Pop Icon Photobooth, 11:00 – 16:30

Taking inspiration from the explosion of pop in the 60s, through the 70s and into New Wave, our Pop Icon stylists will make you a star, with instant snaps to take home.

Annie Booth - Pop Up Performance, 13:05 – 13:35 and 15:05 –15:35

Annie Booth is a young singer-songwriter based in Edinburgh. Performing her indie-rock tinged folk throughout Scotland, she creates melancholic songs with infectious melodies, tempered by poignant vocals. Booth’s affecting debut album An Unforgiving Light was launched late 2017 (Scottish Fiction/Last Night From Glasgow) to much critical acclaim. The record was lauded as Roddy Hart’s Record of Note (BBC Radio Scotland) and featured in Vic Galloway’s Best Albums of 2017.
