Doune the Rabbit Hole has announced an innovative ticketing scheme for this year’s event, which takes place from August 22-24 at Cardross Estate, Port of Menteith.

Organisers need a variety of festival-related stuff, like a caravan, tents, yurts, generators, lights, furniture and decorations.
So, website now includes a ‘Barter’ page, allowing prospective festival-goers to either trade or lend something in return for tickets.

Artistic director Jamie Murray said: “You’d be surprised how many people have an old caravan kicking about that they don’t know what to do with.
“If they aren’t using it and would like a free festival ticket or two then we’d be very happy to do a trade.

In musical news, joining Jeffrey Lewis, Acid Mother’s Temple, and Secret Chiefs 3 (a project by former members of Faith No More and Mr Bungle) are a host of new additions to the bill: The Amphetameanies, The Birthday Suit, Hector Bizerk, Blochestra, Errors, RM Hubbert, Kakatsitsi Drummers & Rebecca Vasmant, PAWS, Tom Snowball, Paddy Steer, The Telescopes, Trembling Bells, Samba Ya Bamba, Zea.
