Scottish band Niteworks have announced details of their final gig after 17 years of playing together.

The folk/electronica band was formed in Skye by school friends Allan MacDonald, Christopher Nicolson, Innes Strachan and Ruairidh Graham in 2007.

They have gone on to perform all across the UK and Europe as well as performing at the Belladrum music festival, and most recently headlined Scottish music festival The Reeling.

The band’s music has also been played during Edinburgh’s Hogmanay fireworks display.

After 17 years together, the band announced in November 2023 that they would be disbanding with a “heavy heart”.

It has now been revealed that the band will be playing four final shows, including the Belladrum festival near Inverness in July, before performing at Eden Court, Inverness, and The Garage, London in November.

The Gaelic band will bow out with a performance at Glasgow’s O2 Academy on November 16.

Allan MacDonald of Niteworks said: “We’re delighted to be playing the O2 Academy in Glasgow to bring the Niteworks story to a close.

“This will be the biggest show we have done ourselves, and with the Glasgow music scene having been a big part of our story, we couldn’t think of anywhere better to do it. It’s going to be an emotional one for sure.”
