About FLY Open Air 2022

Unfortunately, 2022's FLY Open Air event has been cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances. The organisers have released the following statement on Friday 9th September 2022:


"Unfortunately we have been forced to cancel FLY Open Air due to Operation Unicorn in Edinburgh. 


While we are disheartened with this news we also understand and respect the instruction from Police Scotland & Public Safety given the Queen’s passing. 


To explain the situation to our customers: The Queen will be brought to Edinburgh tomorrow for 4 days of mourning with Operation Unicorn seeing large parts of the city closed. This includes - The Ross Bandstand & Kingstables Road which is our access route for building the event & now no longer possible to use. 


All ticket holders will be able to request a refund in due course as we work through the situation with our insurers having already begun the site build. Details on this will be posted next week. 


After having battled the pandemic it seems things don’t get any easier for events but we’ll be back stronger and united in May. 



NB our afterhours events next weekend will still go ahead & feature a number of acts from the festival playing both Cabaret Voltaire & The Caves on Friday, Saturday & Sunday"
