With the debut edition of Otherlands Music & Arts Festival now only one month away, there is plenty to look forward to. From 19 – 21 August, Otherlands will welcome guests to the idyllic grounds of Scone Palace in Perthshire for three days of cutting-edge music, forward-thinking art, comedy, bespoke industry panels and so much more. Otherlands is more than just a music festival – it’s a celebration of culture, deep in mother nature. 

As we approach its first edition, here are ten top reasons as to why Otherlands is up there on this year’s festival calendar: 

Watch BICEP closing out the weekend on the Frissonia main stage 

After cementing themselves as one of the standout acts at this year’s Glastonbury Festival with one of the weekend’s most spectacular sets, BICEP will bring their acclaimed live show to Otherlands this August. The Irish dance duo will be headlining the Frissonia main stage on Sunday, closing the weekend with a goosebump-inducing audio-visual masterclass. Other artists setting the tone for the Frissonia mainstage include Jamie xx and Maverick Sabre. 

Check out the best in up & coming local talent

Glam-pop heroes Walt Disco will be playing alongside award winning producer, DJ and activist Taahliah, post-punk heroes VLURE, and rising rap star Chef as well as HYYTS, Kaputt, AiiTee and so many more. 

Tuck into Gannet Grounds’ mouth watering street food market 

Over the weekend guests will have the chance to tuck into some mouthwatering international street food dishes. Boasting 18 delicious traders to choose from, Otherlands’ Gannet Grounds street food market will offer everything from succulent burgers to Afghan & Sri Lankan delicacies and much more.
