The return of Glagsow's Electric Frog will take place on Easter Weekend (23rd + 24th April) in a bid to get the festival season 'a hip-hopping.
Announcements so far include disco heavyweights Francois Kevorkian (playing his only UK show of 2011) and Danny Krivit (playing his only show in Scotland for the year). Also expect an appearance from Glasgow-born Hyperdub honcho Kode 9, cut & paste tyrant DJ Yoda, US garage guru Todd Edwards and Chicago techno don Green Velvet, plus many, many more. There will also be live sets from familiar faces on the Glasgow scene, including Optimo, Slam, Melting Pot and residents from Fortified Sessions and Electric Eliminators.
Held under industrial arches in the heart of West Glasgow, this two-day festival is going to ooze talent, aiming to represent the city's party culture by bringing in some of the heaviest names in electronic music.
Improving on last summer's Electric Frog 2010 is no doubt going to be tough but promoters have upped the ante for 2011, promising better sound, lighting and production to support the huge two day line-up. Boasting four bars and a wide range of food outlets, the EF crew will make sure you are sorted with plenty booze and grub. Up for it..?
We've got two weekend passes and two single day tickets up for grabs.
