Mull of Kintyre Music Festival’s (MOKFest) Saturday and Sunday night Victoria Hall concerts will showcase a feast of local and visiting bands in what is expected to be Scotland’s first live festival of 2021.

The Glen Scotia West Coast Rocks Concert on Saturday August 21 headlines with folk rockers Tide Lines.

Since forming in 2016, the band has played to sold-out concerts and festivals and this will be their first festival performance in more than a year.

Supporting Tide Lines at the four-hour concert will be Beinn Lee, an exciting six-piece band from Uist, making their debut at the festival.

Opening the concert will be the hugely popular Rhuvaal who will play with their new six-piece line-up.

The band performed a unique set for last year’s virtual event on Davaar Island and it will be great to hear them, Tide Lines and Beinn Lee live on stage again.

The Survivors Night concert on Sunday August 22 once again features a fantastic line-up of bands and musicians including Campbeltown’s super-group Slainte Davaar Allstars, who last year performed an award-winning broadcast of David Bowie’s Space Oddity to the International Space Station.

The Allstars’ set includes a mixture of tracks they have played since their debut in 2012 and some new tracks, so it is not to be missed.

A host of other bands including Rhuvaal, we.R.soul, Alex, Archie and Arran McAllister will also perform, with more bands to be confirmed.

Tickets for the event are on sale from AP Taylors, Main Street, Campbeltown, and online at www.ticketweb.co.uk.
