Locally-grown talent including Roddy Woomble, Meursault and PAWS join Mali’s Songhoy Blues and LA electro-punk trio Liars on the line-up of this year’s Doune The Rabbit Hole festival.

The three-day event takes place at Cardross Estate from August 18th – 20th and also features Start to End performing Daft Punk’s ‘Discovery’, upcoming Scottish acts Pronto Mama, The Vegan Leather and Happy Meals, plus appearances from Jenny Hval, Sage Francis and B Dolan (Epic Beard Men), and US Hip Hop duo Ho99o9.

Plus, six-time time world snooker champion and prog rock fan Steve Davis headlines the Baino stage on the Friday night, offering “two hours of bangers and one hour of loved up floating trippy stuff to wind down that is pshycadelic heaven”.

The festival, which started in 2010 at Doune Castle, has a capacity of just 3,000, and has been voted one of the UK’s top 6 family friendly festivals by The Guardian as well as one of the 11 most fabulous music festivals in the UK by Tripadvisor.
