Wickerman Festival, Auchencairn

For many years this music Festival has been the main cultural annual event in Dunfries and Galloway, held in July or 18,000 revellers! Its motto was ‘its better than it needs to be’!

This custom started in 2001 as the teenagers who enjoyed the cult British horror film ‘The Wicker Man’ of 1973 became influential adults. It was staged in a natural amphitheatre of 120 acres in Galloway. As a smaller version of Glastonbury it had an eclectic mixture of music including Rock and Reggae, Punk and Soul. The Festival climaxed on the Saturday night with the burning of a giant 30ft Wicker Man, built by local craftsmen. It ended in 2016 after the unexpected death of the landowner, Jamie Gilroy, and a lack of funds.
