Tickets are available online and in person, both at the event and in a temporary pop-up box office. However, we highly recommend booking online as events are expected to sell-out and there is no separate allocation for in-person box office sales, nor is there a difference in price between online or in person. All prices shown are inclusive of booking engine fees.


In Person:
FBTS Pop-up Box Office, c/o North Berwick Library, 13 School Road, North Berwick, EH39 4JU.

Thursday 20th June – Thursday 1st August (library opening hours only).

There will also be a box office open between 10am and 10pm daily at the Harbour during the festival (2-11 August).

Tickets are sent as an e-ticket, which can be presented on your mobile device at the door. Alternatively, print the e-ticket at home and bring it with you. The price for buying online or at the box office is the same.

Late night trains and buses calling all stations and stops to Edinburgh will be running – please consult ScotRail and East Lothian Buses timetables for full details.

NB: ScotRail online timetables may not show the special midnight service from North Berwick to Edinburgh that runs on each day of the festival.
