Message from The Wickerman organisers 

Following the hugely successful running of The Wickerman Festival in 2015, which followed shortly after the death of the event’s co-founder Jamie Gilroy, the Wickerman Festival organizers have decided to take a year off in 2016. The event will go ahead in 2017 and plans are already taking shape. The organisers are grateful for the kind messages and loyal support from all Wicker fans. Wickerman 2017 will take place on the 21st & 22nd July

Meanwhile people who have purchased early bird tickets for 2016 will be refunded automatically by Skiddle. The Wickerman Festival website, and social media, will be regularly updated to outline plans for 2017



We don't know if it's the rolling countryside, the glorious weather, the ten stages of entertainment providing a mixture of punk, rock, indie and electro and a unique blend of everything in between; or a 35ft Wickerman that makes The Wickerman Festival so special. What we do know, is that we return every year for another snippet of madness, and will do again in July 2016.

Set in the glorious Kirkcudbrightshire countryside with views across the county and out over the sea to the Isle of Man, it's a breathtaking sight that has to be witnessed to be believed.

It’s an ideal first time festival, a family friendly festival, in fact, its more than just a festival. Its more comparable to an adventure, where you are likely to make new friends along the way, have experiences that will stay with you for a long time to come, and get to watch some of your favourite bands at the same time. It’s something that is unlikely to be reproduced anywhere else!

Those looking to explore a hedonistic mix of on-stage entertainment whilst the kids are entertained by story telling, circus tricks and cinema have found their destination for Summer 2016. Boasting ten stages on the site with music playing from midday until 5.00 am, you will be catered for, whatever your tastes.

Ultimately, Wickerman would not be Wickerman if we didn't set something on fire...if you want to see what, be there at midnight on Saturday night. You won't be disappointed.

Disabled Access Information

Wickerman Festival Disabled Access and Information

The Wickerman Festival make every effort to ensure the festival site is as accessible as possible for all disabled ticket holders. However, we must point out that the Wickerman is an outdoor event held on grass farmland and as such there are natural hills and dips which make the ground uneven in areas. This may present challenges for those with serious mobility issues and wheelchairs.

All tents and stages are accessible to wheelchair users without too much difficulty, however, in the event of rain the ground may become muddy making access more problematic.

There are disabled toilets located throughout the site.

We do not have an official wheelchair charging point, however, anyone wishing this facility should visit the first aid points on site. 

Disabled Car Park

Only vehicles with a blue badge can park in the disabled camping area. This area is also the disabled camping area. 

Disabled Camping

The disabled camping area (and car park) is a designated area positioned adjacent to the quiet campsite. Blue badge holders can park their cars next to their tents, all other cars will require to be parked within the main car park. Access to the main arena is located next to the disabled camping area and is a relatively level stretch of ground. Due to space limitations within the disabled camping area we can only permit the person with a disability to pitch their tent plus one other tent if accompanied by family or friends. 

Down 'n' Dirty Toilets & Showers

There are disabled Down ‘n’ Dirty facilities available on site. Tickets should be purchased in advance from Skiddle.com.

History of The Wickerman Festival

It all began way back in 2001, when Sid Ambrose, currently the festivals director, had the idea to make a festival just that bit different, by basing it on the classic British Horror film ?The Wicker Man?. He then teamed up with local Farmer Jamie Gilroy to decide on where such an event could be held. It was decided to hold it in East Kirkcarswell Farm, Dundrennan, where it remains until this day. The festival has always been firmly aimed at the family, providing an eclectic mixture of events and activities for all ages. Traditionally the Festival culminates in the burning of a 35 foot Wickerman, made by local craftsmen, and provides the highlight to an incredible and unique festival experience.
