Eden Festival, one of Scotland’s best-loved family-friendly music events, can now reveal its main headliners for 2024, plus a beguiling array of musicians, DJ’s, and artists also on the line-up.
Mali’s Husband and Wife musical duo, Amadou & Mariam have been mixing their Afrobeat influence with Jazz and Funk for crowds at Green Man, Lollapalooza, Cambridge Folk Festival, Coachella and Glastonbury, spreading World music via their albums such as Welcome To Mali and Dimanche A Bamako. Global sounds for the soul and the feet!
As one of the most renowned names in UK Dance music since the early 90’s, Neil Barnes will be bringing his box of awe-inspiring tunes to Galloway for a Leftfield DJ set…with the odd banger thrown in. As part of the original early 60’s British Invasion across America, from The Zombies, featuring original members Rod Argent and Colin Blunstone, expect to hear some true Psychedelic-infused Pop from hits like ‘Time of the Season’ and ‘She’s not there’. Iconic status is a given.
