What's on this weekend

5 Mins

You don't have to go far to find fun, culture and a bit of rock and roll around these parts. From Glasgow to Edinburgh, Leith to Kinross, it's a jam-packed weekend of festivals for all ages and the ultimate throwback gig...

The Rolling Stones No Filter Tour, 09 

The ultimate rock 'n' roll legends, The Stones return to Edinburgh for their No Filter Tour at Murrayfield on 09 June. If it's a still night across the capital, you might hear some classic tunes wafting your way or why not snap up some last minute tickets because it could really be the last chance you get (we know, we thought that last time too).

Tickets available at rollingstones.com.

Wildhood Festival, 09 - 10

All activities are included in the ticket price and, located at Tullibole Castle near Kinross, it's less than an hour's drive from Edinburgh.
