It's an online extravaganza...

Honeyblood and Travis singer Fran Healy will play online event Save Our Scottish Venues Festival this week.

The event launches on June 18th with a solo set from Fran Healy, before the three-stage festival gets under way on Friday (June 19th).

It's a broad bill, too, moving from Honeyblood to KT Tunstall via The Xcerts, Be Charlotte, and Wet Wet Wet.

The aim is to support Scotland's live music community, which has been hit hard by the COVID-19 shutdown.

Beverley Whitrick, the Strategic Director of Music Venue Trust says:

"There are over 60 Scottish members of the Music Venues Alliance, each of which is essential to the music ecosystem as social, economic and cultural hubs within their communities. The love that artists have for these spaces and the people who run them is clear from everyone stepping forward to help raise money to support venues through the crisis. Please enjoy these events and donate what you can to help."

Save Our Scottish Venues Festival takes place on Friday (June 19th) from 8pm BST.
