East Kirkcarswell, South West Scotland
Boldly mixing established, emerging and retro artists with top DJs playing until 5am, the Wickerman Festival (20th & 21st July) is set to be one of the hottest parties of the summer.
Headliners Scissor Sisters and Texas make their only UK festival appearance this year, with main stage acts including The View, Cast, Newton Faulkner, Levellers, Dog is Dead, The Heartbreaks, Bwani Junction, Finding Albert and Jenny O.
Ten stages overall include the expanded punk and ska driven Scooter Tent, hosting legends The Blockheads, Bad Manners, The Skints and the US’ first ska act The Toasters. Solus presents the finest grassroots talent, headlined by Human Don’t Be Angry (Malcolm Middleton) and United Fruit and with Beerjacket, Chris Devotion and the Expectations, Martin John Henry and The Birthday Suit also amongst those performing.
Steve Lawler, Darren Emerson, Yousef, Jordan Suckley, and Crazy P will whip the crowd into a spin at dance village, ‘Bass Camp’, and a DJ set from Mike Skinner will keep the party stoked until the early hours after the spectacular burning of the 40ft Wickerman statue.
Other acts include Rachel Sermanni, Artmagic, Goldblade, Sharks and many more! The stunning festival site is located within easy reach of major cities, with buses travelling directly to the camping entrance.
As a reward for music fans ticket prices for 2012 have also been frozen at 2011 levels and weekend camping tickets are as a little as £90 at Skiddle.com.
