With only a couple of months to go until the Wickerman Festival, organisers have announced the latest additions to the event’s stages.
Britpop indie rock band Shed Seven will join the Friday night Summerisle Stage bill. The chart-topping five-piece will delve into their extensive back catalogue and perform tracks from their four best selling studio albums. Their electrifying live performance is set to be a definite hit with the UK’s friendliest festival crowd. Also contributing to Friday’s main stage mix will be American rock group Augustines.
Joining them will be London-based folk act Skinny Lister and Sheffield band The Hosts. Punk group LIFE will create a Summerisle storm on the Saturday with their punchy guitar hooks and poetic pop lyrics.
Turning up the heat on the much loved Acoustic Village will be the esteemed Roddy Woomble, who will headline Friday night along with his band. The front man of Scottish rock band Idlewild, his reflective storytelling and evocative sound has secured his reputation as one of Britain’s finest contemporary folk artists. Also playing on the Friday will be John Smith. Lauded local folk hero Emily Smith makes her debut appearance at Wickerman this year and is certain to beguile the audience.
The legendary Scooter Tent bill will be enhanced by west coast ska veterans Skarsoles. The original and lively six-piece are pros on the British ska scene and promise to get Wicker fans jumping.
