2011 sees the 10th anniversary of the Wickerman Festival, Scotland’s leading ‘alternative music fesitval’.
Musically as well as creatively, the festival has been likened to a smaller version ofÂ GlastonburyÂ with a widely eclectic mix of music to suit everyone. It has several stages and these include a main stage (Summerisle), the Axis Sound System reggae sound systemtent, the Acoustic Village, a stage for punk/ska/northern soul called The Scooter Tent, The Solus Tent for new Scottish bands, several dance tents, as well as a childrenâ€™s area, workshops, beer tent, crafts, a cinema, and much more.
The 2010 event saw Ocean Colour Scene play the Saturday night headline slot before the ceremonial and spectacular burning of the Wickerman, the 808 State DJ’s then rounded off the main stage proceedings. On Friday night the Summerisle stage hosted Teenage Fanclub before a storming set from headliners The Charlatans.
