The past is a foreign country.
And if you were in any doubt about the truth of that particular cliche, then you just need to look at the line-up for Radio One’s Big Weekend the first time the event was held in Dundee.
The 2006 bill – highlights in the video above this article – featured a host of top names, many of whom can still pack in the crowds today, such as Primal Scream, Muse or Pink.
But there were others, like Razorlight or The Ordinary Boys, who seem so of-their-time it is incredible, arguably, they were ever considered big draws.
Even more painful for those of us who remember the concert 14 years ago, local scamps The View might have propped up the second stage on Sunday but they still hadn’t even recorded their debut album Hats off to the Buskers.
They did however, as the still up-and-running website reminds us, have a MySpace page, which is possibly the most 2006 thing ever.
Nevertheless, while it may be uncomfortable to realise the event took place a generation ago, it was a huge success for Dundee and gave the city a massive national profile.
It also showed the city could cope with hosting large-scale outdoor events even if efforts to replicate its success, such as Carnival 56, have not taken off in quite the same way.
Of course, Dundee is now a vastly different place and enjoys a far higher profile than it did 14 years ago.
The opening of the V&A in 2018 put the city firmly in the spotlight.
But the return of the Big Weekend is another opportunity to showcase everything the city has to offer to a national audience.
It will, undoubtedly, be a fantastic success.
And, hopefully, it will be the trigger for even more large-scale events in years to come.
