Music: Best of the Fest; Some of the Top Bands in the World Are Coming to Scotland to Play at Music Festivals This Year. Here's an Update on Who Is Coming and Where They Will Play


EVEN if the clouds in the sky might paint a different picture, summer is on its way - and, with it, festival season!

This year, there's more on offer than ever before. Here's a brief rundown of what you could be in for at some of Scotland's biggest fests.

Tin the Park(July 6-8) haven't bothered with any of those old wrinkly reformed bands for headliners this year - it's all about the big names of the moment.

With such a killer line-up - pun totally intended - the only thing that could possibly ruin it all is there's bound to be a ton of timetable clashes.

Catch them if you can: Arctic Monkeys, The Killers, Razorlight, Snow Patrol, My Chemical Romance, The Kooks, Amy Winehouse, The View, Scissor Sisters, Kings Of Leon, Kasabian, The Fratellis and Paolo Nutini.

Connect 2007 (Aug 31-Sept 2) has a bit more of aserious edge to it, although with The Beastie Boys, Primal Scream and Bjork headlining, Inveraray Castle is hardly going to be packed out with cardigan-wearers.

On the Your Sound Bandstand, a bunch of the finest up-and-coming bands in Scotland will get a chance to show what they're made of. And there'll be woodland walks, comedians and Highland Games in the Circuses and Bread Field if you get tired of the noise.

Belladrum Tartan Heart (Aug 10-11) festival are keeping their line-up under wraps for the moment, but with The Automatic, Biffy Clyro and Drive-by Argument having graced last year's bill, they certainly know how to make sure this family-friendly festival is anything but a snooze in the park.
