ULTIMATE party band Sister Sledge is set to headline this year’s Doune the Rabbit Hole festival.

Seminal punk legends The Damned have also been added to the summer bill and this will, so far, be the only chance for fans of both bands to see them live on stage in Scotland during the warmer months.

The eclectic family-and-dog-friendly music and arts event is set to take place for the 10th time between Friday and Sunday, July 19-21, with dozens of acts already confirmed.

One of the earliest space rock groups have also been added to the line up in Hawkwind, whose 50th anniversary UK tour will start at Doune.

Also coming along for a performance are the Asian Dub Foundation with their only Scottish date at the festival.

Scottish musician and composer C Duncan as well as Welsh-Cornish musician Gwenno have also been confirmed for the event at Cardross Estate

Jamie Murray, festival director, said: “Our final headliners, Sister Sledge and The Damned, cement what is the strongest line up yet for our 10th birthday festival.

“These are the only Scottish dates for both bands this summer. We’re also proud to welcome the original space rock band Hawkwind who are celebrating an incredible 50 years in the music industry which co-incidentally synergises with the 50th anniversary of the moon landings.

“We’ve also added to the bill some of the most exciting UK artists out there from C Duncan to Gwenno and The Murder Capital.

“This year, we’ve doubled capacity, we’re building a strong talks programme, which will include the brilliant Scottish spoken word event Sonnet Youth and we’ve also unveiled many of the family activities.

“As a reminder, we’re proud to continue our under 12s go free policy with weekend tickets for under 18s priced at just £30 including camping, ensuring Doune the Rabbit Hole is one of the best value festivals in the UK for families.”
