Wickerman Festival

Recommended Posts

Anyone planning on going this year?

Just a few of the confirmed acts are The Orb, Eat Static (ex ozric tentacles members), Jah Wobble, Steve Hillage, The Yardbirds, The Beat, The Peatbog Faeries, and I am Kloot.

The Orb, Eat Static, Jah Wobble and Mr Hillage is enough already for me to go along!

Hillage is apparantly going without System 7. I assume this can only mean he's doing the Steve Hillage Band set. Oh the pleasure. "It's all too much!"

System 7 were great last year. So was the whole experience, I'll be going along but half of me doent want to in case its not as good.

Yeah they were great, but Eat Static will be playing after the Wickerman burning and they are to match. Saw them play with System 7 in Amsterdam recently, and they are excellent. More Spacey/Psytrancey than System 7.

didnt see the x-certs, saw Copy Haho though, they were well on form. Did manage to somehow end up watching a band fronted by Domonik Diamond, which were absolutelly terrible.

The Orb and Easy Star All Stars were totall highlights though. Its gonna be hard going back to work on Tuesday.

i was there on friday - pity didnt get to see many bands, as my sister got married at the festival! what i did see was ace, distinctly good lack of neds and a friendly atmosphere.

the way festivals should be !

Yeah that was mental. The Orb and Easy Star All Stars definately the highlights for me. Eat Static were also good, but i was a little let down by Jah Wobble's set. Seemed a bit lacking and unrehearsed.

God the Reggae tent was also fantastic. Infact, so many of the DJs at the festival were brilliant.

Bring on next year!
