The first bands are being revealed for this year's Party At The Palace, coming to Linlithgow Palace on the 8th and 9th of August with Heart.

On Saturday, Scottish icons Travis will top the bill, joined by the likes of The Feeling, Justin Currie from Del Amitri and Horse.

Sunday will see Chic, featuring Nile Rodgers, bring disco to Linlithgow with their only Scottish gig of the summer, following the release of their first studio album for 23 years, packed with collaborations including Elton John and Miley Cyrus.

Also taking to the stage on day two will be Scouting For Girls, Julie Fowlis and The Red Hot Chilli Pipers.

Tickets are on sale now and there are more acts to be announced.

PATP Producer, John Richardson, said: "It's incredible that we have managed to attract a truly global megastar like Nile to come to Linlithgow. The town won't know what's hit it!  

"You only have to look at his back catalogue of hits from Chic to David Bowie, Duran Duran to Daft Punk to appreciate just what a show this is going to be."

Nile Rodgers said: "We are all thrilled to be coming back to Scotland this summer. I've played some great venues around the world in my time but performing in such a magnificent setting will be really special. Scottish audiences are always pretty lively too so it's bound to be a magical night".

John Richardson added: "We're also excited for the return of Travis to Scotland. It'll be their only Scottish date this year and with a new album on the way, this will be a bit of a homecoming gig for them.

"They have a bucketful of anthems and we know that they'll have our crowd singing along all night."
