Fence bash returns

Fence Collective have confirmed the bulk of the line up for this year's instalment of Homegame.

Homegame is one of the secret treasures of the Scottish music scene. Held in a beautiful Fife village, the line up utilises church halls and school assembly rooms as impromptu venues for the Fence Collective and beyond.

Oh, and did we mention that there's an award winning chip shop nearby?

Broadening its focus in recent years, Homegame has started recruiting from beyond the ranks of the Fence Collective. The cult Scottish folkies still appear en masse, but this year electronic artists and even comedians are set to appear.

Having recent released 'Diamond Mine' with King Creosote - an album inspired by Anstruther - Jon Hopkins is due to travel to Scotland once again. Joining the producer on the train from Kings Cross will be the acclaimed producer Nathan Fake.

Elsewhere, American troubadour Josh T Pearson will re-emerge from the shadows at Homegame following the success of his debut solo album. Set to perform at the unique Scottish event, the singer will be joined by the likes of Withered hand, Viva Stereo and plenty more.

Fence regulars such as King Creosote will appear, while sets have been confirmed from OnTheFly and of course head honcho The Pictish Trail.

Broadening its bill yet again, this year's Homegame stretches from Anstruther to nearby (and equally picturesque) village Cellardyke. Speaking to The List, The Pictish Trail said: "Given its reputation, you'd have thought that after 8 years the event would have developed into some burgeoning Glastonbury-sized juggernaut. But it hasn't. And that's probably what makes it so great."

Tickets are like gold dust, and promptly sold out within a half hour of going on sale at the tail end of last year.

Homegame runs between May 6th - 8th.
