The Festival started at a public meeting of local musicians, hotel owners, publicans and a mixture of interested music enthusiasts in 1992. The first festival took place in 1993 and was headlined by Capercaillie. The festival committee were overwhelmed with the response and people in Campbeltown quickly took the festival to their hearts.
The Mull of Kintyre has a strong background of successful ceilidh bands, Gaelic choirs, Pipe Bands, Brass Bands and Modern & Highland dancers, and the Festival committee complimented this by introducing international folk/traditional acts from all over the world.
The demand to attend and participate in this vibrant festival which is also in an idyllic setting always astounds this hard working voluntary committee and they are determined to make visitors welcome to Campbeltown for the Mull of Kintyre Music Festival.
