LUSS is to play host to 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 Advertiser: “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.”

The organisers announced plans for the two-day festival earlier this year, but the choice of venue had been kept under wraps until this week.

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 and Luke La Volpe.

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.

Details of transport links will be announced at a later date.
