Phase three of artists and introducing the Speakeasy

The Speakeasy in association with The List will have a host of talent and conversation on show, from comedy acts which will be sure to get the tent erupting in laughter, to artist Q&A’s with some of Scotland’s biggest and best talent. 

 

The weekend’s music festivities will take place across 3 stages; The Grand Parade where guests can expect to get up close to the biggest names in music, Guitars & Other Machines which is a space for up-and-coming, grassroots artists and your favourites of the future, plus a few heroes in there too, and finally the Unknown Pleasures stage which invites fans to explore their adventurous side with a programme of electronic music.
