The Party at the Palace music festival in Linlithgow is set to go ahead with Deacon Blue expected to be one of the headliners.

The two day festival based at The Peel will take place on the weekend of August 9 and 10.

Promoter John Richardson told the Journal and Gazette this week that full details of the headline acts would be announced on 

John was tight-lipped about who will headline both days for contractual reasons but the Gazette understands one of the bands will be Deacon Blue, who have had a string of chart successes.

John did however confirm some support acts, these include The Silencers, Horse and The Bluebells.

Tickets, priced £98 for a two-day ticket, £52 adult day ticket, £20 under 14’s, and under 3’s free will be available through usual outlets including Ticket Soup and local company Loop Connections as from Monday, May 5.

Traffic concerns also look to have been resolved with Oracle and a local farmer offering parking provision.
