About Perform in Dumfries

Welcome to ‘Perform in Dumfries’ with Dumfries & District Music Festival which is affiliated to The British & International Federation of Festivals.

Our Festival is competitive and currently encompasses four disciplines, namely Music, Speech, Accordion & Fiddle and Scottish Country Dancing.

These events currently take place over four weekends from the end of February through March in local venues and provide a platform for the many talented youngsters and adults we have in the region and beyond.

The competitors are given positive feedback about their performance from well-qualified adjudicators, together with pointers and encouragement on how to improve their skills.

The Festival is organised entirely by a friendly team of volunteers and anyone wishing to help in any way is warmly invited to get in touch with a member of Committee.

As a non-profit making organisation we are grateful for the ongoing support of Dumfries Education Authority as well as corporate and individual sponsors.

Dumfries and District Music Festival Associate aims advance the education of the public in the Arts, and in particular the Arts of Music, Speech and Dance by providing a platform for amateur performance for both young people and adults. Please click here for our safeguarding policy.
