Rutherglen Reformer - - News - Staff re­porter

Summerfest will once again be top of the pops this Satur­day with mu­sic of two of the world’s big­gest singers set to en­ter­tain the crowd.

Or­gan­is­ers re­vealed this week that trib­ute acts to Ri­hanna and Justin Bieber will rock the main stage on Satur­day.

Res­i­dents will be able to dance along to hits such Work, Um­brella, We found Love and Only Girl when Ri­hanna Reloaded per­forms.

Pay­ing homage to the Bar­ba­dian beauty, Ri­hanna Reloaded is de­scribed as the most ac­cu­rate trib­ute to the pop star.

The show, fea­tur­ing songs from singer’s seven al­bums, will in­clude pro­fes­sion­als and be­gin at 12.50pm.

It will be fol­lowed by the Justin Bieber Ex­pe­ri­ence, the world big­gest male star of the mo­ment.

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

Cam­bus­lang teens will be able to join in on tunes such as Sorry, Love Your­self, What Do You Mean and Baby when the Bieber trib­ute act per­forms at 1.30pm.

Also pay­ing a visit to the stage are mu­si­cians Scott Wal­lace and Big Ste­vie Grassie.

Other edi­tions to this year’s event in­clude a chil­dren’s corner with games and a co­conut shy, whilst the Buck­ing bronco is also mak­ing a re­turn

Summerfest com­mit­tee chair­man, John Edgar said: “Ri­hanna Reloaded and Justin Bieber will be there, but we are also do­ing a magic show for the kids and a spe­cially fun area. There’s a guy do­ing gi­ant bub­bles and there will be free face paint­ing, toys and fresh fruit.

“We got fund­ing from the Lot­tery for the chil­dren’s arts and crafts area so that’s some­thing dif­fer­ent as well.”

All ac­tiv­i­ties at Summerfest cost £1 ex­cept for the chil­dren’s play area which will cost £2. The £2 fee en­sures chil­dren can en­ter the play area as many times as they want through­out the day.

Early weather re­ports sug­gest a de­cent day, with sunny spells, how­ever that could change.

Nine com­mu­nity awards will be dished out on the day.

The full sched­ule is: • 10am - Bushido Karate • 10.15am - Cam­bus­lang Parish Pipes and Drums • 10.35am - Quick­sil­ver Line Dancers • 10.55am - MG Dancers • 11.20am - Pauline Grant • 12.10pm - Open­ing cer­e­mony and com­mu­nity awards • 12.50pm - Ri­hanna Reloaded • 1.35pm - The Justin Bieber Ex­pe­ri­ence • 2.10pm - Scott Wal­lace & Big Ste­vie Grassie • 3.15pm - Dance Elite Dancers • 4pm - Sharon Nimmo

John added: “We hope ev­ery­one will turn out and en­joy a re­ally good day.”

As ever, mo­torists are be­ing told to plan ahead with the Main Street closed for the event.

Cam­bus­lang Main Street will be closed be­tween Green­lees Road and Bridge Street from 6am un­til 8pm on the day.

Driv­ers are be­ing urged to use Cly­de­ford Road and Bridge Street as a di­ver­sion.
