Music fans planning to attend this year's Blues and Jazz Rallye are warned to go armed with a brolly.
But, while rain has been forecast for Saturday, it won't prevent the 54 acts and musicians from delivering a torrent of top tunes to those who brave the weather.
From 7pm until 3am Blues and Jazz acts including Big Pete Pearson & The Gamblers, Jimmy Burns and the Howlin' Bill, will perform in free concerts across the Grund and Clausen.
Altogether some 12 stages and 17 bars and cafés will host the gigs, bringing the city to life with the sound of music.
