Fèis Ìle (The Islay Festival)

Fèis Ìle (aka the Islay Festival of Malt and Music) is one of Scotland’s biggest whisky festivals. Each year, starting the last week in May, the festival welcomes whisky, music and travel fans from around the world to come and celebrate with us.

While much of the activity takes place on Islay over a 10-day period, we also host our own Jura Fèis Ìle Day, too. Guests are welcomed to the visitor centre for a unique whisky experience (and, if you’re really lucky the chance to sample our exclusive Fèis Ìle Edition), followed by live music.

We'll be running a free shuttle bus from Feolin ferry port to the distillery throughout the day.

2024 Festival Plans

We're so excited to welcome everyone to Jura for this year's Fèis Ìle on Friday 31st May, with a fun filled day, showcasing our beautiful island and beachside distillery. As well as the ticketed events below, there will be a marquee hosting live music, cocktails and a fun filled day on the field.

Join us as we welcome The Rollin’ Drones for a boogie throughout the day, while enjoying unique and well-loved Jura cocktails created by The Drink Cabinet. We will also be welcoming island businesses to set up on the field to allow you to explore everything Jura has to offer.

On top of this, boat tours exploring Jura's beautiful coastline are on offer in our ticketed experiences! And, as you might expect - there will be plenty of fun (and whisky) for everyone, so even if you miss out on a ticket, make sure you join us for a dram!

The festival is dog friendly, however you will not be able to bring your dog into the distillery building.

If you'd like to know more about Fèis Ìle, make sure you visit the official festival website.
