A host of festivals and gigs are taking place across Tayside and Fife this year.
A host of festivals and gigs are taking place across Tayside and Fife this year.

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.

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.
