Event is Mixed up to take it in One Direction
Summerfest will be top of the pops this Saturday with music by two of the UK’s biggest bands set to entertain the crowd.
Organisers revealed this week that tribute acts to One Direction and Little Mix will rock the main stage on Saturday.
Residents will be able to dance along to hits such as Best Song Ever, History, Black Magic and Hair.
Also paying a visit will be the Robert the Bruce Society who will be dressed as knights from the Bruce’s time.
Other new editions include a children’s corner with games and a coconut shy.
Summerfest committee chairman, John Edgar said: “We wanted something a little different this year so we’ve mixed it up a bit.
“We’re looking forward to it and we’re hopeful of a really good turnout because we have got some really good acts this year.
“Hopefully the younger ones come out and fingers crossed the weather is good.”
