Doune The Rabbit Hole Festival Expands Line Up!


August 22-25 2013

The Cardross Estate, Port of Menteith, Stirlingshire, FK8 3JY

There are some wonderful additions to the line up of Doune The Rabbit Hole Festival, the small scale family friendly event which takes place over the weekend of Aug 22-25th at Cardross Estate, near Port of Menteith, Stirlingshire.

Cult Canadian electronic musician Aaron Funk AKA Venetian Snares will now join the line up on Sunday August 25th. Adding to the already kaleidoscopically eclectic bill, Planet Mu Records’ Venetian Snares take drum ‘n’ bass and breakcore to a new level.

On Sunday we also have funky Afrobeats from Samba Sene & Diwan, a seven-piece international Senegalese band currently based in Scotland.

Eclectic folk-rock band Trembling Bells and hypercolour indie dance producer- performer Miaoux Miaoux play the Baino stage on Friday; On Saturday we welcome back the indescribably mad and brilliant Colonel Mustard & The Dijon 5 and it's also the return of John Knox Sex Club; On Sunday, rambunctious funk rock fusion outfit Bar Room Crawl play, also on the Baino stage.

The festival has also added a dance-themed performance space for live acts and DJs, curated by Glasgow’s Low End Collective. Acts include techno DJ Rebecca Vasmant, Glasgow hip hop duo Hector Bizerk, reggae soundsystem Argonaut Sounds and a plethora of Scottish talent over a range of styles to keep visitors dancing all weekend. We also have the Inspire new local talent stage, a spoken word bill and loads of activites for younger visitors – all together a great weekend.

This year there is even an extra mini line up on Thursday night – featuring Orkestra del Sol, at no extra cost to those arriving early.

These acts join those already on the bill – including Alasdair Roberts & Friends, Clinic, The Pastels, PAWS, Rachel Sermanni, Machines In Heaven, Stealing Sheep, Zs, Robyn Hitchcock, Arbouretum and many more.

Cosmic Dead will now play on Sunday and Mother Ganga will now appear with their project Flaccid House!
