Festival Hots Up…But Prices Frozen! 2012 Wickerman Festival Ticket Sale Launched

The Wickerman Festival is today (31st October) releasing tickets for the hotly anticipated 2012 event and with this comes an announcement that all ticket prices have been frozen at last year’s levels. This price cap is rewarding festival fans for their support and enthusiasm for one of Scotland’s most distinctive independent music festivals.

Weekend adult tickets are now available online (Skiddle.com) and will remain at £90, with weekend concessions (13-15 years) costing £45 until 30th June 2012.

The Wickerman Festival will celebrate its 11th year across two days next summer, 20th and 21st July, and promises an eclectic music line-up and exciting arts and entertainment for all ages. Past years have seen tens of thousands of revellers enjoy acts such as Ocean Colour Scene, Feeder and James, with a winning mix of acts expected to perform again next year. As always, the weekend festivities will be brought to a spectacular close with the crowd-gathering tradition of burning the 40ft Wickerman statue.

Situated on rolling farmland in Dumfries and Galloway near Kirkcudbright luxury camping options include stunning, 18ft-tall hand-made tipis, yurts and cloudhouses, where fans can glamp it up. Pitches for campervans and caravans can also be booked with or without an electric hook up and will incur no increase in cost from last year.

A vastly undiscovered corner of the south of Scotland, Galloway boasts a stunning natural landscape, historic villages and adrenalin-fuelled activities, and is easily accessible from Scotland’s central belt, northern England and Northern Ireland, with Happy Bus providing many routes to the festival next year, pick up points and prices have yet to be confirmed (happybus.co.uk).

The Wickerman Festival Coordinator, Helen Chalmers comments: ‘As we head into our second decade, The Wickerman Festival has developed a strong identity thanks to our fantastic music, beautiful surroundings, ease of access and of course the festival goers, which adds up to create the ideal festival experience and atmosphere over the weekend.

‘Last year was our tenth anniversary, and our most successful festival to date. Freezing prices at last year’s levels is our way of showing that we are dedicated to giving music fans a fantastic weekend, without breaking the bank.’
