    Wickerman’s Iconic 2014 Statue Unveiled

    WATCH THE VIDEO OF THE MAKING HERE: https://vimeo.com/101347716

    With only a few days to go until Scotland’s hottest summer party welcomes its first campers on site, the Wickerman Festival is delighted to reveal its iconic 2014 statue. For the first time the statue has been expertly hand sculpted in an gravity defying highland fling pose and is dressed in a striking kilt woven from willow.

    Created to celebrate the Festival’s partnership with Homecoming Scotland, Wickerman’s famous icon will add a uniquely Scottish touch to this year’s seasoned music event and act as a distinct marker for visitors.  Towering 40ft above the picturesque festival site, the Wickerman statue is as iconic as the event itself, and is spectacularly set alight every year in an unforgettable festival finale.

    Tickets for the Wickerman Festival are on sale now with acts such as Dizzee Rascal, Del Amitri, Shed 7, The Feeling, Alabama 3, Martha Reeves and The Vandellas, The Zombies, British Sea Power, Big Country and Augustines lined up to play.
