PREVIEW: Doune The Rabbit Hole Festival 2022

When: 14th – 17th July 2022

Where: Cardross Estate, Port of Menteith, Stirlingshire, Scotland

After a three year pandemic-enforced hiatus, Doune The Rabbit Hole is back. A fortnight today the jewel in Scotland’s music festival crown makes a most welcome return to this beautiful, family-owned estate deep in the heart of Scotland. Started in 2010, this intimate, independent music and arts event celebrates the very best of Scotland’s independent/DIY arts scene alongside amazing international acts.

The culmination of what is now three years of planning is reflected in another massive four-day line-up with the Scots’ music titans Amy MacDonald, Belle & Sebastian, and Teenage Fanclub headlining the event alongside the American punk-poet legend Patti Smith who tops the bill on the opening Thursday night.

An incredibly strong undercard will see appearances from a hugely diverse range of artists from both home and abroad including Sleaford Mods, Orbital, Yard Act, Camera Obscura, 10cc, 808 State, Tide Lines, Boney M, Honeyblood, Billy Nomates, Stanley Odd, Peggy Seeger, The Vegan Leather, Lisa O’Neill, Hurray For The Riff Raff, and Baccara across the three main music stages, Jabberwocky, Baino and Whistleblower.

Dozens more will perform in the Warren Dance Arena across the four days of the festival.

Accurately described as being “like a mini Scottish Glastonbury”, in addition to music Doune The Rabbit Hole also offers its famous, ever-popular and fun-filled Family Field, a Yoga and Wellness Area, various Workshops, Douniversity Talks, covering a wide range of topics like STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths), social change, the climate and ecological crisis, activism, LGBTQ+, feminism and much more besides. All of this and more quality food and drink that you can shake a stick at.
