The Out East Festival Main Stage is where you'll find most of the action happening over the two-day event, whilst the Dance Tent ensures the party continues on into the small hours. A renowned family favourite, the festival will also boast plenty of activities and workshops for the kids to get stuck into at the School’s Out Zone, giving parents the opportunity to sneak off to the secluded Peace Out area, offering a relaxing space with bookable classes and treatment, such as Tai-chi, and yoga.

And it doesn't end there. There'll be live comedy, courtesy of the team behind Edinburgh Fringe Festival hotspot, The Gilded Balloon, a variety of tasty treats from some of Scotland’s best food and drink vendors, hosted by the renowned Canteen Street Food Festival, a monster Beer Hall showcasing the area's finest craft and specialist tipples, and so much more.
