The lastest editon of Wildfire Festival (Scotland's only Rock and Metal festival) was held at the end of June. Located at Wiston Lodge near Biggar, it featured over fifty bands spread over three days and two stages.

I took time off from the stages to catch up with a trio of acts who were all playing the festival for the first time.

Straight from their Saturday night headlining spot on Stage 2 at Wildfire Festival 2015, I caught up with the members of I.C.O.N to see how their set went, their thoughts on the band's first appearance at the festival as well as the low-down of their brand new album, 'The Blacklist'.

I.C.O.N are:
Mark Sagar – Vocals
Scott Knowles – Guitar
Reece Bevan – Bass Guitar
Larry Paterson – Drums


Formed in early 2012, Newcastle based Hellion Rising played to a packed main stage crowd on the Sunday at Wildfire and I caught up with the band to ask how their set went and to see what they thought of the Wildfire Festival experience and to see what the band have planned for the rest of 2015.

Hellion Rising are:
Matt Adamson – Vocals
Davey Reay – Guitars
Giovanni Camillo – Guitars
Kieran Cant – Bass Guitar
Adam Telford – Drums


Uncle Rust played their first ever set at Wildfire on the Saturday night. Although based in London, McConville brothers Justin and Chris originally hail from Scotland so their appearance at Wildfire was something of a homecoming from them. I caught up with them to see what their impression of Wildfire were and to discuss the Rock and Metal scene in Scotland.

Uncle Rust are:
Justin McConville – Vocals/Guitar
Magdy Abdel-Rehim – Guitar
P J Phillips – Bass Guitar
Chris McConville – Drums
