Stages and Set Times
WinterStorm will touch a number of venues over the Friday, Saturday and Sunday but will be concentrated over three stages in Troon Concert Hall in the middle of the town and adjacent to the beach.
Troon Concert Hall
Troon Concert Hall is situated in the heart of the town centre providing WinterStorm with its main stage venue with a capacity of up to 750, the adjacent Walker Hall and the South Beach Sessions Stage.
The concert hall is a traditional style venue over two floors with the downstairs accommodation up to 500 standing concert goers and upstairs fixed seating for an additional 250. Over the years the Concert Hall has hosted many famous names from all sorts of musical genres and has seen a number of sell out concerts over the years.
But once again we're going to rock it to the foundations!

Stages and Set Times will be made available closer to the event
South Beach Sessions Stage
As last year we are planning to bring back the successful South Beach Sessions overlooking the beach. There may be some changes on how we do this but it will still provide a chill out area and the venue for the after show entertainemnt until 1am subject to licencing application.
Last year the venue was open Friday 4pm til 9pm and Saturday 12noon till 9pm and featured scheduled and ad hoc acoustic performances from guest musicians and provided a quite area to sit, drink, eat or look out over the beach and beyond (no promises!)
From 10pm it became an after show party with classic rock tunes provided until 1am and just the chance of getting an after show beer with some of the artistes too.
Access to the Sessions Room is via the Walker Hall below
The Walker Hall
The hall adjacent to the main concert hall is accessed by linked corridor from the main stage and will provide retail, catering, merchandise and planned workshops throughout the Saturday. This area is unavailable to us on the Friday night.
