Nashville comes to Millport!

The Shires shot in Madrid, Spain

Now in its 23rd year, Millport Country Music Festival is proud to welcome Nashville artists and the cream of UK country music to the beautiful Isle of Cumbrae in the Firth of Clyde, a short ferry ride of less than 10 minutes from Largs. The Core Festival will run from Friday evening, 1st September 2017, through the weekend until late on Sunday, featuring many country and tribute bands, together with the Grand Parade on the waterfront at 2pm on Saturday 2nd, line dancing, children’s entertainment and much more.
Under the cover of a huge marquee, situated on a site adjacent to the Core Festival, concerts for 3,000 people will be held on the Saturday and Sunday afternoons/early evenings. Recently signed to Big Machine in Nashville and fresh from the success of their latest album, ‘My Universe’, THE SHIRES will headline the Saturday 2nd September line up.
In his first ever appearance in Scotland, MARK CHESNUTT, with 14 US country No 1s and 23 top 10 singles to his name and a new album ‘Tradition Lives’ just released, will close out the concert element of the festival on Sunday 3rd September. Direct from Nashville will come three rising country artists, DAVID RAY, MORGAN FRAZIER and ADLEY STUMP, to provide support over the weekend.
Adding to the excitement will be the appearance of Glasgow’s own ASHTON LANE, with their full band, on Sunday 3rd September. Patrons will be able to buy ‘Access All Zones’ passes for the entire weekend or choose between the concerts on each day or just enjoy the core festival. A VIP option will also be available for those who want to guarantee a position close to the concert stage.
Advance concert tickets and core festival wristbands are available from .

A representative of the Festival said “We are delighted to be able to take the Millport Country Music Festival to a new level this year. We believe that the line up on offer for the concerts and core festival will establish Millport as the must-go festival destination for country music fans in the UK this summer”
