Following their phenomenal return with the critically acclaimed ‘Butterfly House’, The Coral have cemented their position as one of the UK’s most established and exciting bands. Taking to the Summerisle Stage on Saturday night they are guaranteed to delight the Wickerman audience.
While Glasgow Rock band GUN add a burst of Glaswegian swagger to the lineup.

They join The Coral on the Summerisle Stage on Saturday night.
