A VENUE has been secured for a new two-day music festival set to take place on the banks of Loch Lomond this autumn.

Live at Loch Lomond will take place on September 22 and 23 at Luss Highland Games Park, which has a capacity of 3,000.

The festival is billed as a mixture of traditional Scottish music, including some big names, as well as up and coming indie rock and alternative bands from across the country and a number of local acts.

One of the event organisers told the Reporter: “We are delighted to be working with Luss Estates to secure the venue. It’s a cracking venue that’s renowned for holding the Highland Games, which are renowned for their success.

“It’s the perfect area with close proximity to the loch and a couple of hotels. Luss as a location is ideal.”

Organisers began announcing bands on Sunday and will continue to release names of acts taking part every day until Monday, June 11 when the full line-up will be revealed.

Bands announced so far include Headland, an energetic pop band that “merges music from the Scottish Traditional scene and fuses it with the bands pop and country roots” who had a debut sold out show in Glasgow in January and are playing at the Classic Grand in October.

Another act to be revealed is Luke La Volpe, who bring together a mixture of blues and rock and roll. Since forming in July 2017, the band has supported the likes of Alabama 3, Gerry Cinnamon and Tome Clarke from The Enemy , as well as selling out their debut own EP launch at the Caves in Edinburgh.

Acts at the event will perform over two live band stages and an acoustic busking style stage, with over a third of bands coming from the local area, including Dumbarton, Balloch and Helensburgh.

There will be a pre-sale for tickets on June 13, which require a pre-sale code and early bird tickets will go on sale on Friday, June 15.

Organisers are currently working on preparing transport links, with full details to be announced at a later date.
