This year’s Wickerman Festival has been cancelled by the organisers with full refunds being given to those who have already bought tickets.

Wickerman Festival Director Jennie Camm said : “Following the hugely successful running of The Wickerman Festival in 2015, which followed shortly after the death of the event’s co-founder Jamie Gilroy, the Wickerman Festival organisers have decided to take a year off this year.

“The event will go ahead in 2017 and plans are already taking shape.

“The organisers are grateful for the kind messages and loyal support from all Wicker fans and look forward to announcing further details about the 2017 festival shortly.”

Meanwhile people who have purchased early bird tickets for 2016 will be refunded automatically by Skiddle. The Wickerman Festival website, and social media will be regularly updated to outline plans for 2017.
