Prestfest organisers have confirmed that they’ll be putting on a show this September.

After missing out last year because of COVID-19, Prestfest, Prestwick’s annual live music festival will be returning this year on September 3-5.

This year’s event will mark 10 years since they first put on a show and the ninth edition of the festival is set to be a cracker.

Some of the bands confirmed to be playing thus far are: 2 Tone, Skaledonia, Badstone, and Memphis.

More will be revealed in due course.

Bill Briceland, one of the organisers said: “The Prestfest committee are grateful for the support from South Ayrshire Council, Prestwick Business Association and the Rotary Club whose help has made this year’s festival possible.

“Once again the festival will be supporting the Cash for Kids charity.

“Join the festival’s Facebook page to keep up to date with what is happening.”

We moved into level zero of the Scottish government’s coronavirus restrictions yesterday, which means outdoors seated events are permitted with a maximum capacity of 2,000 and outdoors free-standing events permitted with a maximum capacity of 1,000.

These numbers could increase as the next review of rule changes is due on August 9, potentially allowing a larger crowd at Prestfest.

In previous years Prestfest has been entirely funded by the local business community, with fundraising taking place across the weekend of the festival to bank some money for following year’s editions.
