First ever Sauchiehall Crawl launches
- 1 May 2008
On Sunday 1 June, the first-ever Sauchiehall Crawl music festival will take place along Glasgow's Sauchiehall Street. Tickets will cost £15, and allow fans to pick from 10 different live music acts playing throughout the night in 3 different venues.
The event, inspired by London's Camden Crawl, will bring together a diverse selection of Scottish bands and singers, including The Twilight Sad, How to Swim, Jo Mango, El Padre, We Were Promised Jetpacks, The Ads, De Rosa, Ross Clark and Galchen. One more act is yet to be announced.
The live music events will take place in Sauchiehall Street venues Nice 'n' Sleazy, The Beat Club and ABC2 from 7-11pm, and will be followed by a club night featuring sets from guest DJs until 3am. The ticket price includes a free compilation CD featuring tracks from all of the evening's artists.
It is hoped the Crawl will become a regular annual event in Glasgow's music calendar.
