Rumours began back in early 2014 that Deacon Blue would headline that year after the success of Simple Minds. The headline act was eventually announced as The Human League.

The Stonehaven event - which is run by a 
volunteer committee - can attract up to 5,000 revellers to the town.

This year the organisers are staging an online “Battle of the Bands” contest between acts all over Scotland to compete for a performance slot at the Open Air In The Square 2015.
