Mofest and Burnside Brewery teamed up to deliver a three-day beer festival, to help fundraise for the music festival’s 10th anniversary next year.

The event saw the Town Hall transformed into a German beer hall, and was dubbed ‘OkMoberfest’.

Mofest chairman David Paton said: “We had another hugely successful weekend at the OkMoberfest Beer, Music & Food festival and although attendance was down on our March event this did not dampen spirits or affect our fundraising targets for next year’s festival.

“We would like to thank everyone for coming along and taking part and also huge thanks to Gary and Dave at Burnside Brewery for making the event another great one for the town.”

The team behind the music festival is now focusing on preparations for their 10th anniversary.

The festival takes place next year from Friday, May 26, to Sunday, May 28, and bands and artists are now able to apply to the festival for a chance to play at the highly anticipated event.
