Headliners Billy Ocean and The Proclaimers will pack the punters in when the festival comes to town in August while popular acts like The Fratellis and cult favourites like Colonel Mustard and the Dijon 5 will draw a crowd.

However, event organisers have just announced a ton of talented artists who will star on a second stage.

While they might not exactly be household names, the following bands and singers could one day become as legendary as Mr Ocean himself.

An event spokesbloke said: “Introducing a second stage to Party at The Palace was always part of our plan to grow the event and we are delighted that it is happening this year.

“With such a strong line up on the main stage, we needed a selection of acts that would compliment rather than compete for our audience on site. Every band that we have playing seems to have a story to tell or a connection with the event in some way.

“It’s great we are being able to showcase some great emerging talent, a few local acts and one or two that already have a great track record.”

Appearing on the Star and Garter stage in 2016 are: Paisley singer songwriter Katie Doyle; teenage Edinburgh’s Got Talent winner Saskia Eng; Bearsden belter Declan Welsh; Leeds lass Saraswati; Greenock’s very own Luci Bains Band; local garage band heroes Altinak; Into the Ark; last year’s battle of the bands winners and T-in-the-Park and King Tuts veterans Apache Darling; Glasgow four-piece Kelvin; Dundee folk popsters Sinderins; Greenock troubadour Anthony McElwee; capital city crooner Gavin Blackie; Local folkie Katee Kross; London-born R&Ber Scarlet Baxter; Glasgow electronica wizards 100 Fables; Former Glaswegian busker Cyrstal, aka Anna Shields; and country folksters Ashton Lane.
