Dundee singer-songwriter Kyle Falconer will perform at Dundee’s first ever Sleep in the Park event in December.
The View frontman, who has just released his debut solo album No Thank You, will perform at the event alongside Edinburgh’s Withered Hand.
Amy McDonald and KT Tunstall will also be visiting Dundee as part of their tour of all four Sleep in the Park events taking place in Scotland that night.
Organisers Social Bite and Unique Events hope to see 12,000 sleeping out on December 8.
They hope to raise £6 million from the event which will be used to continue Social Bite’s fight to eradicate poverty.
The Dundee event will be hosted by comedian and broadcaster Ewen Cameron.
Lulu will headline the event in Edinburgh’s Princes Street Gardens while Frightened Rabbit will curate Glasgow’s Sleep in the Park at Kelvingrove Park.
The band will be joined by a number of guest vocalists who perform in tribute to founding member Scott Hutchinson, who died in May.
Eddi Reader will headline Aberdeen’s event.
Social Bite co-founder Josh Littlejohn said: “To try and tackle homelessness head on we’ve got to think big and Sleep in the Park 2018 is Social Bite’s biggest ever campaign.
“Sleep in the Park will bring thousands of people together to raise funds so homeless people around Scotland are housed and given the support they need to get back on their feet.
“By joining the movement, participants can take part in an incredible night, enjoy some of Scotland’s best bands and know that they’re doing something that will really make a difference.
“I would like to thank all of the amazing music acts who are supporting the event, in particular Grant Hutchison and the other members of Frightened Rabbit, whose performance will be incredibly special and poignant.”
Hutchison said: “It’s an honour to play for such a special event again and we felt it would be the perfect time for us to play together again and share this special night with some of our favourite artists.
“We had agreed to play Sleep In The Park before Scott passed and we felt that since it was something for such a great cause that we should stick to our decision and honour Scott in the best way we know – to play the songs he wrote and continue spreading his message of kindness whilst supporting Social Bite and the amazing work they do.”
Last year saw 8,000 people come together in Edinburgh’s city centre on the coldest night of the year, with some of Scotland’s most respected sports people, religious leaders and political figures all enduring the freezing temperatures to raise a total of £4 million for the cause.
Members of the public can join Sleep in the Park 2018 by committing to raise £100. Businesses can sponsor the event by signing up a team of five with a minimum fundraising commitment of £3,000.
