Dizzee at Wickerman

Dizzee Rascal has been annouced as the headliner for this year's Wickerman Festival.

The rapper tops a bill that also includes Motown legends Martha Reeves and the Vandellas, English pop band The Feeling and veteran Scots rockers Big Country.
Festival co-ordinator Helen Chalmers said: "We are delighted that Dizzee Rascal will be joining the party this year, his live performances are incredible and I can't wait to see the crowd's reaction to his headline set.
"From hip hop, pop, folk to motown and alternative rock, this year's line up will once again be a truly diverse offering and we look forward to announcing further exciting additions including our Saturday night headliner over the coming weeks."
The independent festival is taking place for the 13th time at East Kirkcarswell Farm in Dundrennan, Dumfries and Galloway, where cult classic The Wicker Man was filmed in 1973.
The event, which runs from 25-26 July, concludes each year with the burning of a 40ft wicker man.
Best known for his number one hits Dance Wiv Me, Bonkers, Holiday, Dirtee Disco and Shout, Dizzee Rascal is an English MC, songwriter and record producer with Ghanaian and Nigerian roots. His debut album Boy In Da Corner won him the 2003 Mercury Prize.
The Zombies will perform some of their 1960s hits, such as She's Not There while Big Country are marking the 30th anniversary of their classic album Steeltown.
The bands Finding Albert, from Dumfries and Galloway, and Model Aeroplanes, from Dundee, will also play at the festival.
