Organisers of Brechin’s inaugural Music Fest have confirmed that Clerk Street will be closed for festivities on Saturday, August 31.

The closure of the street will allow for carnival rides and a music stage to be set up so locals of all ages can enjoy the Music Fest.

The carnival fun, which will include children’s rides plus two bigger carnival rides, will be supplied by Horne’s Pleasure Fairs.

There will also be a barbecue by Bruce Brymer’s butchers in the street, along with face painting stalls.

A stage will be set-up outside Hudsons with music acts already confirmed to play throughout the day.

Bands already confirmed as play during the weekend are The Last Orders,, Suzy Maynard, Nosmo King, Heidrum, Snappin’ Turtles. The Bygones; Dutch Courage. Gav Hedge. Emerald Sunday. Tonka. Alpha Helix. Dreamtime. Two Wheels Good and The Ballroom Gitz.

The headline act for the event is, of course, The Complete Stone Roses, who play at the City Hall on Friday, August 30, with support by local Angus band, The Trade.

A limited amount of tickets are still available for the City Hall performance by the tribute band, and these can be purchased from the Brechin Advertiser office at a cost of £16.50.
