    Tickets had been on sale at £15 – but organisers said earlier this week that they feared would-be attendees had been caught out by the festival’s name after reports some people were confusing Souled Out with sold out.

    A spokesperson said: “We want to make sure that people know that there is availability for Souled Out as we would hate anyone to miss out.

    “It is going to be a fantastic event and we would urge anyone interested to get their tickets as soon as possible.”

    But now they have scrapped the entry fee altogether and both evenings’ entertainment will be completely free of charge.

    The Soul Food and Music Festival kicked off yesterday, with three days of street food traders, demos and music in Keel Square.

    Food stalls, selling everything from churros and pina coladas to posh kebabs and German sausage, are running from 11am each day as well as a programme of food demos.
