SSW has firmly established itself as a MECCA for people that love the purist and most UNDERGROUND forms of SOUL and HOUSE MUSIC around, played by the WORLD'S TOP DJS and EMERGING TALENT from around the globe & performances from LEGENDARY LIVE ACTS. It's about the superior sound systems with 30K of PURE BASS in our main arena, it's about the FRIENDLY hotel staff and door stewards, it's about the 7AM BARS, it's about the brilliant geographical position of DUMFRIES that makes it so easy to get to by any mode of transport but most of all IT'S ABOUT THE MUSIC AND THE PEOPLE.

Already hailed as 'THE FRIENDLIEST WEEKENDER IN THE UK' SSW now attracts music lovers from as far away as Japan, South America, USA, the whole of Europe and of course every corner of the UK who come to hear the best in RARE SOUL, MODERN/NORTHERN SOUL, BOOGIE, EDITS, VOCAL, DEEP 'N' JACKIN' HOUSE, FUNK, NU DISKO & experience the UNIQUE ATMOSPHERE of SSW'S FOUR ROOMS.


  • It's been quite a while since I've been to such an intimate and friendly weekender. The energy was really positive, the crowd well up for it, the rooms and sound systems were perfect and the lineup had some of my favorite DJs... What more can you ask for?


  • The venue... Outstanding, intimate soul, jazz-funk, boogie, RnB & house rooms dotted around a beautiful old hotel. The vibe... Amazing. everyone rocking till the break of dawn and the reception we received from the SSW crowd in the main arena was phenomenal. This crowd know how to dance and certainly know how to party, what an experience.


  • The Scottish Soulful Weekender is something of a gathering of the tribes - black music enthusiasts from both sides of the border coming together to enjoy both classic and contemporary tunes. Yogi's puts together some wonderful DJ line-ups and the event is destined to go from strength to strength as more and more people become aware of it.

  • As avid house, soul and disco lovers we have traveled to many of the weekenders all over Europe, SSW surpassed all the other weekenders we have attended. The music was so diverse and played on the crazy sound systems and what a crowd. So many new friends made also.

  • I see the start of something musically beautiful, a new birth for a new energy of black music lovers, young and old. I'm very proud to have been part of such a musical family and we need more of this unity with our music & spirit to truly feel complete, this was music that speaks to your soul.

  • The first SSW was amazing with great live acts, fantastic djs and full of so many happy people. I'm looking forward to more of the same and meeting loads of new friends because this one promises to be off the hook.

  • SSW1 from a musical point of view was pure "Heaven". Outstanding DJs from all genres showcasing their talent, Classic Crossover to Nu Disco to Soulful House. Great live perfomances from Darryl D'Bonneau, Cassio Ware, Kim Weston & finishing off with Gwen Mcrae, something for everyone I would say!
