The five-piece from Selkirk, Scotland formed in 2003 and have been building a large fan base from their current home in Glasgow.
The recent release of their third album, ‘The Winter of Mixed Drinks’, has many critics placing the band on the brink of big things.
Headliners Ash will be supported by the likes of The Beat, Edward II, Penguin Café and Royal Gala.
The debut event will boast five arenas of music including a BBC Introducing stage and two dance arenas – the DIY/Smokescreen Soundsystem playing a range of deep and underground house music and UDS/Desert Storm featuring cutting edge DJ’s playing drum and bass, gabba, techno, jungle and breakcore.
There will also be an Orange Tree chill out tent that will host regional bands and acoustic acts.
In addition Headstock will feature a dedicated Kid’s Field offering drum and jewellery workshops, face-painting, story-telling, puppet shows and an eco-sculpture which will be built during the day with help from the children and families attending.
Other activities include an arts and crafts section, innovative workshops and a diverse range of food as well as a full bar facility including a selection of real ale and cider.
A limited number of early bird tickets are on sale now for just £20 with camping available for an extra £5.
