Tracer Trails/ Cry Parrot weekender

Two heavy hitters in Scotland’s DIY music scene stage September festival

Champions of all that is diverse, curious, metropolitan, undersung and fun – two heavy hitters in Scotland’s DIY music scene are joining forces to put on a brand new two-day festival. Glasgow-based independent music promoters Cry Parrot and Tracer Trails will be taking over SWG3 in Finnieston for a weekend of music spread over three stages.

So while we can’t reveal any of the acts just yet, we can assume the co-promo will present something special, based on the acts they’ve both put on recently: last month Cry Parrot invited Muscles of Joy, Ben Butler & Mousepad and Moon Unit to help them celebrate their fourth birthday, and they’re bringing the splendid Ducktails (pictured) in June, while Tracer Trails have got avant-garde drummer Charles Hayward playing this month, and a tour with Wounded Knee and Ali Roberts planned for later in the year.

Line-up: To be announced.

Plus: Expect leftfield and experimental talent.
Minus: Zero camping and barbecuing potential.

Music is the Music Language, SWG3, Glasgow, Sat 3–Sun 4 Sep (please note change of date), Price: £6 (day) / £10 (weekend).
