JULY

 

Platform 18 Festival

Glasgow, UK

http://www.noisilyfestival.com

July 18th

Platform 18 continues to reshape the Glaswegian scene with its mouth watering 2020 edition on Saturday July 4th and 5th 2020, featuring world class headliners Richie Hawtin, Floorplan, Fjaak (live), ANNA and more all playing one visually spectacular main stage in a unique urban setting. 

___________________________________________________________________

 

All this once again goes down on West Street, on the South side of the city, in a space that has only been used by Platform 18. It is a subway station car park beneath two bridges that has a raw, illicit feel that harks back to the earliest, purest days of raving. Enclosed by walls and the bridges themselves, it is a small, intense space that, in an echo of the iconic dance music phenomenon that is planes flying over DC10, has regular trains rattling by on the lines above, often adding to the electric atmosphere generated down below!

 

Platform 18 offers something new and fresh for Glaswegian house and techno lovers and has done since 2013. It comes from the mind of a promoter who has been putting on events for over 12 years and gives you an intimate connection with DJs: everything is set up so the raver and DJ are in sync, the selectors can join punters in the crowd for  hugs and even high fives during set and they have done many times in the past, which always makes this a very special and standout occasion. 

 

Location: West Street Subway Station, Glasgow

Date: 4th + 5th July
