As temperatures across the country soar, one of Scotland’s most loved music and arts festivals is also heating up! The Wickerman Festival has announced that even more acts - from reggae to rock – are set to grace its stages this July.
New to the main Summerisle stage are hotly tipped Scottish indie act Finding Albert, whose recently released ‘Life and Times’ EP was produced by Dumfries born Calvin Harris. Compered by BBC Introducing DJ Ally McCrae, the Summerisle stage will also host Scottish Album of the Year Award nominees, guitar pop four piece Bwani Junction and Edinburgh drum’n’brass street ensemble The Horndog Brass Band, whose New Orleans style blend of swing, funk and hip-hop is set to be a sure-fire hit with one of the UK’s friendliest festival crowds.
The Scooter tent bill is also enhanced with additions in the form of Scottish four piece Root System, returning to Wickerman by popular demand, high energy ska favourites Big Fat Panda and much loved classic punk from tribute act The Counterfeit Clash.
The Acoustic Village, home to chilled out folk, indie and shoegaze, has also revealed its much anticipated line up: featuring Artmagic, a new collaboration between Suede guitarist Richard Oakes and songwriter and producer Sean McGhee, and profoundly talented Carrbridge songstress Rachel Sermanni.
