After last Summer’s sell-out on the banks of the Clyde, Electric Frog & Pressure announce the return of Glasgow’s Riverside Festival! Scotland’s premier celebration of electronic music is set to provide Glasgow with another unmissable weekend. The Riverside Festival takes place on 27th and 28th May 2017 at the Riverside Museum.
Slam, who co-curate the event, will be joined by a mesmerising array of ground-breaking international artists including Sven Väth, Nina Kraviz, Rødhåd, DJ Koze, Alan Fitzpatrick (who will play a special back to back set with Slam), Loco Dice, Surgeon (playing an exclusive modular live set), Levon Vincent, Hunee, Ilario Alicante, Derrick Carter, Paula Temple, George Fitzgerald, Mr G, Art Department, Jasper James and Animal Farm.
Over the last 5 years Glasgow’s annual Riverside Festival has welcomed many bona fide legends alongside exciting fresh and raw talent to its beautiful location, with the iconic backdrop of Riverside Museum and the famous and historic Tall Ship.
World renowned Frankfurt club and label Cocoon, the notorious party crew who host Mondays in Amnesia each season in Ibiza, will return to their Scottish home on Saturday for the third year in a row.
“It’s a beautiful place, absolutely stunning. Looking around it’s really incredible.” – Kerri Chandler
“The Scottish crowd is always amazing, really up for it. This festival is a real highlight in my year” – Laurent Garnier
“It’s a real honour to be invited back by the venue to put on what must be the most creative electronic music event in the Scottish calendar!” – Stuart McMillan, Slam
“This one’s the biggest build. Every year they’re trying to put more things in place to make sure the participants have a great time. And again, I think it’s great letting people see a museum in a different light and just having a dynamic place that people feel comfortable walking around in, eating and drinking in and not having too many rules in it either and just experiencing it as a really beautiful setting.” – Michelle Woods, Programming and Events Officer at Riverside Museum
“To come back to Glasgow to play to this size of crowd is a really big deal.” – Jackmaster
