Up to 8,000 fans are expected to attend an open air free concert in Dumfries being headlined by N-Dubz.

It is part of the two-day Youth Beatz festival being held in the town on Friday and Saturday.

The event had to be rescheduled from its original date on 31 July due to a clash with N-Dubz's recording commitments in the US.

The proceedings are scheduled to get under way at 1930 BST at the Dock Park in Dumfries.

Town provost Jack Groom said: "Youth Beatz is shaping up to be a great event and a highlight in the Dumfries events calendar this year.

"I hope as many people as possible can come along and join in the fun and get the opportunity to see a top UK act perform in Dumfries."
