Live music made its return to Tayside in 2022 with the region hosting a series of major concerts and festivals.
After a two-year hiatus for most shows, fans enjoyed performances from legends of pop, rock and dance across the summer months.
But events planned for Perth and Kirkcaldy fell victim to poor ticket sales as people were more careful about how to spend their money.
Just one major festival is left for 2022 – but you can enjoy all the best images from the various events that took place throughout the year.
Where? Scone Palace, Perth.
When? August 19-21.
What? Organised by Fly Promotions, which is behind other similar events, Otherlands promises to be a celebration of culture when it makes its bow at the Perth venue.
The festival will feature a host of different music styles including dance and electronica, and revellers will be able to camp at the site.
Otherlands have also partnered up with BBC Introducing, Sub Club, the Boiler Room and Sneaky Pete’s who will host their own stages at the festival.
Who? Acts announced include Jamie XX, Honey Dijon, Tom Misch, Bicep and Maverick Sabre with a host of other artists also set to appear.
