Patti Smith and Band, Yard Act, and Orbital are among a long list of acts to join the Doune the Rabbit Hole lineup for this July’s edition of the Stirlingshire festival.

The four-day event takes place at Cardross Estate, near the Lake of Mentieth in Stirlingshire, from Thursday 14 – Sunday 17 July 2022, having been postponed for the past two years owing to the pandemic.

Most of the previously-announced lineup are still in place, with Belle & Sebastian, Sleaford Mods, Teenage Fanclub, John Cale, Camera Obscura and 10cc all on an as-ever eclectic bill which now includes DJ Craig Charles as well as disco legends Boney M.

Among the coups for what is now the third-biggest festival in the country is the only Scottish festival date for Patti Smith and Band, who perform following the release of Patti’s new album ‘Banga’.

Leeds quartet Yard Act’ confirmation is timely as the band battle for the number ine album spot with their debut ‘The Overload’ this month.

Four-piece Boney M., led by original member Maizie Williams, will perform classics such as ‘Rasputin’, ‘Rivers of Babylon’ and ‘Daddy Cool’ amongst others and Craig Charles brings his funk n’ Soul club to the site mirroring his popular Radio 2 show.

The festival line-up also features New Orleans band Hurrah for the Riff Raff fronted by Alynda Segarra; eighty-five year old American folk legend Peggy Seeger; Tide Lines, the first unsigned band to sell out Glasgow’s Kelvingrove Bandstand; Charlatans frontman and Listening Party host Tim Burgess DJ’s from his extensive record collection and a host of Scottish artists complete the bill such as Honeyblood, Sacred Paws, The Rezillos, The Bluebells and Bis.

Festival director Jamie Murray said: “We’re delighted to be able to present the lineup for this year’s Doune the Rabbit Hole. We have pulled together a long weekend featuring international artists, hotly tipped bands, bands rolled over from Doune 2020 and Doune 2021, DJs across the music spectrum and party acts to form what we think is an unbeatable festival.experience this July.

“Again, I’d like to thank all of the Doune the Rabbit Hole festival goers who have rolled over their tickets from both 2020 and 2021. As an independent festival, your support has been invaluable through the pandemic. We can’t wait to be back on-site to welcome Doune festival goers returning after two years of not being able to present the festival.”

All of those who have retained tickets for the postponed 2020 and 2021 festivals will be able to use these for the 2022 festival and Doune the Rabbit Hole will honour free tickets for children who were 12 or under at the time of the 2020 or 2021 festival.
