THE best unsigned artists in Ayrshire are to showcase their talents later this month.

They will do so in a festival which will be held in the Volunteer Rooms in Irvine on Saturday, June 24.

The show, dubbed 'Best of Ayrshire', will be an amazing opportunity to catch a glimpse of some of the best up and coming bands and performers from the county.

While the gig in Irvine will also be the final chance for fans to see headline act 'Solider On' play.

The band, who are from Irvine, have confirmed that the festival will be their last show together.

They have enjoyed much success over the years and the Best of Ayrshire provides the perfect place to bow out.

The band had previously split in 2017, but later re-united for two sold-out gigs in the Harbour Arts Centre in their home town.

Alongside Soldier On, performers confirmed for the event include Ocean Views, The Shores, Spleen, Breathing Method, Verces, Jodie Rae and Daniel MG.

Extra performers are still to be announced for the event, which will feature special guest MC Billy Kirkwood.

Doors for the event will open at 1pm, with live music from 1.45pm until 11pm.
