Glasgow electronic festival takes place in Queens Park Glasshouse
Boutique clubbing mini-festival taking over the Glasshouse at Queens Park in Glasgow.
Bit late for a festival isn’t it?
Admittedly it has been moved back from their original September date, but it’s all indoors so who cares about the inclement weather?
Good point, so who’s playing?
Yet again they haven’t disappointed, with cutting edge electro house from Get Physical’s MANDY; Chicago house don DJ Sneak (pictured); leftfield cosmic electro from Cosmo Vitelli (I’m A Cliché Records); nu-disco funk from Daniel Wang and acid house from the Hacienda’s Graeme Park being just some of the highlights.
What should we expect then?
The Wee Chill cares about the music, always going for quality and, as the name suggests, a relaxed atmosphere. With some of Glasgow’s best-loved club nights (Subculture, Optimo’s Hung Up!, Billy Woods’ Supermax and Hijacked Records) each hosting a room, you know you’re in safe hands.
How’s the support line-up shaping up?
As you'd expect there are representatives from all the clubs mentioned with favourites like Harri & Domenic, Junior, the Optimo DJs and Billy Woods manning the decks but also expect live shows from ‘rudewave’ pioneers The Statler Project, sharp indie types The Zonules of Zinn (who have supported Texas in the past but we won’t hold that against them) and the lush vocals and electronica of Leigh Myles.
Anything on for the night owls?
The Wee Chill runs from 5pm-11pm, so that’s six hours of club action across five rooms (with a bus service running folk back to the city centre), but if that just isn’t enough, there are afterparties at the Subbie and the Admiral which keep things going until the small hours.
