Gig in the Goil - New Date Announced

In line with government guidelines surrounding COVID-19, we made the difficult decision to postpone Gig in the Goil 2020. The decision did not come lightly, but as always, the wellbeing of our attendees, guests, employees, suppliers, artists & traders is paramount.

We are however pleased to announce that our fifth birthday event will now take place between Friday 30th October & Sunday 1st November – we are working on a special Halloween-themed event with fancy dress and and a host of surprises, which we can’t wait to share with you in the coming months.

All tickets will be valid for the new date - as always, we thank you for your support and hope to see you later this year for a big fifth birthday celebration. In the meantime, stay at home and take care.

We would like to put on record our gratitude at the cooperation from both the artists and suppliers with regards to moving date so swiftly.

I am booked into onsite (Argyll Holidays) accommodation for GITG, what do I do?
If you have accommodation booked for 1st – 3rd May, then our reservations team will give you a call in the coming weeks to move your booking over to the new date, for no additional charge. Where possible, this will be the same accommodation type, however on the off chance the accommodation isn’t available, our team will provide you with suitable alternatives.

If you cannot make the new date, then we will be happy to move your booking to GITG 2021 (again for no additional charge), or provide you with a full refund on a gift voucher, which can be used 12-months of the year at any of Argyll Holidays parks.

As we are extremely busy, we would kindly ask that you wait for our team to call you regarding accommodation. All our holiday homes are currently ‘blocked out’ for that weekend, with priority bookings for existing guests, so you don’t have to worry about them selling before we contact you.

I have booked offsite (non-Argyll Holidays) accommodation, how am I affected?
If you were booked into local accommodation not operated by Argyll Holidays, then please contact your accommodation provider to discuss further. With all tickets moving over to the new date, you will still be guaranteed entry to the event.

I have a booking at Drimsynie Estate for the new GITG weekend, what do I do?

Alternatively, you are more than welcome to add Gig in the Goil tickets to your booking and enjoy our award-nominated boutique event.
