The Gilchristians also debuted on the Saturday night main stage as the support act.

The Tannahill Weavers made a much welcome return to the festival at the trad concert, five years ago, having performed at the second MOK Fest in 1994.

Eilean Mo Ghoil, music of Arran collective played support with Linzi Murphy opening the concert in Campbeltown Heritage Centre.
