Northern Irish alternative rock band Ash is the headline act for this year’s Montrose Music Festival.

The music trio will perform at the Montrose Town Hall on Friday, May 22, kick-starting the weekend event which attracts around 100 bands from across the UK, to venues in Montrose.

This year’s festival takes place from Friday, May 22 to Sunday, May 24.

Ash will showcase songs, including ‘Cocoon’, from its forthcoming studio album, ‘Kablammo!’, its first in eight years, when it takes to the stage in Montrose.

Ash’s vocalist and guitarist, Tim Wheeler, said: “We’re really pleased to be back on the road doing a few shows this year, and are really looking forward to kicking it off with a night in Montrose as part of its music festival.”

The Montrose Music Festival, or MoFest as it’s affectionately known, is now in its eighth year and has 210 free gigs in 26 local venues lined-up for music fans.

MoFest’s Chairman, David Paton, said: “The Montrose Music Festival is going from strength to strength. We’re thrilled to welcome Ash to the line-up and have the band headline our weekend of music.”
