Gig at the Gathering 2022 Tickets Launched

2022 Gig at the Gathering tickets on sale now!

Tickets are now on sale for Cowal Gathering’s flagship Friday night Gig at the Gathering (GATG) which is back, bigger and better than ever.

After an enforced two-year break due to the pandemic, this will be the sixth Gig at the Gathering. Having first burst onto the scene in 2015 the GATG has become a permanent fixture to the Gathering weekend and has cemented its reputation for bringing some of Scotland’s best-known bands to Dunoon, as well as showcasing some of the area’s newest talent.

And, Gig at the Gathering fans will be excited to hear this year’s headliners are Hò-rò.

Hò-rò are no strangers to Cowal Gathering, having first played to a Cowal audience in the Ceilidh Tent in 2017. With a line-up featuring bagpipes, border pipes, accordion, fiddle and whistles, together with guitar, keyboards, drums and bodhran, Hò-rò offer something for every music lover.

Joining Hò-rò are Kintyre based band Rhuvaal who played the Cowal Gathering Ceilidh Tent for the first time in 2019 and joined us for Cowal’s Virtual Gathering in 2020.

The line-up is completed by The American Rogues who played at the 2018 GATG and Cowal Ceilidh Tent in 2018, as well as joining us online for Cowal’s Virtual Gathering 2020. With members from Canada and the US, the band are regular on the American Highland Games circuit and won a new legion of Cowal Gathering fans in 2018.

Cowal Gathering Chairman Ronnie is excited to welcome GATG crowds back to Cowal Gathering saying: ‘I’m delighted live events are back for this year and can’t wait to welcome music fans back to this year’s GATG.

‘We’ve got a great line-up which will appeal to music lovers of all ages, and we know this year’s bands are excited about returning to the GATG and playing for our Cowal audience.

‘The GATG is a great night out and I expect tickets will be in high demand. I’d recommend buying early to avoid disappointment.’

Tickets for the Gig - which will take place on Friday, August 26 in the Gathering’s Cowal Music Tent are on sale now for £25 on the Cowal Gathering website at

The gates will open at 6.30pm with the first band due to kick off half an hour later. The event will finish at 11pm.

This year’s Cowal Gathering runs from Thursday 25 to Saturday 27 August.

Website and ticket launch

We have a couple of important pieces of information for you today, please read this post and share it with anyone who you think needs to see it.

Over the last few months, we’ve been working hard behind the scenes to bring Cowal Gathering bang up-to-date, both in preparation for this year’s event but also for what we offer online.

So, with that in mind, we’d like to introduce you to our brand new website, which we’ve launched today and has been made possible through Digital Boost funding.

On here you’ll find all the information you need to make your visit to Cowal Gathering the best yet. If you’re a competitor you’ll be able to register for events as well as find the information you need in our dedicated competitor area. And if you’re a spectator you’ll be able to buy your tickets and plan your day to make sure you don’t miss a thing.

And with that in mind, we are delighted to say tickets for this year’s Cowal Gathering will go on sale at 12.00pm UK time, on WEDNESDAY 13 APRIL 2022.

However, it is very important to remember that people who bought tickets in 2020 are able to carry their tickets forward to this year. This means there are fewer seats available and there are NO Grandstand or Enclosure seats available for Cowal Saturday.
