SCOTLAND’S BIGGEST ELECTORNIC MUSIC FESTIVAL BROUGHT TO AN UNFORGETTABLE CLOSE
Scotland praised iconic legend Fatboy Slim on the banks of the Rivers Clyde on the closing night of The Electric Frog & Pressure Riverside Festival in style. As the sun turned the Glasgow sky shades of pink, across the festival site Kerri Chandler delivered a set that’s sure to go down in the festival’s history books.
The closing day saw over eight hours of well-crafted DJ sets, a sell out crowd of 6,000 fans and a festival first when a dedicated fan chose the event to propose to his childhood sweetheart onboard the Tall Ship on the banks of the River Clyde.
East Kilbride’s Jonny Welsh (24) asked long-term girlfriend Maxine Allan (25) of ten years to take his hand in marriage as to which she said yes Dixon Avenue Basement Jams played a sublime set of dance floor house and techno tunes in the background.
After a scorching opening day of the fourth-consecutive year for the festival, Glasgow’s The Electric Frog & Pressure brought their epic collaboration to a euphoric close thanks to spine-tingling sets from the likes of Dimitri From Paris and Jackmaster.
One fan from Edinburgh expressed their excitement during the Fatboy Slim headline set as: “special” and “memories with my friends I will never forget.”
Speaking about the event, festival organiser Dave Clarke said: “We were delighted to return for our fourth consecutive year on the grounds of the Riverside Museum and even more so that we could bring such big names to a city music festival.
This year’s event has been special to us for so many reasons. Not only have SOMA Records kicked off their 25th Anniversary at the Riverside, we’ve seen a line-up unrivalled in Scotland.
“Year on year we have put tireless efforts into improving the event. Behind the scenes, the team working at the festival have worked relentlessly to deliver a premier event that Scotland can be proud of. We would like to thank everyone who attended this weekend’s festival for making it such a memorable success.”
Saturday saw the likes of Sven Väth, Ben Klock, Rødhåd and Laurent Garnier turn up the heat and Sunday’s edition didn’t disappoint with Julio Bashmore, Joris Voorn and DJ Deeon delighting the crowds.
Once again, Heverlee Beer provided a unique environment to enjoy cold refreshments, as DJs played atmospheric tunes with the sun beating bright in the sky.
