The Solas Festival has announced We Were Promised Jetpacks as headliners for the Saturday night of the three day festival, which takes place from 21st – 23rd June at The Bield at Blackruthven, near Perth.
Also confirmed are The Music Tapes – a Neutral Milk Hotel side-project – and Scottish psychedelic poppers Haight Ashbury. Previously announced acts for the mixed-arts event include Karine Polwart, Rick Redbeard, Liz Lochhead, and Louise Welsh.

The festival also has a preview gig, of sorts, at Glasgow’s Glad Cafe on Friday the 5th of April. The evening mixes poetry and music, with William Letford, Siobhan Wilson, Oldsolar, and Kite and the Krane. (THere’s also an Edinburgh showcase on the 13th of April, details to follow).
