Ceilidhs, kilts and history

The Wickerman Festival will be launching two new features this summer to celebrate its partnership with Homecoming Scotland 2014 – a Lowland Links tent and the festival’s first kilted Wickerman.

To bring the Wickerman’s Southern Scottish roots to life, the new Lowland Links Tent will showcase the region’s unique culture through music mixed with interactive entertainment and local history.

It will also play host to an energetic ceilidh at the end of each day to help Wicker fans get into the swing of the Lowland’s spirit. Local heritage experts, crafts and intriguing artefacts will also feature in the tent throughout the weekend.

The Wicker Man himself will add a uniquely Scottish touch dressed in a striking kilt woven from willow.

Tickets for the Wickerman Festival are on sale now, with acts such as Dizzee Rascal, Del Amitri, The Feeling and Martha Reeves and The Vandellas.

More acts are still to be announced.
