A pop-up nightclub, which markets itself as the world's "most remote" music venue, is opening up on a small island in the Inner Hebrides of Scotland this year.

Detour Discotheque is styled like a '70s New York City nightclub, and will this year make its home on the Isle of Coll, sharing it with the island's 200 inhabitants, setting up shop at An Cridhe, Coll's community centre.

The club will run at An Cridhe for two nights only, on 22nd and 23rd September. Those who wish to attend from outside of Coll will be able to reach the island by taking the scenic CalMac ferry from Oban.

Each night will have a capacity of 250 people, with DJs and bands set to play under a spinning mirror ball. Auntie Flo, Free Love and Coll's own Cosmic Ceilidh Band are lined up to play at the parties so far.

Tickets to attend the club are on sale now, priced at £80 – there is a significant discount for Coll's residents, however. They can be purchased via Detour Discotheque's website.

"Detour Discotheque is back for another spellbinding weekend," organiser Jonny Ensall said in a statement. "The event is a wormhole that opens in unexpected places around planet Earth, and this year that cosmic phenomenon is happening on Coll – a tiny Scottish island famous for its star-filled skies.

"It's all about community – bringing disco-lovers and Coll residents together for two nights of unabashed joy, amid plenty of stunning nature and with the Milky Way to admire above us."

Detour Discotheque previously hosted events in the remote Icelandic fishing village of Þingeyri in April 2022.
