New Wave rock band Vukovi and electric trio Roman Nose headline Friday and Saturday respectively, joined by some of the most exciting up and coming Scottish acts around, including Fat Goth, Vigo Thieves and Fake Major.

Glasgow four-piece Vukovi promise of a raucous performance, having earned a reputation for storming live sets, with sold out shows throughout Glasgow. Vukovi will be joined by energetic electro act Teklo, dubbed ‘One to Watch’ by the BBC.

On Saturday, the Solus tent will pick up the pace with masked trio Roman Nose who write, produce and direct their own tech-electro stage shows. Also announced for Saturday are hotly tipped act Vigo Thieves, a Wishaw band who use driven beats, explosive synthesisers and soaring emotionally charged vocals to produce epic songs which echo the likes of New Order and U2.

Other line-up additions include Woodenbox,  Fat Goth, Solareye, RUNGS, Honeyblood, Siobhan Wilson, Behold the Old Bear, Young Philadelphia, Flutes, Fake Major, Machines in Heaven, Bears Arms, Kayce One and Toni Smoke, Vasa, The Recovery and Saint Max and the Fanatics.

The goNORTH Festival Tour Tent will also be making a return to Wickeman in 2013 to showcase the best emerging talent from the Highlands and Islands, other parts of Scotland, the rest of the UK, and a selection of international contenders. 

Acts are invited to apply to be part of goNORTH via their website, with submissions closing on 1st April 2013.

The Wickerman Festival returns to Dundrennan, Scotland from 26th - 27th July 2013. Headliners include Primal Scream, Amy McDonald, KT Tunstall, Public Service Broadcasting, Dexys and more. See the full Wickerman line-up
