Organisation aims and objectives

EDF is an annual music festival held on Benbecula. It is designed to have a fantastic community atmosphere and to attract and draw back both locals and tourists alike in the future. EDF is also working in conjunction with charitable and educational bodies to identify emerging talent on the island and to give them a platform to perform. There will also be opportunities to learn about digital media, the Gaelic language and to listen to local and visiting musicians.
