The 2012 winner of The X Factor, James Arthur, is set to headline this year's Youth Beatz concert in Dumfries.
The event has been running for the past seven years and attracts thousands of young people to the Dock Park in the town centre.
Also performing at the concert on 13th August will be dance and pop band Cascada.
“It’s always a pleasure playing to the Scottish crowds and I’ve been told the atmosphere at Youth Beatz is amazing. I can’t wait to come and experience it!”
"It’s great that our Council is able to continue to support the flagship youth festival for our region. This year’s festival will run for 8 days and will be of the same high quality that the people of Dumfries and Galloway have come to expect and enjoy so much.
"The event has such a great impact on the local economy and the impact on the young people is massive. The acts are really impressive – now we just need to hope for the good weather.”
