Mull Music Festival 2020

About the Mull Music Festival

The 2020 Mull Music Festival takes place over the weekend of Thursday 23rd to Sunday 26th April.

The Mull Music Festival is a weekend of Scottish music featuring folk-rock bands, fiddle, accordion, dance and ceilidh bands. It usually takes place over one of the last weekends in April, in several hotel and bar venues in Tobermory. The events aren't ticketted, and most are very crowded!

Artist lineup details are posted on this page once available elsewhere online.

Back Brae Lodge is booked out for the Music Festival. There is no waiting list so to receive an email message as soon as any Mull Music Festival weekend becomes available, sign up for news.

There is also an unrelated classical music festival called Mendelssohn On Mull which takes place in July each year.
