Amy Macdonald and Kaiser Chiefs to headline McEwan’s Party at The Palace

Following on from the success of last year’s event, McEwan’s Party at The Palace has announced its best line-up to date, with the headline slots being taken up by the mighty Kaiser Chiefs and Scottish singer-songwriter Amy Macdonald.

They will be performing alongside the likes of Razorlight, Lightning Seeds, Bjorn Again and many others, including Glasgow favourites Hipsway and Irish indie stars Ash.

Set against the stunning backdrop of Linlithgow Palace, this year’s two-day spectacular is set to be another highlight in Scotland’s
live music calendar.

Now in its fourth year, McEwan’s Party at The Palace has become a firm family favourite in Scotland and was recently voted Best Outdoor Festival by The Scottish Outdoor & Leisure Awards 2016.

Looking ahead to her headline slot, singer Macdonald said: “I’ve heard a lot of great things about Party at the Palace and I’m so excited that I’ll finally get to visit the festival.

“It’s in such a beautiful setting and I’m sure it will be a great weekend,” added the 29-year-old, who has released three albums and sold over five million records worldwide – including 1.5 million here in the UK.  “My band and I are very excited about the show!”

Organiser John Richardson said:  “We’re incredibly excited to welcome music fans to the party again this summer. We have made a few changes for this year and the crowd can look forward to some great new additions to the site as well as a fantastic line up over the weekend.

“We’ve set the bar very high in previous years by bringing some amazing artists to Linlithgow – from Deacon Blue and Simple Minds in our first year, to Nile Rogers, Travis, The Proclaimers and Billy Ocean, so, we are delighted to have The Kaiser Chiefs and Amy Macdonald alongside a host of other great bands, spread across our two stages for 2017.

“It’s going to be the biggest party yet!”

The line up for the second stage has still to be confirmed and will be announced soon. McEwan’s Party at The Palace takes place on Saturday 12 and Sunday 13 August 2017 and tickets are on sale now from
