Venue, 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 850, the adjacent Walker Hall featuring the South Beach Sessions Stage and the Beach Bar featuring the after show party stage.
The concert hall is a traditional style venue over two floors with the downstairs accommodation up to 600 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.

Stages and Set Times will be made available closer to the event
South Beach Sessions Stage
The South Beach Sessions stage will be open from 10am on the Saturday morning with the Breakfast Sessions - live acoustic music and bacon butties. How good does it get!
As last year we are planning to bring back the successful South Beach Sessions to feature some of the best local talent and provide a chill out area in which to rest the senses! The music will go on for twelve hours from ten til ten and is FREE to access for non ticket holders all day.
The Beach Bar
We won't be attending licencing until September but we have applied for a late licence in what will this year be known as the Beach Bar! I know not very creative but during the day it provides the mosts wonderful views of the beach and the view to the Isle of Arran. We will have a bar and stage in there and at 10pm on both nights it will transform to the after show party til late.
The after show party has still to be planned out but with classic rock tunes provided until 1am (possibly 2am) and just the chance of getting an after show beer with some of the artistes too.
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 unfortunately.
- Live music stage
- Brownings the Bakers Cafe area - featuring the WinterStorm Pie!
- Vinyl Fair - to be confirmed
- Charity and Retail Stalls
There are separate Cloakroom facilities designed into the venue.
These will remain open until midnight on both nights and a charge of £1 per item or a donation will be applied with funds going directly to the charity and againTroon RNLI have kindly agreed to run this for 2017.
