Everything you need to know about Little Mix live at the Royal Highland Centre tonight:

How do I get there?

Lothian Buses will be operating a special service 98 direct to the Royal Highland Centre north car park.

The service is set to run every 15 minutes between from 3pm - 6.45pm from St Andrew Square stopping at Shandwick Place, Haymarket and then picking up at all stops through Corstorphine.

After the show finishes, the buses will run at every 15 minutes back to the city centre until 11pm.

Return fares for the service are available from £6 for adults and £3 for children.

Commuters have been advised to arrive in plenty of time with Friday, June 30 being the first day of the school holidays and those travelling to and from the concert are being urged to plan their route accordingly.

What can I take in?

No bags bigger than A4 size will be allowed into the concert arena, and bags which are larger will be placed into a holding area. The owner will be issued will a ticket to retrieve the bag at the end of the concert.

Additionally, outside food and drinks are not permitted within the concert arena with exceptions for ONE unopened plastic bottle of water under 500ml and customers with specific dietary requirements such as diabetes.

A range of catering and bars is available within the village but there are no cash machines inside.

Revellers are also reminded that this is standing only and folding or plastic chairs will not be allowed in.

What time do they hit the stage?

Little Mix are expected on stage at around 8.30pm, but before the headline act there are two supporting artists to entertain the crowd.

Up first is Australian indie-pop band Sheppard - who previously supported Justin Bieber on his latest tour of Australia and New Zealand - set to kick off their set at 6.35pm.

They are followed by chart-topper Ella Eyre, whose collaboration with Rudimental in 2014 scored her a No. 1 with Waiting All Night.

Will it rain?

Probably. It is an outdoor concert in Edinburgh after all. The Met Office forecast is predicting light rain leading up to the gig, however overcast - but dry - conditions are expected from 7pm onwards. Revellers should bring clothing suitable for all weather conditions just to be on the safe side. No umbrellas are permitted within the concert arena.
