COVID-19 update: Shetland is now reopen to visitors, as per Scottish government guidelines, but please read our guidance on travelling responsibly.


UnstFest is Britain’s most northerly festival, taking place on Britain’s most northerly island - a festival growing year upon year whilst attracting hundreds of visitors. Viewed as a family festival, there is something for everyone.

Using various venues within Unst, the festival programme consists of over 45 different activities, events and innovative competitions within the space of 8 days.

Roaming the island with a festival feeling leaves both visitors and locals the opportunity to attend quiz nights, kartie races, mystery tours, live music, record attempts, workshops, a family picnic day and the highly anticipated UnstFest carnival.
