Crowds flock to Oban Live

The Oban Times - - News -

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.’
