Dundee City Council has revealed more details of how Slessor Gardens will be transformed into a concert venue.
With major events involving Little Mix, UB40 and Olly Murs already confirmed for the summer, fans have been eager to know how Dundee’s new public space will be adapted to accommodate the stage and facilities for the thousands of people expected to attend.
An application by promoters The Liz Hobbs Group reveals the stage will be put up at the Caird Hall end of Slessor Gardens, with setup to take three days.
Both Thomson Avenue, which runs between Slessor Gardens and the car park behind the Caird Hall, and Dock Street will be closed to traffic during the events. Buses will be diverted via Ward Road and Meadowside.
The main South Marketgait and Riverside routes north and south of the site will remain open throughout.
Councillors have been urged to grant licences for the Little Mix concert on June 29 and UB40’s gig at the same venue the previous month.
An application for Olly Murs’ concert in July will be submitted at a later date.
