Organiser of Stendhal Festival of Art, Ross Parkhill, commented: "I am absolutely thrilled at being able to announce some of the names that we have done today, he said. Frightened Rabbit are a band we have been following for some time now and are incredibly excited to have them on the bill this year. They are a band that have an already stellar back catalogue of songs and have the potential to be one of the biggest things in British Music; they are that good.
"There is nothing I can really say about the Undertones that hasn't been said before. They are true musical royalty in our part of the world and to have an act of their calibre coming along to play Stendhal is a delight for us.
"Add to that the talents of Paddy Casey, Bronagh Gallagher, Tucan and everyone else we have announced so far and this year's line-up is shaping up to be perhaps the best one we have had at Stendhal."
Combining music, art, dance, sculpture, poetry, and a host of other activities, this is a family friendly event that embraces the ethos of community, discovering different genres of art and above all, having a good time.
In addition to the music programmed over four stages, Stendhal Festival will also play host to a varied family programme of events for the kids to enjoy, art work, sculpture, a craft market, digital art installations, a fun fair and many more wee surprises.
The early bird offer has ended. Tickets are priced at £38 for a weekend camping pass and £60 for a family weekend camping pass (2 adults and up to 4 kids under 18).
