Mull Music Festival 2018

The next Mull Music Festival will be held over one of the last two weekends in April 2018.

This is not an official festival page so up-to-date information can be obtained from the individual venues - find their contact details on this page. Venue and lineup details appear here once available - if you represent a venue, please let us know what they are.

The 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!

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

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. The house is next door to the Mishnish Hotel and was once owned by the Mishnish's former proprietor, the well-known accordionist Bobby Macleod, who popularised the music festival.
