Win tickets to Light on the Shore with Edinburgh Gin Seaside

Sorry, this competition has closed.

The List, in association with Edinburgh International Festival, are giving you the opportunity to win one of 5 pairs of tickets to a Light on the Shore with Edinburgh Gin Seaside event of your choice.

Light on the Shore with Edinburgh Gin Seaside is a journey through the highways, byways and back lanes of Scottish music. It celebrates Scotland’s musical impact around the world and recognises visitors who have left an indelible mark. From punk to post-punk, from new wave to no wave, from alt folk to pop folk, from ambient electronica to techno this truly eclectic season is driven by some of Scotland’s most innovative artists, curators and promoters.

Light on the Shore with Edinburgh Gin Seaside takes place at Leith Theatre, recently described by The List as, ‘the best live music venue in Scotland’. Throughout August, seminal Scottish artists such as Mogwai, King Creosote, Julie Fowlis, The Jesus and Mary Chain, Django Django and Karine Polwart will perform their own work, often accompanied by friends they have cherry-picked to join them onstage such as Joan as Police Woman, Michael Rother and James Holden. We also welcome a series of specially curated nights by local festivals and promoters, each with their own unique aesthetic, politics and following, to put their stamp on the 16-night programme. Essential, groundbreaking works by Boards of Canada, Anna Meredith and Martyn Bennett will be reimagined for orchestral forces and promoters and collectives will shape unforgettable nights matching the well loved and the yet to be discovered. The season comes to a close with the return of Alan Cumming’s legendary Club Cumming.
