Crowds flock to Oban Live
MORE than 8,000 people flocked to Mossfield stadium in Oban over Friday and Saturday for a hugely successful Oban Live.
The festival-goers were treated to two days of top musical entertainment from the headliners Skerryvore and Skipinnish, backed by big names such as Toploader and Hue and Cry.
But among the highlights for many fans was the set performed by the winner of the Oban Unsigned competition: K9 Kev and Rory O’B – otherwise known as Kevin Irvine and Rory O’Byrne.
The Oban rappers went down a storm on Saturday afternoon.
Oban Live managing director Daniel Gillespie said: ‘The weather was unbelievable and the turnout was phenomenal. We had over 8,000 people from all over the world. K9 Kev and Rory O’B were amazing.’
Oban is alive to the sound of music, fun and new friendships. Oban Live promised to be the biggest and best festival in Argyll - and by all accounts it over achieved in its ambitions. Two days and nights of some of the best Scottish music of all time - chart toppers, old timers, banjo players, not to mention the thrill of having two of our own on stage.
