Featuring

Young Fathers

Young Fathers appearing at this event

Wicked hip hop three piece based in Edinburgh, slinky in attitude, dosed up on dope beats. The NME once described them as being 'locked somewhere between De La Soul and 3T, but re-imagined for the hipster generation'. Their debut 2014 album 'Dead' won the prestigious Mercury Music Prize award, fighting off competition from the likes of Damon Albarn, Bombay Bicycle Club and Royal Blood, while their 3rd album; 2018's 'Cocoa Sugar', was their highest charting album to date in the UK along with cracking the US Heatseekers chart. The band also had 6 songs featured on the 'T2 Trainspotting' soundtrack, with director Danny Boyle describing it as "the heartbeat of the film".

Skipinnish

Skipinnish appearing at this event

Skipinnish encompasses the very best of contemporary Celtic music with a unique and sublime mix of chart-topping, self-penned songs and powerful bagpipe, fiddle and accordion-led tune sets. As a result, the band has built a loyal and strong fan base since its formation, by co-founders Andrew Stevenson and Angus MacPhail, on the Isle of Tiree in 1999.
