Not your average get together, this Party at the Palace shindig features a ton of top turns including The Charlatans, KT Tunstall, Midge Ure, Deacon Blue, Wet Wet Wet and the Fun Lovin’ Criminals, as well as a myriad of rising talent.

It all kicks off in the town’s Lochside Field just before 1pm on Saturday and ends after 10pm on Sunday.

The festival also includes a fun fair, kids’ entertainment, a market area, a street food scene, and a pamper zone and the whole weekend will also be compered by popular presenters from Forth One.

Earlier in the year the event’s co-producer John Richardson said he was thrilled to be bringing such an impressive line up to his home town.

He said: “We say the same each year, however, we are genuinely delighted with this year’s line-up. There is something for everyone with some truly iconic Scottish acts, some festival favourites and great new bands who will perhaps go on to headline festivals in years to come.”

And one of those bands may just be Falkirk act Primes, who are scheduled to take to the Breakthrough Stage at 4.30pm on Sunday to show the Party at the Party punters how to really rock a festival.

The band, Ollie Kitchen (vocals/bass), Sarah Monteith-Skelton (guitar/vocals) and Reece Ryan(drums/vocals), have already played Vibration Festival this year, letting crowds hear songs like Don’t Forget Your Memories, Breathe, Together Forever, Haunted and Bodies.
