THE award-winning Party at the Palace is delighted to announce The Charlatans and Deacon Blue as the headline acts for this year's festival

This is the sixth outing for the Linlithgow festival and is set to be another highlight in Scotland’s live music calendar.

The Charlatans will headline the Saturday, supported by KT Tunstall and Midge Ure, while Deacon Blue finish the weekend off, with Wet Wet Wet and Fun Lovin' Criminals also on the bill.

In addition to two days of great live music, the festival will also feature a fun fair, kids’ entertainment, a market area, a street food scene, and a pamper zone.

The whole weekend will also be compèred by popular presenters from Forth One.

Co-Producer, John Richardson is 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.”

Fellow producer Peter Ferguson is proud of the festival’s eco-policies.

He added: “We are aiming to become one of the first carbon neutral music festivals this year.

"This follows on from the massive reduction of plastic in 2018 where plastic cups were replaced with compostable cups, there were no plastic cutlery or food containers and no plastic straws either.”

Deacon Blue frontman, Ricky Ross is looking forward to the band’s return to the festival.

The star said: “We’re delighted to be headlining the Sunday night of Party at the Palace. Since playing the first Party five years ago we hear it’s got bigger and better than ever and we can’t wait to perform in the great shadow of Linlithgow Palace again.”

Wet Wet Wet are also excited about being part of this year’s line up, saying there is "no better feeling than playing to a Scottish audience".
