Scottish festival Wickerman this morning announced its fancy dress theme, which this year pays homage to festival founder Jamie Gilroy and his signature look - a flamboyant festival waistcoat. The festival has even kitted its 'gateman' Wickerman statue with a bespoke waistcoat designed by Edinburgh designer Vixy Rae.

Elsewhere the festival has added a bunch more activities for 2015 including a 40 seat Wee Green Cinema and a Karaoke Taxi for all you wannabe pop stars and divas. Those out for an adrenaline fix will be well into the mobile zip wire, which offers users a high speed, bird's eye view of the festival site, much like the video above.

There's also a Granny shopping trolley dance troupe called Granny Tourismo, kangaroo dance acts, a new festival circus, storytelling sessions, sing-a-longs, art workshops, puppet shows and plenty more to keep you thoroughly entertained throughout the weekend. Head here for more on Wickerman.
