Pop legends The Human League are to headline Stonehaven's hogmanay party.

The 80s stars top a line-up which includes Scots folk band The Peatbog Faeries.

Organisers are predicting the event will beat last year's Open Air In The Square (OAITS) show which was headlined by Simple Minds.

OAITS chairman David Lawman said: "I think this news has been worth waiting for."

He added: "We are aiming to add to the line-up to set up a great mix of music for all tastes and all age groups.

"This is another scoop for the little town that likes to think big and I would like to personally thank our dedicated band of volunteers who have had many sleepless nights trying to follow on from last year's major success."

The Human League have had a string of top 10 hits including Mirror Man and Fascination.

Their biggest hit, Don't You Want Me, has been adopted by fans of Aberdeen FC to pay tribute to midfielder Peter Pawlett.
