Online registration has now closed.

If you would like to be added to the reserve list please see link further down this page.

We have to restrict the maximum number of entrants to 350 but we still have space for spectators. There is no charge to spectate.

This is simply due to the time taken to let everyone compete, hold the awards ceremony and then ensure people can leave the island during ferry operating hours.

For the full competition rules, categories and entrance fees, please see our About section.

The Post-Skim Dance Party

Easdale Island Community Hall where there will be a licensed bar, DJ, and where children are most welcome

Warren McIntyre, our DJ for the Post-Skim Dance Party has a fair musical rap sheet and can usually be found spinning the wheels of steel at various Glasgow hotspots.

Expect a wild eclectic mix of northern soul, dance classics, garage punk, rock & roll, Indie pure pop and of course whatever you the public would like to hear.

Doors 19:30

Return ferries run after the show.


The Pre-Skim Bash in Seil Island Hall

Friday 6th September. Doors 19:00

The Homecoming String Band are an energetic celebration of the huge contribution Scotland has made to American Folk Music. They blend Appalachian and Bluegrass material with Scottish jigs and reels, and a sprinkling of their favourite songs from both the UK and USA folk/roots scene.
