Year 24


Rave legends The Time Frequency headlined the MOK Fest’s main concert in the Victoria Hall in 2016, with DJ Rankin and local outfit Gullion also on the bill for a night of techno dance music that shook the Vic to its core. Both the Traditional and Mitchell’s Glengyle Dalriada Connections concerts had a real international feel, with Wendy MacIsaac flying in from Cape Breton and Jean-Mitchell Veillon also flying in, but this time from Brittany in France with Finlay MacDonald, Gillian Frame and Jenn Butterworth, Ciaran Mulholland and Norman MacKinnon also performing.

The Festival Ceilidh featured Ceol an Aire making their debut along with another first-time act Hollow Mountain String Band, playing to a sell-out audience. Slainte Davaar Allstars performed the closing set of the event at Survivors Night with Kintyre Schools Pipe Band, Deep Joy, Il Brasso and a host of local bands and musicians on the bill.

This year the Saturday Session moved to the Argyll Arms Hotel, and the event various additional events, including the regular Heritage Trail walks, whisky tours, and architectural and art exhibitions.
