With the final countdown to this year’s big day upon us, the Park Fest Team are all stations go!

The lifeboat crew are putting the final touches to their bar, making sure it’s stocked for all the thirsty patrons, the sound guys are checking the mics, wires and desks, the stage crew are hiding in darkened rooms saving their strength for the upcoming heavy lifting of amps and instruments.

With months of preparation finally coming to fruition this Friday 19th of August the Park Fest Team are trying very hard to keep their calm amidst all the last minute hurdles that will inevitably appear.

This year will witness an emotional farewell performance by local musicians The Elastic Band, they have chosen the Park Fest stage for their final performance sadly feeling unable to continue performing without beloved band member Big Q, who sadly passed away this year.

Over the years they have made a lot of friends with their interpretation of blues, folk, rock and pop music from mainly the 60s and 70s.

Also appearing are Freefall formed in 2015 by Angela Whitelaw and Callum Black at Stranraer Guitar Club; Novante, a multi award-winning Scottish rock band.

Stranraer RNLI Park Fest takes place at Agnew Park, Stranraer. Friday 19th August 7pm & Saturday 20th August 12pm.

Come rain, hail or shine, we look forward to welcoming each and every one of you to Agnew Park this weekend.
