The cogs at Scotland’s Wildfire Festival 2016 have already begun to turn and just 7 weeks after 2015’s highly successful 3-dayer closed it’s doors, the first crop of bands for 2016 have been announced!

From the classic NWOBHM stylings of Soldier to the Melodic Metal of Winterstorm, Wildfire’s knack of unearthing semi-hidden gems and grizzled veterans continues.

Check out the first batch of names on the nifty little poster below….

Here’s what Wildfire had to say regarding 2016’s 5th incarnation:

From fuzzed up Blues, Dark Melodic Metal, AOR, NWOBHM, Hard and Alt. Rock, Wildfire 2016 is back with a statement of intent. We are going to bring you the biggest, greatest Rock and Metal Festival Scotland has ever seen. With a stellar line up, amazing headliners and more bands, stages and vendors than ever before! All the information is below and can be sourced directly from our website www.wildfirefestival.co.uk or from our Youtube page.

2016 sees Wildfire Festival celebrating it’s 5th Anniversary. The award winning and ONLY Rock and Metal Festival in Scotland, returns to Wiston Lodge on the 24th June 2016 for 3 days of rock and metal mayhem. With six bands already confirmed and negotiations well in hand with some major acts for 2016, it is the best reason to be in Scotland next June. From self assured Hard Rockers Apriori and Blues act Sky Vally Mistress, to NWOBHM stalwarts Soldier and AOR legends Serpentine, we have added amazing Scot’s Alt Rockers Halo Tora and Dark Melodic Metallers Winter Storm into this years, once more eclectic and high quality mix.

Festival Director Dave Ritchie says:

“We are really pulling out all the stops in 2016 with plans once more for a bigger and more varied event. We have some amazing headline acts on the way and more bands than ever before too. Our 5th Birthday is going to be something pretty special. We will even invite some of the best loved acts from our 4 previous events to help us celebrate in style!”

Wildfire Festival will be the place to be in June 2016 and early bird passes are available now and selling fast! Act now or forever hang your head in shame!
