The temperature is rising, and the Les-Fest 4 anticipation is spreading like Wildfire. Already established with a formidable reputation, Scotland’s premier rock and metal festival is back for 2015 with a new name, and a promise that it’s going to be bigger and better than ever. Returning to the picturesque setting of Wiston Lodge in the Scottish Borders, Wildfire brings its trademark mix of established names and new blood for three days of the very best in loud music.
“The first headliner for 2015 needs very little introduction from us, suffice to say we are delighted to have enticed genuine heavy metal legends Tygers of Pan Tang to Wildfire 2015. Oh, you want another iconic name? Well the ultimate family friendly good-time festival needs a proper party band, a band that has played just about every other UK festival but couldn’t resist the draw of Wildfire’s lakeside setting; oh crikey it’s only Lawnmower Deth.
Next up, a band cited as an influence by no less than James Hetfield. Scottish heavy metal legends Holocaust will be making an exclusive UK appearance… when they’re on the Wildfire office will be closed and you’ll find us all down the front. Adding Wildfire’s first splash of international colour, the hotly tipped Lord Volture are making the trip across from Holland to grace our main stage, Anyone who caught their recent set at SOS festival knows this is one not to be missed.
Topping off our first announcement, we’re delighted to announce that we’ll be joined by a dazzling array of talent that includes Tysondog, The Mercy House, Line of Fire, Ronin, Press to Meco, Kaine and Silverjet. And mainly because guitarist KC threatened to cry if we didn’t, we’ve even found a spot for Leeds’ finest rock’n’roll miscreants The Idol Dead”
