The two-day event was hailed as a resounding success as gig-goers were welcomed back to Callendar Park last weekend to enjoy a series of stunning live performances for the first time since the festival launched in 2019.

Among the highlights were the headline set by The Fratellis, crowd-pleasers by Reef, the performance of The Voice winner Craig Eddie and the acts that lit up the Breakthrough Stage, Acoustic Garden and Secret Disco.

A Vibration Festival statement read: “We would like to extend a massive thanks to all of you for supporting us through these difficult times.
