Back for their 7th year, Audio Soup promises to bring a bit of sunshine and magic to the Scottish summer in the Scottish Borders, and the team never fails to stir up the very best in musical marvels. Expect a tasty mash of homegrown talent and talents from further afield over five electric, eclectic and eccentric stages. A veritable plethora of audio-visual experience, Soup strives to offer something for everybodys taste regardless of age or gender.

Audio Soup is always ecstatic to welcome the family, so don’t forget that under-12’s go free! Be sure to check out their workshop space where they will be bringing back many of the much-beloved family favourites from previous years to keep your lil ones entertained so that you can sneak in a cheeky Thistly Cross. Audio Soup are also very proud to continuously support the efforts of local young people in the arts, as well as unsigned acts more widely and generally just all round legends so come along to show your support!


Audio Soup Festival will be held at Harehead Road, Cranshaws, TD11 3SL. Full Details of how to get there can be found on the travel page.

The main gate to the festival site and box office will be open until 11pm every night. It will open on the Saturday and Sunday at 9am.

There will be disabled toilets on site. Unfortunately, the entire site will just be grass (albeit mostly flat and cut) so please take this into account before you arrive. We will reserve space for disabled parking and camping at the closest and most convenient points possible.

Unfortunately due to the wildlife surrounding our lovely new site (lots of sheep for starters) we are unable to allow dogs to the festival this year. Many apologies to our four-legged friends!

CAMPING General Camping, Disabled Camping and Family Camping are included in the ticket price. If you wish to bring a campervan or caravan to the festival, you must purchase a ticket on arrival.
