Organisers of the popular Wickerman music festival have revealed the festival will not go ahead in 2016.

Following the hugely successful running of The Wickerman Festival in 2015, which followed shortly after the death of the event’s co-founder Jamie Gilroy, the Wickerman Festival organisers have decided to take a year off in 2016.

The event will go ahead in 2017 and plans are already taking shape. The organisers are grateful for the kind messages and loyal support from all Wicker fans and look forward to announcing further details about the 2017 festival shortly."

– Wickerman Festival Director Jennie Camm
