Vibration Festival organisers have released details of the full line-up, which also includes Man of Moon and Black Cat Bone, on their website.

Former St Mungo’s High School pupil Craig, 23, shot into the top ten of The Official Big Top 40 just a week after winning the ITV show with his self-written track, Come Waste My Time.

Polmont brothers David and Andy Ure, who run the event, have been patiently waiting for the chance to follow on from the great success of 2019 and hope fans will lap up the chance to once again enjoy live music post-coronavirus lockdowns.

As well as the main entertainment, gig-goers can expect support acts on breakthrough and acoustic stages, plus street performers.

David, 41, said: “Lockdown hasn’t been easy for anyone and we feel that giving people an opportunity to get back out later in the summer to let their hair down and party might just be what everyone needs.

“We have a huge space outdoors in Callendar Park where we will be working with our team to deliver a fun and safe environment where people can spread out, let loose and enjoy themselves.

“We hope the huge support we have received to date will continue through 2021 and thank everyone in helping us get to this point. This festival started as a one-day event and after missing 2020 we decided to stick our plan and grow the event to two days.

“After a torrid 16 months of lockdown, restrictions, cancellations and closures, the festival will not only be a standout in a summer calendar, but should hopefully grow to be a centre piece in the larger Scottish festival schedule – something that we and everyone who continues to support the journey will be hugely proud of.”
