Now in its 46th year we hope that the Festival enriches the cultural life of Perth, inspires young people to take an interest in the arts, brings tourists to the area, contributes to Scotland’s Summer Festival calendar, brings pleasure, provokes debate and enhances Perth’s profile worldwide. The Festival covers a wide range of artforms from classical music and opera to rock, jazz, folk, comedy and visual art.
