VIDEO: The Stage is set for 6,000 music fans to descend on Dundee waterfront

The stage is very nearly set for a huge gig on the Dundee waterfront this weekend.

About 6,000 fans are expected to descend on the city as reggae-pop group UB40 perform at Slessor Gardens.

The finishing touches are now being made to the stage, which will host sell-outs shows by Little Mix and Olly Murs later in the year as part of Summer in Slessor Gardens.

It will be the first gig to be held at the spot since its opening last year as part of a £1 billion investment in the area.

Police were also spotted at the venue preparing for the big event on Saturday night.
