Twenty top live music acts are preparing to rock out and entertain in aid of charity at Kitty’s and Kandy in Kirkcaldy this Sunday.

The annual Rock the Rovers event is now in its ninth year, having originally started in 2005 as a bid to raise money for Raith Rovers during the Fife Free Press backed Reclaim The Rovers campaign.

And this year it looks set to be bigger and better than ever, promising great bands and a brilliant atmosphere, while raising a whole lot of cash for charity.

Since 2005 the gig has raised over £52,000 for more than 25 different local charities and Raith Rovers Football Club.

And this year’s event is no different, with four charities, and the football club, set to benefit.

The charities being supported this year are Balwearie High School’s department of additional support; Cleft Lip and Palate Association, Rett Syndrome Scotland and SANDS.

Organisers hope members of the community will continue to show their support to the popular fundraising event, which has become an event in the town’s music calendar, and to help raise even more money for charity.

A wide range of acts and musical styles are set to appear on two stages at the 2013 event.

The main stage will be in Kitty’s, while there will be an acoustic stage set up in Kandy.

Those acts lined up to play this year are Charles Wood, No1Sun, Slipstream, Lion Spirit Music, Andy Chung, Natalie Galloway, Scoonie Brae, Rantum Scantum, The Shine, State of Emergency, Velour Amour, Mikey 9’s, Folk That, Gavin Patrick, Alex Clarke, Cousin Ken’s Nephews, The Cavaliers, Steph, Mark Grant and Bad Boogaloo.

Tickets will be available on the door on Sunday, priced £10.

Doors open at 12.30 p.m. and the music starts at 1.00 p.m.
