We are mere days from Wickerman 2015 and the excitement is building. Lots of people I know are going down for the first time, attracted by the fantastic eclectic line-up featuring the likes of the Stereo MC's, Neneh Cherry, Jimmy Cliff, BMX Bandits, Lulu, The Waterboys and Sugarhill Gang.
I've blogged about 20 artists to look out for at Wickerman HERE (before the additions of The Vaselines and Admiral Fallow).
There is a whole host of things going on at Wickerman other than music though. This year includes the addition of Maggie's Centres as the official charity partner and they will be raising awareness of their work throughout the weekend in a special tent. Lulu will be making a guest appearance there through the weekend.
Here are 10-things that you might stumble across over the course of the weekend;
1. Maggie's Centres tent
I used to work for Maggie's and I am extremely fond and passionate about the charity which helps so many people to live with, through and beyond cancer. The charity was the brainchild of Maggie Jencks and the Jencks family still have firm roots in Dumfries, so it is fitting that they are the charity partner of Wickerman. Pop into their tent for some taster sessions and a chat with the team. If you are lucky you might get in for Lulu's special performance.
2. Lots of people wearing waistcoats
