Connect Festival will return next summer after its Edinburgh debut saw Idles, The Chemical Brothers and The National delight crowds at the Royal Highland Centre Showgrounds.

The event, which also saw the likes of Little Simz, Self Esteem and Holly Humberstone perform across the weekend, will take place next year on August 25-27.

Connect – a revival of the event held in the 2000s at Inveraray Castle – coincided with the final part of the Edinburgh Festival and alongside the music showcased comedy, dance, food and drink.

Ohio natives The National drew the festival to a close on the main stage Sunday night having performed a more intimate, acoustic secret set at the site’s Tiny Changes Cottage.

The performance was in conjunction with the Scottish mental health charity set up in memory of Frightened Rabbit frontman Scott Hutchison.
