Nicola Black, Wickerman's Acoustic Booker commented, "Wickerman’s Acoustic Village has become a popular attraction at the Festival due to its mix of emerging talent and established acts. Offering something for everyone, fans can unwind, enjoy a jam or discover some lively new acts in the much-loved area."
The Acoustic Village’s Barabajagal Yurt will also provide a place for Wicker fans to jam and make music with other people. This year it will play host to storyteller and musician Susi Sweetpea and Greywacke who will host a series of percussion sessions each day.
As always, the weekend festivities will be brought to a spectacular close with the crowd-gathering tradition of burning the 40ft Wickerman statue at midnight on Saturday.
