2023 Festival Details Announced

The Mull of Kintyre Music Festival is back for its 30th live year, and we couldn’t be more excited to announce the dates for this years event!

From August 9th to August 13th 2023, music lovers from around the world will come to celebrate the rich history and culture of Scotland’s West Coast music scene.

This year’s festival is set to be bigger and better than ever before, with an incredible lineup of local and international artists.

We are excited to share the news that Skipinnish, one of Scotland’s most beloved folk-rock bands, will be headlining the 2023 festival at the Glen Scotia West Coast Rocks concert.

“Skipinnish has a fantastic reputation for delivering high-energy performances that leave audiences feeling uplifted and inspired — we are incredibly excited about their set at this year’s anniversary festival — their unique blend of traditional Scottish and contemporary folk music is perfectly aligned with the festival’s origins and feels incredibly fitting.”

This year’s festival also sees the return of the main indoor concerts, including the Beinn an Tuirc Gaelic Night, Festival Ceilidh and Kilkerran Survivor’s Night.

Family favourites such as the Festival Parade and open-air Doon the Green are back too, plus an Acoustic Super-Session with a huge selection of musical talent coming together for a lively, impromptu set of tunes that weaves in and out of every genre.

But the festival is not just about the music – it’s also about celebrating the rich friendships, stories and memories created throughout the 30 years.

The ancient history of Kintyre is a magnificent attraction for many. Attendees can explore the local area and discover its many attractions, from famous distilleries to historic buildings, stunning scenery and much more.

The Mull of Kintyre Music Festival has been a beloved tradition for 30 years now, and this year’s event is a celebration of those years, with many of the artists, local residents and ex-pats returning to Campbeltown to celebrate together, incorporating the slogan of this year’s festival:-

’30 years of bringing folk home.’

The 2023 Mull of Kintyre Music Festival is a highlight of the Scottish festival calendar, and this year’s event promises to be one of the best yet.

Don’t miss out on this unforgettable celebration. Please book your tickets today and join us for a weekend of music, culture, community and fun at the Mull of Kintyre Music Festival.
