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.’

Deep Joy brought some ju­bi­la­tion to the event.
