Wildfire Festival have today revealsed the first twenty bands for 2018. Again, the festival will be held in the sumptuous grounds of Wiston Lodge, Scotland between 22nd and 24th June 2018.

Massive Wagons will headline the rock stage on Sunday. A rising band Wildfire have backed from the very beginning, they return to Wildfire Festival as headliners on what many expect will be their defining year, following their recent major label deal with Earache Records.

British rock veterans, comprising of former members of Iron Maiden, MSG, UFO and Shy are confirmed as one of Saturday's headliners.

Following the knockout headline set from Inglorious in 2016, Wildfire next year welcomes back Wil Taylor and his new band Deever for what will be one of their first summer festival appearances.

Continuing Wildfire's tradition of giving sustained backing to evolving rock bands, Hellbound Hearts, Empyre, Theia and Cairo Son will all be returning to Wildfire next June.

Every year the Wildfire team introduce new bands to its festival roster. Next June Florence Black, Italian rockers Dobermann, Tomorrow Is Lost, Tarot Rats and Midnite City will all make their Wildfire Festival debuts.

Dave Ritchie, Wildfire Festival organiser tells us:

"More than seventy bands will appear across three stages for a weekend event that showcases the best of great new, established and emerging rock and Metal talent. Already we have booked bands from all corners of the UK and we will be announcing our next twenty bands for Wildfire 2018 after the Christmas break.

"As Scotland's summer rock festival we will be investing heavily in breakthrough Scottish bands next year and Sauza Kings are the first of crop of local talent we will be having on our stages next summer.

"We will also be maintaining our commitment to great value for money. As a family friendly festival, children's tickets will be frozen at just £1 and for those wanting to snap up their tickets for Wildfire 2018 early, all tickets purchased before 31st December 2017 will be available at last season's prices.
