The name of the band remains under wraps until Saturday morning.

The event goes ahead over two days at Callendar Park on Friday, September 3 and Saturday 4th.

It was one of many major events which was cancelled in 2020 because of the pandemic - and the organisers can’t wait to return.

As well as a main stage with live music throughout the day from international acts, the festival will also boast street performers, a breakthrough stage, acoustic stage, and DJ area.

The organisers also hope that the local community embraces live events after what they described as “a torrid time of closures and cancellations.”

Vibration is run by Polmont bothers, David and Andy Ure.

Andy (36) said: “After such a successful first event it was a hard pill to swallow not to get to come straight back with year two.

“However we know it’s been such a hard time for everyone and this time has been something we’ve had to get through together.

“The return of the festival means the world to us. It's a chance for everyone to get together in a fun and safe environment and get back to enjoying themselves again. We wanted to deliver another really strong line up.”

He added: “We hope the incredible support for Vibration Festival will continue and thank everyone for their patience in getting back to this point - it’s really is in the hands of the people to allow this to grow and become an annual event to be proud of.”
