The Small City’s Lesser South Inch is the planned venue for Party at the Park – a music extravaganza with stacks to do for all the family - on June 27 and 28 next year.
From the folks behind Linlithgow’s crazily popular Party at the Palace, it’s the latest music event to come to our area and follows in the well-trod footsteps of the much loved Rewind, Southern Fried and Solas and Fake Festivals.
Wet, Wet Wet, Deacon Blue and the Charlatans were just some of the main acts at the Linlithgow event this year and extras included a pamper zone, market area, kids entertainment and funfair. Sweet, sweet, sweet!
Event organiser Peter Ferguson described Perth as the “perfect location” for the event (we know!) and said festival goers can look forward to brilliant music and loads more besides!
“We’d have household names on the main stage, developing local talent elsewhere on the site, lots of activities for kids and a great mix of food and drink as well. We’d be pretty much replicating what has worked well in Linlithgow,” he says.

“We’d been looking at lots of different areas around Scotland to expand our ‘Party At’ brand and were so impressed by Perth and Kinross Council’s experience of working in partnership with the events industry over the past 20 years. We knew Perth was perfect.”
Small City’s resident music reviewer Colin McSloy has certainly given the event his official thumbs up and looks forward to the exposure it could give to local bands.
“It’s great that an event like this is coming to Perth,” he said, “There are now a lot of festivals around our area but some of these are indoor or are catering to a nostalgia crowd. If this one features the kinds of bands that appear at Party at the Palace, I’ll definitely be going along.”
“It’s great too that organisers want to support our local talent and gives a chance for our up and coming bands to be seen by more people.”
Music to your ears? We thought so!
Rona Munro's version of Mary Shelley's Frankenstein is a very modern chiller, with great a set, impeccable performance and evocative sound design.
