DD8 Music has announced the stellar line-up of headliners for this year’s ever-popular Bonfest music festival in Kirriemuir.

The annual festival, which celebrates the music of AC/DC and iconic frontman Bon Scott, kicks off this year on August 15.

Opening act on the night will be the incredible all girl tribute Back:N:Black.

These amazing Swiss “Ladies from Hades” have been wowing audiences all over Europe.

Every girl in the band is a top-notch musician, and a hardcore AC/DC fan, always belting out the classic AC/DC repertoire with blistering conviction, high energy and theatrical surprises.

Then on Saturday, August 16 Kirriemuir welcomes Spain’s greatest tribute to AC/DC - The Bon Scott Revival Show.

Playing a set of the classic ’73-’79 band line-up, this band sounds and looks just like the real thing, playing with a passion and energy that is sure to get Kirrie Town Hall jumping.

Graham Galloway, DD8 Music chairman, said: “The word legend is one that is bandied about a bit too easily these days.

“However, we can say without doubt that our final headliner for this year’s Bonfest is a 100 per cent total legend!

“Playing on Sunday, August 17 we have the incredible Mr Thunderstruck himself, Chris Slade!

“Chris has had an absolutely amazing career as a rock drummer, playing with a who’s who list of musical greats.

“And of course Chris was also the drummer for AC/DC for five years.

“We are incredibly honoured to have Chris as our closing act at this year’s festival, and don’t need to tell you that this is one gig you do not want to miss!”

Tickets for the event will be on sale at the end of February.
