“We are aiming to become one of the first carbon neutral music festivals this year,” he revealed. “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.

“We’re delighted to be headlining the Sunday night of Party at the Palace,” said Ricky. “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.

The band said: “We’re absolutely delighted to be one of the headliners at Party at The Palace this summer. There’s no better feeling than playing to a Scottish audience and what a treat to get to play in such a stunning location.

“So, come and dance the night away with us on what’s guaranteed to be a special night!”
