The tour will drop by Edinburgh this month and celebrated Scottish DJ and BBC Radio 1 presenter, Arielle Free, will play a set of high tempo dance tracks on top of the ice cream van on the St James Quarter rooftop.

With DJ decks, an oversized ice cream disco ball and a sparkling ice cream scoop shaped see-saw, the exuberant touring vehicle creates a wild and wonderful twist on the old school ice cream van where guests can enjoy their ultimate ice cream creations.
