A US record deal for N-Dubz has forced a change of date for what is hoped to be the biggest free music festival in Scotland this year.

Youth Beatz 2010 had been scheduled to take place on 31 July at Dock Park in Dumfries.

However, the pop trio will now be performing on 16 July instead, before heading out to the US.

Among their support acts will be Fugative, who had a top 40 hit with his latest single Crush.

A spokeswoman for Dumfries and Galloway Council confirmed the date change due to the record deal.

"A condition attached to the deal is that they go to the USA at the end of July or early August to start recording," she said.

"This has resulted in them having to rearrange a number of shows."

She added that the change of date would now see the festival take place over two days, 16 and 17 July.
