The 6th Wildfire drops the Les-Fest as it returns from Friday 23rd until Sunday 25th June at Wiston Lodge, South Lanarkshire, in Scotland.
Next year Wildfire 2017 will become the rock festival that champions new and emerging rock talent, as it announces main stage slots for 20 of Britain’s brightest emerging rock acts for next summer’s festival.
The festival will feature up to 45 new and unsigned acts over 2 stages including The Treatment, Aaron Buchanan And The Cult Classics, Gasoline Outlaws, Theia, Wearing Scars, Last Bullet, The Bad Flowers, Kane'd, Bad Touch, Eva Plays Dead, Those Damn Crows, Late Night Legacy, The Texas Flood, Pilgrim, Piston, The Fallen State, Dirty Thrills, Fireroad, Fahran, and Little Brother Eli.
Organisers feel the sheer number of new rock bands emerging from across the UK – from Scotland to Devon, Northern Ireland to South Wales, the Midlands to Brighton presents compelling evidence there is a new wave of British rock emerging – and much of this talent will not get to break unless it is given a proper platform. With new nationwide research of 2,000 rock fans, out today, revealing the biggest threat to rock music is the closure of small, grassroots venues (35%) – Wildfire aims to fill the gap by making new bands the main focus of the 2017 festival.
Entry to all three nights with weekend camping are priced at £70 or £60 without camping.
Concession ticket (for those aged 13-15 years) are priced at £15. Tickets for children (Aged 0-12 years) are priced at £1.
