HEADLINERS who wowed crowds at TRNSMT and Belladrum have been announced for Dunfermline’s own festival.

Alternative rockers Fatherson, who have toured with Scottish household names Biffy Clyro and Twin Atlantic, alongside Luke la Volpe, who made his debut appearance at Glasgow Green in July, will be heading to the city next month.

They'll be appearing at the Outwith Festival, the arts and music extravaganza that's making a welcome return to the city.

Luke, who admitted that some of his “best memories” were from festivals, will perform here on Saturday September 10.

He won Male Breakthrough Artist at the 2020 Scottish Music Awards and made it to number one in the Scottish charts with his single, Dead Man’s Blues.

The musicians were announced for Outwith alongside Twitter and YouTube comedy sensation Eleanor Morton, who went viral with her videos depicting familiar Scottish characters and has provided support for Frankie Boyle, and best-selling author, Shaun Blythell.

His memoir, Diary of a Bookseller, was hailed as a Sunday Times bestseller, as he recounted tales from working in Wigtown’s The Bookshop.

Returning to the city will be award-winning play Thunderstuck, after it first debuted at the Dunfermline festival in 2017.

It has since been performed around the world, telling the story of legendary bagpiper Gordon Duncan, a Pitlochry bin man who changed Scottish music forever.

The festival will run across several venues from Tuesday, September 6, until Sunday, September 11.

The Saturday of Outwith will involve an all-day music event featuring the likes of Pulled Apart By Horses, Bang Bang Romeo, Pleasure Heads, Connor Fyfe, SILVI and Lewis McLaughlin, as well as Fatherson and Luke la Volpe.

There will also be a huge arts line-up at Fire Station Creative, featuring internationall renowned painter Adrian Wisniewski.

Learning opportunities will also be on hand as Steven Dick, writer for Frankie Boyle and BBC’s Have I Got News for You, joins in to teach the tricks of the trade to budding comedy writers.

Outwith Festival has received funding from the Carnegie Dunfermline Trust, EventScotland, Fife Council and Fife Strategic Events Fund.
