With so much to choose from, we pick some of the best bits from the Red Bull Music Academy UK Tour
The Red Bull Music Academy UK Tour arrives in Glasgow for a weekend of events, including art/music installations, talks and, of course, parties. Here's some of the highlights.
From Disco to Disco
More concentrated disco-house energy than any room in Glasgow has ever experienced before, with the small and brilliantly future-gothic basement room in Berkeley Suite welcoming Dimitri From Paris, Prins Thomas and some unannounced and ‘very secret’ special guests.
Berkeley Suite, Fri 27 Mar
Loops With Numbers
Part club, part gallery opening, this evening event will see the team behind Glasgow club Numbers (the starting point for local heroes Jackmaster, Hudson Mohawke and Rustie) show a surround sound and lighting-based installation which is soundtracked by friends of Numbers including Actress, Anthony Naples, Blawan and more.
Gallery of Modern Art, Fri 27 Mar
Optimo Pequeno Espacio
Literally translated as ‘Optimum Small Space’, this special intimate edition of what is still Glasgow’s most iconic club night after fifteen years see Twitch and Wilkes play for a tiny audience chosen by ballot.
Panther Milk Bar, Fri 27 Mar
Visionary Detroit rapper and producer Brown is familiar with Glasgow through his friendship with Numbers, but here it’ll be upcoming Glasgow club and label Astral Black which puts on the show, alongside Mumdance & Riko Dan, AB boss Jon Phonics and his label signees DJ Milktray and Jon Phonics. Also catch him in conversation earlier in the day at the same venue.
In conversation and playing live at Astral Black, both at SWG3, Sat 28 Mar
It wouldn’t be a weekend out in Glasgow without the legendary and long-running Saturday night house and techno party. For the occasion, Harri and Domenic welcome old friend of the Subbie Derrick May and a live set from Paranoid London.
Sub Club, Sat 28 Mar
A Night With LuckyMe
Scottish music and design collective LuckyMe have built and maintained a strong international reputation, and here they show why. Appearing alongside rapper and performance artist Mykki Blanco will label mainstays Jacques Greene, Naked and Éclair FiFi.
