HebCelt artist programmer Michelle Shields said: "It's with great excitement that we launch our day tickets and share the full details of who's performing when, allowing people to choose which days they'd like to attend the festival, or if they're coming for the weekend, to get a full picture of the programme.

“With so many brilliant artists performing across our three stages, there's a wealth of genres and styles to choose from so we hope there's something each day for everyone.”
