Festival organizer David Whitelock says 98% of the lineup has now been confirmed, putting them two months ahead of the 2014 festival.

“We are thrilled with the acts on our line-up this year,” Whitelock said in a statement.

“There are some very talented people on the program, with a dynamic range of genres and styles.

“Folk on the Rocks promotes diversity in all its forms and I think this is reflected in what we’ve announced.”
