Sk­er­ryvore launches Oban Live 2018

The Oban Times - - NEWS -

SK­ER­RYVORE might be used to tour­ing the world, but last Wed­nes­day the band made their way round var­i­ous venues in Oban to launch next year’s Oban Live event.

The boys vis­ited Oban Air­port, Tesco Oban, Bun Sgoil Achadh na Creige/Rock­field Pri­mary School, CalMac’s Oban ferry ter­mi­nal and the town’s train sta­tion.

They ended the day with a ticket give­away, in which five pairs of tick­ets and two VIP tick­ets were given to ran­dom win­ners.

This came as an ex­clu­sive ticket of­fer was fea­tured in last week’s Oban Times.

Read­ers were able to make the most of a 48-hour lo­cal ticket of­fer, which sold out in record time, sav­ing 36 per cent on full­price tick­ets.

Speak­ing on Wed­nes­day night, Sk­er­ryvore ac­cor­dion player and or­gan­iser of Oban Live Daniel Gille­spie said: ‘It’s great to get round the town again and visit all the busi­nesses.

‘Hope­fully, we will have an­other suc­cess­ful event. It’s been amaz­ing so far and we have been lucky with the weather. A big thing for us is to de­velop Moss­field and hold more events.’

Dis­counted early bird tick­ets for Ar­gyll’s largest live mu­sic event have sold out in record break­ing time.

Pauline Clif­ford from Oban Live said: ‘De­tails on the next batch of ticket sales will be re­leased very soon. Stay tuned for this and ex­cit­ing an­nounce­ments about Oban Live 2018 artists.

‘The Oban Live team had a fan­tas­tic day tour­ing around Oban with Sk­er­ryvore on Novem­ber 1 which fin­ished off with the launch of Oban Live 2018 in Sta­tion Square. Thanks to ev­ery­one who made it along and well done to all the win­ners of the first tick­ets.’
