Rewind Festival is the latest summer event in Scotland to be postponed amidst the coronavirus pandemic.
The 80s-themed festival, due to take place at Perth’s Scone Palace this summer, has been postponed until next year over health and safety fears.
The line-up for the three-day event, which was set to run between 17th and 19th July, featured 80s stars Wet Wet Wet, Billy Ocean, Bananarama and Grandmaster Flash.
England’s two versions of the festival – Rewind North and Rewind South – have also been rescheduled for 2021.
Ticket, parking, glamping, campervan and V.I.P purchases for the 2020 events will be valid for next year.

“The health and safety of all Rewinders, the artists, staff and community will always be our top priority, and it became clear that rescheduling the festivals was unavoidable.
“We have spoken with all the artists involved and are so grateful to them and the venues, and we are excited to announce that we will be rescheduling the dates to next year.”
The Perth festival will now run from 23rd to 25th July 2021.
The statement continued: “Your Tickets, Parking, Glamping, Moorings, V.I.P, When Nature Calls, Campervans, Caravans etc. will all be valid for these new dates.
“We are working closely with our ticketing partners and they will be in touch with you very soon by email.

“We look forward to seeing you all in 2021.
For now, Stay Safe, Stay Home and look after each other.”
