Rock festival to return with a bang

Topping the bill at Shetfest in August will be Glasgow quartet We Came From Wolves.

ROCK music festival Shetfest is set to return this summer with a packed line-up of Scottish bands and local talent.

The all-day event, which last took place in the isles in 2014, will be held at Da Wheel in Lerwick on 13 August.

Topping the bill will be established alt-rockers We Came From Wolves, who have received praise from the likes of Rocksound and The Herald.

Rising indie outfit Patersani, post-punks Damn Teeth and melodic-hardcore rabble-rousers Get It Together will also feature.

Hotly tipped Thurso act Pure Grief and the returning Black International complete the line-up of visiting acts.

Local bands confirmed so far include The Dirty Lemons, Brundlehorse and Forgotten Sons, with more due to be announced soon.

Shetfest took a year off in 2015 due to “life commitments”, but a spokesman says the event is coming back with a bang.

“I’m very excited for this year’s Shetfest,” he said.

“The bands have been so responsive for playing Shetland. It’s going to be a busy, fun day. And I can only hope the folk of Shetland are keen for a good day of tunes.”

Tickets for this year’s Shetfest are available from Lerwick shops High Level Music and Westside Pine priced at £15.
