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.

Sited on the 120 acre East Kirkcarswell Farm, near Dundrennan, South West Scotland, in deepest Galloway, the festival welcomes families, and features two main stages, as well as a dance area, acoustic tent, a campsite, trade stalls, alternative area, bars, and food stalls.
