“Electric Fields is all about bringing the best music to our audience in this incredible location,” says festival co-founder Nick Roberts. “We’re proud to welcome these amazing bands to the lineup. They each bring something unique and powerful to a bill that we think is the best for music lovers, and the best value, anywhere in the country this summer.”
They join headliners Primal Scream, who’ll be back from their enforced break, and The Charlatans on the grounds of the 17th century Drumlanrig Castle in Dumfries & Galloway between August 26th-27th.
The festival chiefs have also revealed its second stage will be renamed The Stewart Cruikshank Stage in memory of the new music champion and BBC radio producer who died earlier this year.
“Stewart Cruikshank was a true Scottish music hero,” Roberts continues. “He was part of the fabric of music radio in Scotland and the UK for 35 years, giving a much-needed platform to new bands from Scotland and bringing us the best new music from wherever he could find it.”
