.

We invite people to come with us for a wee virtual peek backstage, sign up, tune in to TMF TV and never miss a beat.
