Following an Xfm competition, five bands will battle it out to open up this weekend’s Party At The Palace festival in Linlithgow.

Apache Darling, The Begbies, Rewired, The Phantoms and Long Way Home play on Friday evening at Linlithgow Cross, following a series of announcements by Jim Gellatly on the Xfm Drivetime show.

The bands play in the town on an outdoor stage on Friday 7th, with the winners staying in a local hotel before opening the stage next day, where Travis will headline. The festival continues on Sunday 9th August with headliners Chic.
