Those who ‘survived’ the 25th Mull of Kintyre Music Festival celebrated in style.

Traditionally, Survivors’ Night, the final concert of the music festival, brings the festivities to an end with performances from mainly local artists.

The Wee Toon Tellers, who played at the first ever Survivors’ Night in Dillon’s Bar in 1993, made a welcome return this year.

Many other regular artists made an appearance on the night, including Kintyre Schools Pipe Band, the Twisted Melons, Deep Joy, Gullion, Gilchristians, Il Brasso and Session A83, with Jamie G as the MC.

A MOK Fest spokesperson said: ‘The Survivors’ Night brought the weekend to a close with some spectacular performances from the bands and musicians.’
