Free festival is sell out

YOUTH Beatz 2016 is a sell out as all 12,000 tickets have been claimed.

Following on from the event launch announcement that James Arthur and Cascada would headline this year’s festival, the organisers say they have been overwhelmed by the response.
Festival volunteer, Michael Williams said: “We can’t believe how quickly the tickets have gone this year.
“We had an idea that it would be popular with the Acts we had lined up, but we couldn’t guess at this much demand.
“It’s really good for us on the events team to see that an event like this that we’re working on has so many people buzzing for it – we just can’t wait for it to come round now.”
Councillor Ted Thompson, Provost of Dumfries added: “Youth Beatz and The Toon are great opportunities for our youth to participate in and take pride in their community.
“I am delighted to announce the event has now sold out – and that this has been the quickest uptake ever.
“The work put in by the team organising the event has been welcomed by the young people of Dumfries and Galloway and sets the stage for another fantastic day.”
The nation’s largest free youth event will this year take place on August 13 at Dock Park.

Young people can still attend the seven days of free events that lead up to the main day and full details can be found on
