This award winning cultural party in the traditional and truly spectacular Scottish town of Oban plays host to thousands of visitors from all over the world who come to see an eclectic line-up of incredible traditional, rock and pop artists in a rural stadium sized setting. The event was crowned winner of Best Cultural Event or Festival at the 2018 Highlands & Islands Tourism Awards.
The Oban Live Fringe extends the party across the whole weekend with live music & special offers on offer across the town.
Oban Live was created following the open-air concert ‘DECADE’ in 2015 – the 10th Anniversary celebration of trad-fusion band Skerryvore that attracted 6,000 people from all over the world to Oban. Such was the reaction and impact of the event, 98% of attendees requested that it became an annual event. From this, OBAN LIVE was formed in 2016 with the aim of showcasing the very best Scottish and International artists as part of both the open-air concert and OBAN LIVE Fringe events.
