Dizzee Rascal, The Feeling, Martha Reeves and The Vandellas, The Zombies and Big Country have been announced as main stage acts for this year’s Wickerman festival.
Spawning a plethora of badly-punned headlines, the Friday night set on July 25th will be the only Scottish festival appearance in 2014 from Dizzee (or Mr Rascal to you).
Martha Reeves and the Vandellas appear as part of a tour to tour to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the release of their biggest hit, ‘Dancing in the Street’, while another veteran combo, The Zombies, also make their first appearance at Dundrennan – the band, unusually for one with such a long lineage, still featuring original members including founders Colin Blundstone and Rod Argent. They join Fife legends Big Country on the bill alongside local indie Finding Albert, and Dundonians Model Aeroplanes (recent winners in the ‘Best Newcomer’ category at the Scottish Alternative Music Awards).
More details to follow, including the Scooter and (obviously) Solus Tent lineups.
