The Moorland May music festival is set to take place in Langholm over the bank holiday weekend, 27-28 May.

Over 13 bands will be performing across all hotels in the town over the two days.

Organisers are hoping to take advantage of tourists lured to the area for the Spring Fling.

Well tourism's kind of integral to the town you know, a lot of the local businesses are closing down. It's a bit of a tough time at the minute so the more folk we can attract through the town to come and maybe stay the night or have a meal, things like that then the better it is for everyone.

People kind of drive straight through Langholm there's not a great many places they can stop so if we can make the most of it while the folk are here you know and try and do as much as we can for the local businesses then we're more than happy to do that.
