PREVIEW: Doune the Rabbit Hole adds more acts!

Along with an animated video featuring the current lineup, Doune the Rabbit Hole announced some additions to their already brilliant lineup in the last few days. 

Cult Canadian electronic musician Aaron Funk AKA Venetian Snares heads up the additions and will play 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. Also on the Sunday festival goers will be treated to funky Afrobeats from Samba Sene & Diwan, a seven-piece international Senegalese band currently based in Scotland as well as rambunctious funk rock fusion outfit Bar Room Crawl play on the Baino stage.

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 John Knox Sex Club make their return to the scene, to the joy of this blogrunner. 

These additions follow up the announce that 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. 

And it all begins one day earlier this year with an extra mini line up on Thursday night – featuring Orkestra del Solat 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! July are unfortunately no longer able to join us on Sunday due to illness. Zun Zun Egui, The Wellgreen and Flamingods are also no longer performing due to other commitments.
