Across Islay from the 22nd to 30th May 2010, Feis Ile, the Islay Festival of Malt and Music, will be taking place. It was founded by the local people of Islay in 1986 to celebrate the heritage and culture of the isle. Since 2000 Feis Ile has been run in conjunction with the distilleries of Islay and Jura and Port Ellen Maltings. Each distillery has its own open day, putting on special events. Islay has a wealth of musical talent which is very much in evidence at the ceilidhs, while mainland artists are also brought to the island for the festival week.
