Stag and Dagger Festival, Glasgow – Various Venues 23rd May

stag-and-daggerFollowing hot on the heels of Hinterland is another boutique festival, the rather interestingly titled Stag and Dagger at the end of this month. Last years event was London-based – snarl, boo, hiss say the regional types – but this year they are taking it on the road, first to Leeds and then to Glasgow. Which sort of pisses on any moaning chips, in our humble opinon.

The line-up looks very interesting indeed – ELM faves Cold War Kids, The Phantom Band, White Denim and Black Lips headline, but there is a lot of strong support on the undercard too, with bands such as Aliens, Cursive and the local legend that is Duglas Stewart and the BMX Bandits. Oh yes.

Throw in The Joy Formidable, Hot Club and our recent hot tips Meursalt and you have a strong reason to go right away, but trust us; if Hinterland taught us anything, it’s that belting at high-speed in a City Centre is a lot more fun than belting at high speed through muddy fields. This is the way the modern festival is going.

Tickets are £16.50, which strike even tight-fisted old us as very reasonable, and are available from here

Brilliantly, it’s a wholly over-18’s event, which is good as I don’t like children. Ah come on, I wouldn’t go to a swing park, they shouldn’t come to pubs. A deal’s a deal.

As usual, we’ll be bringing you exclusive interviews, reviews and photographs from the event. Hope to see you there. Mine’s a large lager.
