Falkirk songwriter Adam Stafford has been revealed as one of the acts who will perform at this year’s Doune the Rabbit Hole festival.

The event, now in its fifth year, began life at Duncarron Medieval Village near Denny but now takes place at the Cardross Estate in Port of Menteith.

Doune the Rabbit Hole aims to be a family-friendly, environmentally-aware alternative to the bigger music festivals.

Stafford released his second solo album, ‘Imaginary Walls Collapse’, last year to critical acclaim.

This year’s line-up also includes Scottish folk-electro players the Peatbog Faeries, Japanese psych-rockers Acid Mother’s Temple and American DIY hero Jeffrey Lewis.

Festival organiser Lucy Brouwer said: “With RockNess, The Insider and The Big Tent festivals all being cancelled, Doune The Rabbit Hole offers a chance to relax, have fun and discover some amazing new music whilst basking in the glorious Stirlingshire countryside for a whole weekend.

“Many of the artists will be hosting workshops or master-classes at the event with the focus of the festival angled towards getting people involved.”

The festival takes place from August 22-24. For ticket and travel details, visit www.dounetherabbithole.co.uk.
