The historic festival Lochaber Live is set to return this September, thanks to musician Gary Innes. The event was a beloved Highland tradition in the 80s and 90s before taking a break. Innes, a broadcaster from Spean Bridge, has worked to restore the festival with a lineup that represents Scotland’s traditional music scene. The festival will take place in Fort William from 20-22 September and will feature headliners like Tide Lines and Mànran. With a capacity of 2,000 per night and no age restrictions, the all-new Lochaber Live is expected to attract music fans of all ages. Innes expressed pride in rebooting the festival and hopes to bring back an event that locals have fond memories of. Joining the lineup will be several acts with close ties to Lochaber, including Tide Lines, Mànran, Wolfstone, Dàimh, and more. The festival will also feature a free family day on Sunday and will coincide with the Camanachd Cup Final, Scotland’s national shinty final. The return of Lochaber Live has sparked excitement and nostalgia among the community, with many looking forward to the revival of this iconic event.
