You’d imagine that SNP supporter Sandy Thom would be an automatic choice to play the Homecoming festival, but it would appear not.

Well, it is more of a dance event, conformed by the number pf times the words ‘DJ set’ appear in the following paragraphs. Anyway, Homecoming festival comes to Burns country, more-or-less, as the 2-day-danceathon happens on May 2nd and 3rd in Irvine’s Beach Park.

Confirmed acts include Tom & Gary (Snow Patrol), a Babyshambles DJ set featuring Adam Ficek, Chris Geddes (Belle and Sebastian), a Teenage FanClub DJ set ft. Norman Blake, Utah Saints DJ set, Masters at Work, Taio Cruz, Lisa Lashes, and Reverend and the Makers.
