Dumfries is preparing to welcome the Bay City Rollers as part of the 2016 Big Burns Supper.

The 70s boy band pop stars, known for their tartan trousers and hits like Bye Bye Baby, Shang-A-Lang and I Only Wanna Be With You, will be on stage in the festival’s Spiegeltent this evening.

“It’s time to squeeze back into the tartan trousers and sing along with some of the catchiest songs of the seventies.

“We’re absolutely ecstatic to be welcoming the Les McKeown and the Bay City Rollers to Dumfries. It’s our festival’s fifth birthday and we thought it would be great celebrate with a bit of Rollermania.

– Graham Main, Artistic Director, Big Burns Supper
