With over 40 albums and a Mercury Prize nomination to his name there is no doubting the quality of this years headliner. Also new to the bill is Blanck Mass, who will be headlining The Skinny magazine’s stage, joined by Leeds alt outfit Vessels, Catholic Action, Birdhead, Fat Goth, United Fruit and Outblinker. The Skinny celebrate their 10 year anniversary this year with the birthday bumps kicking off at Electric Fields. The carefully curated stage is an ode to the past 10 years, expect a couple more surprises and a mystery guest or two down the line…

“To have someone like King Creosote headline Electric Fields in just our second year is unreal, we are so happy to have him leading the line. To have such an iconic musician close the day at such an iconic location is something special. We’re also delighted to announce the first names for The Skinny stage, the likes of Blanck Mass and Vessels mean we have an even wider array of artists on the bill, and we’re looking forward to starting the mags 10th anniversary celebrations with us!” – Alex Roberts, Electric Fields Festival Director.

XFM Scotland’s Drivetime presenter Jim Gellatly said: “The inaugural Electric Fields last year was an amazing experience in a brilliant setting. It was fantastic to see so many emerging Scottish bands fill a festival bill. The booking policy is second to none, and it’s the perfect fit for XFM in supporting the incredible new music coming out of Scotland at the moment. I can’t wait to return to Drumlanrig Castle!”
