2021 Live Music Returns...
It has been an awful time for us all over the past twelve months and while it may not be the most important issue, we have undoubtedly missed our live music fix and will never take for granted the benefits it brings to us ever again.
We may not be out of this yet but we have no alternative but to at least plan for a return of our events to Troon Concert Hall for 2021.
South Beach Summer Sessions 2021
It is with some regret but probably not much of a surprise that we have decided to postpone the South Beach Summer Sessions weekender that was planned for the 30th of July through to the 1st of August 2021 and will now be rescheduling it to the same weekend in 2022 - Friday 29th, Saturday 30th and Sunday 31st July to be accurate.
Whilst the situation is undoubtedly improving there are still too many variables facing us at the moment and combined with the issues of insurance and the delays in finding out whether we have any funding support the decision has been made to postpone and reschedule all of the bands to future dates.
Hopefully it will be third time lucky for this summer weekend in Troon and we can finally get what will become an annual weekender by the beach off the ground.
Full refunds will be available either from Skiddle or directly from ourselves if they were purchased from our own store. These will be available from 1st of June to give us time to set up the new dates.
The alternative is that you can rollover your tickets at the current prices to the rescheduled dates and this is where the new news comes in!
Stiff LIttle Fingers | Moved from July 31st 2021 to Wednesday 16th March 2022
From the Jam | Moved from Saturday July 30th 2021 to Friday 29th July 2022

September Sessions | Troon Live
We have held back the public announcements on these dates until we had a better idea of the progress of opening up and we now have more confidence that these events can and will take place. The following events will all go on sale on the 8th of June at 10am but please note that ONLY 400 tickets will be amde available at this point for each night. Any additional tickets will only be released as and when we can.

Matinee Gig | LIttle Mix Magic
For the younger audience we are delighted to welcome back the girls of Little Mix Magic for the Saturday afternoon slot - last time they sold out their South Beach Sessions date and the noise of the audience was deafening! It's great to have something in place already for the younger audicme and theere will be more to follow.
Donnie Munro plus support from JJ Gilmour
Donnie Munro last appeared in Troon with Skerryvore at a memorable night for [email protected] We are delighted that he'll be returning with his acoustic band and a mix of his own and RunRig classics. He'll be supported by the wonderful JJ Gilmour with his accoutic band too. More inforamtion to follow on additional support.
Sunday 12th September 2021
Big Country and The Skids
This is the thrid date for this gig having been postponed from November 2020 and then to August 2020 - we are hopeful that the gig will now take place to close our first September Sessions | Troon Live weekend with some of the most inlfuential sounds of the 70s and 80s to come out of Scotland.
WinterStorm is already approaching sold out status again for 2021 with the line up rolling over from 2020's postponed event. There are some interesting plans for this year's event to add to the already strong weekend and we look forward to unveiling more through the year.
Christmas Party Nights 2021
One of the biggest regrets for last year was the loss of the Christmas Party Nights which we established in 2019 so keep the dates of Friday 17th and Saturday 18th December 2021 free for a wee pre Christmas celebration. We've got two great party nights lined up and ready for going on sale at the end of April with two amazing tributes complete with DJ and a host of seventies and eighties party night tunes.
There are two ticket options available for these nights with a limited number of Dinner and Ticket packages available complete with private bar and DJ before and after the main concert and late licence. The other ticket is just for the main concert hall with live band and DJ. The bar as ever will be provided by the team at The Harbour Bar.
We will be coming back again with a bang for 2021 with the same mix of fine dining and excellent live music party nights.
About South Beach Sessions
What started in 2014 as a pop up venue at the South Beach Hotel in Troon has developed into a semi regular promotion of live music events in Ayrshire featuring some wonderful musicians from around the globe and of all genres appearing up close and personal in the seaside town of Troon and venues across the county.
South Beach Sessions have promoted more than sixty events over the past few years from the tiniest acoustic events through to the WinterStorm Rock weekend and mainstream acts such as Hue and Cry, Stiff Little Fingers, Big Country and others.
