Fort William is to welcome a new music and culture festival next year.
Highland Tribes will take place at the Nevis Centre on July 15.
The festival will take place over two stages at the centre.
On the main stage, audiences can find ‘bigger and more interactive bands, which include some of the biggest tribal drum bands in the country and beyond’.
The smaller stage will be in
the acoustic lounge, where
people can hear new up-and-coming acts from around the Highlands.
The festival is now looking to hear from musicians who would like to perform at the event.
Violinists, guitarists, drummers, pipers and others can all now apply to appear on one of the live music stages.
To find out more about how you can apply, head to http://www.highlandtribes.co.uk/applications-now-open-for-musicians.
Highland Tribes has also launched a 57th Nevis Fund to help the centre battle funding cuts.
Every ticket sold at the event will include a five per cent levy which will then be donated to the centre for maintenance and restoration.
