WICKERMAN festival is a mere six weeks away and is set to build momentum this month with a preview evening in the heart of Glasgow.

Pitching up in the newest kid on the Sauchiehall Street block, Broadcast- the festival is hosting an evening of good music and we have tickets for the event to give away to top it all off.

The Wickerman Festival, in association with Sunday Herald newspaper, will be bringing one of Scotland’s hottest summer parties to Glasgow as it hosts its first Wicker Warm-Up gig.

Launched to bring the flavour of the Festival to the city, the Wicker Warm-Up will take place on Thursday 27th June. Hosted by In:Demand Uncut DJ Jim Gellatly, the voice of new music in Scotland, the night will be headlined by Scottish indie band Finding Albert and include performances from three of Scotland’s best unsigned bands.

Wickerman favourites Finding Albert are set to deliver an electrifying live performance at the gig playing tracks from their new album Feints which was released in March this year. Their distinctive blend of rock and electronica has attracted comparisons to Muse and Kasabian and brought the Dumfries five piece critical acclaim.

Joining them will be three finalists from the Sunday Herald’s popular unsigned band competition who will each liven up the crowd with a set on stage. Back for the second year, the competition champions new Scottish talent offering the winning band the main stage opening slot at this year’s Wickerman Festival. The three finalists, who will be voted for by the public, will compete at the Wicker Warm-Up where the winning band will also be announced. Sunday Herald Editor, Richard Walker, will also take to the stage to keep the dance floor moving with a DJ set.

Wickerman is one of the UK’s best-loved independent music festivals and is now entering its 12th consecutive year. With ten stages featuring an eclectic and exciting mix of leading artists, alternative acts and up and coming talent, the two day summer party caters for all musical tastes.
