The event was crowned winner of Best Cultural Event or Festival at the 2018 Highlands & Islands Tourism Awards.
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, OBANLIVE 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 OBANLIVE Fringe events.
