A FESTIVAL of live music is on its way to Rosyth this summer.

The inaugural Fife Fest will be held in the town in July with a host of local bands taking to the stage with a number of headline acts.

The View's frontman Kyle Falconer is the day's main attraction with Toploader, Stevie McCrorie and QFX all playing on the main stage throughout the festival on Saturday, August 4 at Rosyth Civil Sports Club.

Fife Fest has been organised by Kevin Payne and Robert Ford of Benarty Events Group.

Kevin told the Press: "We were very sad to hear the news that last year's PKD Festival wouldn't be continuing in 2018.

"We had been invited to come along and we had been very impressed by it.

"Once we heard about PKD, we thought we could try and put one on instead.

"It's very important to us that the area has a festival on its doorstep.

"It's been a lot of hard work - about six or seven months of planning and organising - and we've still got more announcements to make, but we're very happy with how it's all going."

The Rubber Stamp Stage has been organised by Stuart Watson of Rubber Stamp Promotions, and features several bands from the local area.

Oskar Braves, Sunset Spirit, The Decrees, Gentlemen Jackals, Between The Lines, Splendid Suns and Paris Street Rebels will all perform at the family-fun day.

Kevin continued: "We're very pleased with the names we've got booked so far.

"We can't thank Stuart enough for helping us, he's really passionate about local entertainment and making sure people have a good time."

The tickets cost £20 with free entry to kids up to the age of 12.
