MOTOWN superstars Martha Reeves and the Vandellas and chart-topping rapper Dizzee Rascal will lead an all-star cast of headliners at the Wickerman Festival in the Scottish Borders.

Scottish legends Big Country are also set to play at the Dundrennan-based music festival, which takes place on 25 and 26 July.

Martha Reeves and the Vandellas, famous for a string of hits including Nowhere To Run, Heat Wave and Jimmy Mack, will appear at Wickerman as part of the 50th anniversary of the group’s biggest hit, Dancing In The Streets.

Award-winning rapper Dizzee Rascal, making his only Scottish festival appearance this year at Wickerman, will deliver his brand of high-energy hits such as Bonkers, Holiday and I Luv U.

Other headliners announced for the festival include Brit Award nominated band The Feeling and English rockers The Zombies.

More acts are due to be announced in the coming weeks, organisers say.

The festival, which has topped 20,000 attendees in previous years and sold out last year, has attracted acts such as the Fun Lovin’ Criminals, Candi Station, The Human League, Texas and Idlewild, among others.
