People are already flocking to this year's Wickerman Festival, in Dundrennan.

The south of Scotland's biggest music event is expected to draw a crowd of around 15,000.

Headline acts include Lulu, Example and Tom Odell.

The festival's set-piece will take place on Saturday evening, when the iconic 40-foot Wickerman, pictured below, will be set alight.
