Rev­ellers at Sum­mer­fest can get ready to party to the mu­sic of two world­fa­mous acts.

Or­gan­is­ers have se­cured two of the UK’s lead­ing trib­ute acts to per­form at this year’s event on June 17.

Rihanna Reloaded is de­scribed as “the UK’s most ac­cu­rate trib­ute to Bar­ba­dian beauty Rihanna”.

The show, which could in­clude hits such as Um­brella, Don’t Stop the Mu­sic and Work, has been per­formed across the world in­clud­ing in Europe, the Mid­dle East and Asia.

Also per­form­ing will be the Justin Bieber Ex­pe­ri­ence.

Dubbed “the clos­est thing to the real Bieber this side of the At­lantic,” the show is ac­tu­ally based in Glas­gow.

With the Cana­dian singer once again en­joy­ing chart suc­cess, this show is bound to be a hit with po­ten­tial per­for­mances of Baby, Love Your­self and Sorry.

Last year trib­ute acts Lit­tle Fix and One and Only Di­rec­tion wooed the crowds with their tributes to two of the UK’s lead­ing acts.

John Edgar, chair of the Sum­mer­fest or­gan­is­ing com­mit­tee, reck­ons the trib­ute acts add some­thing dif­fer­ent to the event.

He said: “We are over the moon to get them.

“We have got to try to change it up ev­ery year. Peo­ple can get fed up if they don’t see some­thing dif­fer­ent and hope­fully this will bring more peo­ple out. Ev­ery­thing we do is for the whole com­mu­nity.

“The fun rides will be £1 again and we’ll have a buck­ing bronco and bungee for the older kids.

“We’ll also be do­ing a spe­cial arts and crafts.”

The group also found out last week they would re­ceive a £2000 grant from the Ruther­glen and Cam­bus­lang area com­mit­tee.

Other acts con­firmed for Sum­mer­fest 2017 are Bushido Karate, Pauline Grant, Quick­sil­ver Line Dancers, Dance Elite and the Cam­bus­lang Par­ish Church Pipe Band.
