Tiree Fes­ti­val

The Oban Times - - Front Page -

THE SOLD- OUT Tiree Mu­sic Fes­ti­val (TMF) saw fans gather on the He­bridean is­land from Fri­day un­til Sun­day, July 15 to 17, for an event fea­tur­ing the best in Scot­tish and folk mu­sic.

Flook and Sk­er­ryvore opened the fes­ti­val ahead of week­end head­lin­ers in­clud­ing the Lev­ellers, Skip­in­nish and Trail West.

TMF takes place on the white sand banks of Cross­apol beach and is a firm favourite with fam­i­lies and mu­sic fans alike.

The is­land sees its pop­u­la­tion treble over the three- day fes­ti­val, with rev­ellers com­ing from far and wide, in­clud­ing Amer­ica, South Korea and Switzer­land.

Daniel Gille­spie, fes­ti­val di­rec­tor, said: ‘This is our sev­enth TMF and there has been an in­cred­i­ble at­mos­phere on-site with our fes­ti­val-go­ers en­joy­ing the mu­sic, food and fam­ily-friendly ac­tiv­i­ties on of­fer.

‘The Scot­tish weather didn’t dampen rev­ellers' spir­its as they en­joyed crack­ing sets from the likes of the Red Hot Chilli Pipers, Sharon Shan­non, Bre­abach and Trail West over the three days.

‘ We would like to thank all of our spon­sors – in­clud­ing Cairn Cap­i­tal, CalMac and FlyBe – and at­ten­dees from near and far for help­ing to make Tiree Mu­sic Fes­ti­val such a suc­cess.’
