Headliners The Cat Empire lead the first acts confirmed for this year's Eden Festival which happens for a sixth year from Friday 11th until Sunday 14th June 2015 at Raehills Meadows, Moffat, Dumfries and Galloway, in Scotland.

The six-piece funk fusion band from Australia will be whipping the crowd into a frenzy of giggling, grooving, and swaying. Also announced today are Grandmaster Flash, and Ms Dynamite.

Director Meredith Langley Vine said, "Every year we go bigger and bolder and this time round it’s no different. We have plenty more surprises to reveal over the next couple of months so keep your eyes peeled. The line up this year includes a lot of new music for the smaller stages and headliners The Cat Empire have a universal appeal. They are a band that we have wanted to host since the festival started in 2009, so we are exceptionally delighted to have them at the top of the bill this year."

Family friendly festival with activities and workshops throughout the day time brings the biggest line up to date. Experience over 250 acts performing across 9 stages, the first of which have been revealed as Aphrodite, The Skints, Submotion Orchestra, Portico, Mungos Hi Fi, Ghetto Funk All Stars, JFB, Featurecast, Alpines, Dub Mafia, Kahn & Neek, Gypsy Disco, Nubiyan Twist, Afriquoi, Age Of Glass, The Undercover Hippy, Asbo Disco, Too Many T's, Father Funk, Cut Capers, Badger Badger, King Lagoons Flying Swordfish Dance Band, Tantz, Monster Ceilidh Band, and Gerry Cinnamon.
