A joyous Scottish festival which captivated Highland music fans 30 years ago is being lovingly rebooted thanks to renowned musician, broadcaster, and event organiser Gary Innes. The brains behind the record-breaking and history-making Hoolie in the Hydro event and a Spean Bridge native, Gary wanted to see his hometown festival restored to its former glory in a way that reflected Scotland’s thriving traditional music scene in 2024.

Lochaber Live will take place in Fort William from Friday 20th - Sunday 22nd September 2024, and will see a whole host of musical talent – all with a close connection to the region – play to thousands at a tented venue set out on An Aird shinty field. The festival will share a home and coincide with the staging of the Camanachd Cup Final - Scotland’s coveted national shinty final. The event at the foot of Ben Nevis will comprise ticketed events on the Friday night and Saturday night and a free family day on Sunday.

The line-up includes: Tide Lines, Mànran, Wolfstone, Dàimh, Shooglenifty, Sharon Shannon Trio, Hò-rò, Little Win, the Glenfinnan Ceilidh Band and more, with timings still to be announced. Sunday’s free celebrations will provide a platform for local and emerging talent and invite families to join an afternoon ceilidh.
