SCOTLAND’S BIGGEST ELECTRONIC DANCE FESTIVAL REVEALS THE TOP 10 ATTRACTIONS
Scotland’s biggest electronic dance festival is set to welcome over 8,000 fans across two days at Glasgow’s award winning Riverside Museum venue in just three weeks time. As the excitement builds, festival organisers reveal the top 10 of attractions for the biggest and best ever Electric Frog & Pressure Riverside Festival.
1. BIGGEST AND BEST YET
Now in its third year, The Electric Frog & Pressure Riverside Festival will celebrate its biggest ever event in 2015. With the addition of The Sunset Stage, 2015 will feature three stages and over 40 hours of local and international names on the decks from 4PM-11PM with legendary afterparties at SWG3 set to continue the party vibe into the early hours. The Sunset Stage will feature names including a high energy back-to-back with Midland and Optimo and a pounding set from Thunder Disco Club to name but few.
Sven Väth, Ricardo Villalobos, Carl Craig, Magda, Nina Kraviz, POPOF, VJ Reach visuals and world class dancers are all set to bring that international party vibe to Glasgow for the first ever time at this year’s Riverside Festival. For over 15 years Sven Väth’s Cocoon has represented one of the most successful ever party concepts and is responsible for a radical change in Ibiza’s nightlife. Cocoon at Amnesia Ibiza is a phenomenon. Attracting an average of 80,000 visitors a year since 1999 and astonishingly, the numbers continue to grow. Since the Cocoon party series started in 1996 the company has gained name recognition in over 30 countries worldwide.
