The organisers of this weekend’s Vibration Festival have come up with the perfect line-up they have been working towards for the last three years.

Folk will file in and fill the massive grassy space of Falkirk’s Callander Park on Saturday, September 3 and Sunday, September 4 to see a whole host of top turns strut their stuff on stage.

Topped by Saturday’s headliners The Charlatans and Sunday’s closers The Darkness, the 2022 line-up genuinely has something to suit everyone who likes their music live, loud and outdoors.

Andy Ure, co-organiser of the Vibration Festival with brother David, knows a thing or two about attending and playing big music festivals, having performed at Big in Falkirk and T-in-the-Park when he was the frontman of one of Falkirk’s finest ever bands The Ray Summers.

Now he’s becoming a dab hand at organising them.

Andy said: “When we started Vibration Festival we wanted it to still be going in 20 year’s time – we wanted to do something for the local community. I was at Big in

Falkirk and it was a big kick in the teeth when we lost that.

"Now I feel Vibration is something the local area can be very proud of. The line-up has been growing from year one, to year two, to year three and we now have the festival we always wanted it to be.”

While we all try to put the COVID-19 pandemic behind us, Andy says the effects of that devastating period for the live music industry are still being felt.

"We have strong suppliers, but I know a few of the events and festivals have been struggling. It’s a lot less stressful than it was last year – in 2021 we never got the nod it was actually going ahead until a month before.

"We’ve had a lot longer to plan things this year.”

Talking on site at Callander Park, while the main stage was being constructed, Andy could not hide his excitement for Vibration 2022.

"It's going to be a great weekend – we’ve got some unbelievable bands this year. We feel the line up is a strong mix of some really well known bands, some of
