A Festival of Musical Exploration + Discovery
42 bands | Summerhall, The Queen's Hall, King's Hall | 1 day

The Great Eastern is a brand new all-day music festival taking place in Edinburgh.

The latest venture from promoters 432 Presents, in association with Summerhall/Nothing Ever Happens Here and The Queen’s Hall, this newly-announced event follows on from the success of The Great Western Festival, which debuted in Glasgow’s West End in November 2019.

Continuing in the spirit of The Great Western’s theme of musical exploration and discovery, The Great Eastern will host over 40 acts across a variety of unique spaces in the capital – including several rooms in Summerhall as well as The Queen’s Hall and King’s Hall.

A vaccine passport will be required for this event.

Collecting tickets

The Queen's Hall Box Office will be closed. Please go to the courtyard at Summerhall with your ticket, proof of vaccine status or exemption and ID. Lateral flow tests are not currently at substitute and will not give you entry to the event. You will be given a wristband and all other details you need to plan and enjoy the day.
