The location is simply spectacular with the iconic architecture of the Riverside Museum and the views along the river Clyde as the back drop, and with so many amazing acts on the bill, it’s shaping up to be our best Electric Frog and Pressure collaboration yet! It appears we are to be blessed with dry weather too which is a bonus.”
