THIS is how it's done – this is how it should always be done.

Falkirk's Vibration Festival was a success for a number of reasons: the line-up, the setting, the catering, the performances, the atmosphere... even the weather, by and large, held-up over the two days.

From the organisers point of view, there is a clear understanding of what most people want from such an event.

Fewer festivals will nail the balance of family-friendly fun and a full-on party atmosphere. Fewer still will remain as devoted to promoting up-and-coming Scottish acts as Vibration, while also attracting bands from across the UK to enrich the bill's offering.

Much in the same vein as the likes of Party at the Palace, it caters to a wide range of audiences and is a huge part of the Scottish music scene.

There is also a welcome appreciation for local talent with Forth Valley and Fife acts littered across the three stages.

It is not easy to put on a festival, especially at the end of a pandemic, with bands having to drop out and replacements drafted in at late stages.

Vibration is only in its second year – having been disrupted by restrictions in 2020 – but it will likely attract much greater interest in years to come. There will surely be a number of hurdles still to face, chief among which will be trying to top 2021.
