Theme

This year's fancy dress theme is Vampires and Werewolves. Festival goers are invited to bring their Halloween costumes and get in the Hammy Horror groove for next July's fangtastic celebration of all things Fiery and Fearsome.

Twinned

The Wickerman Festival has announced a twinning agreement with the Lake of Stars Festival, in Malawi, with Wickerman Festival helping them secure a Scottish headline act. The aim of the twinning is that the festivals will work together to promote Scottish and African arts, culture and tourism, with bands from both continents having the opportunity to perform on an international stage.
