Hinterland Festival, Glasgow – an adventure in music and art

Billed as ‘an adventure in music and art’, Hinterland Festival is the first of its kind in Glasgow, and is of a similar set up to SXSW in Texas and the Camden Crawl in London, where one wristband grants access to a variety of venues.

The growing list of artists already confirmed to play include The Fall, Little Man Tate, The Xcerts, Simian Mobile Disco (dj set), and allegedly Edie Sedgwick!

Domino Records, the London based leading independent record label, which celebrated its fifteenth anniversary in 2008, will be hosting a night at this year’s Hinterland Festival which runs from 30th April – 1st May across a number of venues in Glasgow.

The eclectic record label is home to the likes of Arctic Monkeys, Franz Ferdinand, Four Tet, Bonnie Prince Billy, The Kills and Animal Collective, to name a few.

The Domino event will feature performances from Domino and Double Six artists and will take place on Friday 1st May at a special venue to be announced on the day.

Eugene McGuinness will be performing tracks from his recent eponymous and critically acclaimed Domino debut, and will be followed by a set from Jon Hopkins, whose album, Insides, is due for release via Double Six in May.

Headlining the night will be Wild Beasts, who will be previewing songs from their much anticipated second LP due for release later this year.

Elsewhere at Hinterland, Sons and Daughters will be performing, as well as The Count & Sinden, who will be manning the decks alongside Simian Mobile Disco. Once again, venues for these shows will be announced on the day.

“Glasgow has always been the British city closest to our musical heart here at Domino. Glasgow people love, live and breathe music like nobody else I have ever met.  Domino is extremely psyched to be involved in this fine looking new festival and having our artists join the diverse range of acts playing to the good folk of the city across some of its best loved venues…”
– Laurence Bell, Domino
