Winner of Best Cultural Event or Festival at the 2018 Highlands and Islands Tourism Awards.
Held at the famous shinty ground Mossfield Stadium Oban Live is the biggest live music event in the region of Argyll & Bute.
The event was created following the open-air concert ‘Decade’ in 2015 – the 10th Anniversary celebration of trad-fusion band Skerryvore that attracted 6000 people from all over the world to Oban.
