On Monday 26 February 2024, the organisers of Zeltik held a press conference at the Opderschmelz cultural centre in Dudelange to announce details of its upcoming Zeltik festival, taking pace now for 28 years, from Thursday 14 to Saturday 16 March in Dudelange.

This year, the line-up, presented by artistic director, John Rech, includes heavyweights of the Celtic music scene from Ireland, Scotland and Brittany in France.
