About


Lucky 13. On paper they said it wouldn’t work, a festival in late September in a remote village on the West Coast of Scotland 60 miles from the nearest town, but that was ten years ago. 2017 sees a few changes for our friendly, small (but we thank perfectly formed) festival enter its enters its thirteenth year. Moving to the Pier in the centre of the village, still expect another year of fun regardless of what the weather has to say about it. Another year making new friends, and catching up with old ones. Follow us on social media to see who’s going join the ranks that include Paolo Nutini, Mumford and Sons, Twin Atlantic, The Stranglers and Franz Ferdinand who have graced our little stage. You’ll just have to come and see…
