The Line up for the Edinburgh Edge festival is due to be announced at 12pm today. The Scotsman says Doves are part of the line-up, the festival takes place in August. The Edge Festival was previously known as T on the Fringe.. Doves took part in the 2002 festival at a fantastic sold out Edinburgh Corn Exchange which I wrote about here. The first time I saw Peter Kay on stage!

More concrete info as I have it.

Edit: Gig will take place at the HMV Picture house on August 8th. Tickets priced £18.50 on sale at 9:30am tomorrow.

Edinburgh, Corn Exchange 2002

Edinburgh Corn Exchange, August 22nd 2002 “T On The Fringe”.

Support: Magnet

Notes I wrote in my gig book at the time:

Heard the band soundcheck The Sulphur Man before the gig.

Peter Kay introduced the band saying “You do know your all missing out on tonight’s episode of Phoenix Nights” to which the crowd responded with massive cheer! Massive gig, crowd were well up for it. After the amazing shows at the Glasgow Barras & Manc Academy back in May.. Doves have landed! Now onto the Winter tour starting in Newcastle November 18th.
