Two headliners have been announced for the MugStock Music Festival, including worldwide million album selling band Dodgy.

Other acts also confirmed include an exclusive UK performance by Californian world fusion band Beats Antique. The groups are among the latest to confirm they will be playing the new boutique festival near Milngavie from August 7-9.

Director Alan Govan said: “We are over the moon to announce such a world class line-up for our first festival. Dodgy were the reason I bleached my hair blonde in the 90s. They are one of the all time great festival bands. Headliners Beats Antique may be a new name to many but in the USA they are absolutely massive, and I am delighted to be able to bring them to Scotland for the first time. I have no hesitation in saying that their virtuosic Saturday live show will be the best thing most of us see this year.

“We have also been humbled by the number and quality of acts from closer to home who have offered to play at the festival. We have had over 200 applications and it has opened my eyes to the incredible vibrancy of the Scottish music scene”

The ever growing line-up features an eclectic mix of music from folk, funk, rock, jazz and dance through to world, reggae, and electro-swing. Additional activities for all ages have been planned including hula-hoopers, science activities, dance sessions and even a one man band.

Festival favourites Dodgy reached the heady heights of fame during the Britpop era of the ‘90s. After selling out Brixton Academy on 3 consecutive nights, they are best known for their hits “Staying Out for the Summer” and “Good Enough”. Other acts already confirmed including Preston Reed, Siobhan Wilson and Balkan infused brass band Orkestra del Sol. Line up and tickets available from www.mugstock.org. Early bird tickets start at £64 for weekend camping and £45 for Saturday.
