Opening band DRO make fascinating avant-folk/improv, and their debut album, 'The Guga Hunters of Ness', was a soundtrack to a BBC documentary about the fading tradition of the annual Gannet Hunt off the Western Isles of Scotland. Regular openers for Godspeed You! Black Emperor and accompanists for Baby Dee, they build tracks from haunted violin strains or the tinkling of flung metal. They're playing second fiddle here to the festival-friendly headliners, who released a second album of beardy folk-pop last year.
