Although in its first year, ScotFest is already shaping up to be Scotland’s second biggest music festival with a capacity of 35,000 a day. 

Organisers are making sure they cater for all the family with a Kids Zone, Petrolheads Zone and carnival as well as offering fresh food from local suppliers and camping options from £10 upwards. 

Festival boss Mark Bennett said: “We’re delighted to announce the addition of S Club to the bill and can’t wait to boogie away to their hits.

“As we know, there’s nothing like an S Club Party.”

The band now exists as a three-piece with Jo O’Meara, Tina Barrett and Bradley McIntosh taking to the stage. 

Tickets for ScotFest are available from scotfestuk.com.

Adult day tickets start at £48 and tickets for children under five are free.

Gates to the main arena open at 2pm on the Friday and 10am on the Saturday and the venue is easily reached by car, bus and tram.
