The Wickerman Festival has announced The Waterboys as one of its main headliners for 2015’s event.

The July musical extravaganza, taking place at Dundrennan on Friday 24th and Saturday 25th, also has Tom Odell and Example slated to appear on the main Summerisle Stage, as well as DJ Wire (a previous collaborator with Example, and not to be confused with ‘Wire DJs’, which to be honest would be a disappointment anyway).

The Waterboys are to play hits from across their back catalogue was well as tunes from their most recent album ‘Modern Blues’.

The festival has taken to social media to point out that these are only initial announcements and many more acts are yet to be confirmed. It should also be noted that Synergy Concerts are now involved with the promotion, and their background in niche and underground music should mean that more alternative acts should appear on the bill.
