The 27th Mull of Kintyre Music Festival (MOK Fest) is now well under way.

The annual festival was kick-started with ticketed concerts in the Victoria Hall and Campbeltown Heritage Centre featuring Mànran, Dougie MacLean, Chris Stout and Catriona McKay, Heron Valley, Slainte Davaar Allstars and many more.

Tomorrow’s (Saturday) activities start at 11.30am with the new MOK Fest 2019 ‘best dressed ship’ event at Campbeltown Marina. MOK Fest has teamed up with Sailing and Cruising Northern Ireland which will have up to 15 boats providing a fantastic nautical backdrop for the event in the harbour.

At 12.30pm Kintyre Schools Pipe Band will perform at the head of the quay before marching up the street to Well Close to open the MOK Fest Up the Close event which features live music from a new hope?, Gubbed and we.R.soul, a dance performance from Dance Legacy and children’s entertainment from Funky Chicken. There will also be the usual community groups, craft and food stalls.

Tickets are still available for most concerts from AP Taylor and will be available at the doors of some of the events.

Look out for the MOK Fest Snapchat filter which can be accessed in the town centre. Revellers can follow the MOK Fest on its Instagram and Facebook accounts. For more information email
