Glasgow’s New Festival, Hinterland April 2009

2009 sees the launch of an exciting new two day multi-venue festival in Glasgow. Hinterland, the first single ticket multi-venue art and music event, runs from 30th April to 1st May 2009.

Launched to celebrate Glasgow's UNESCO status as a world centre of music, the new festival aims to showcase the finest upcoming and established Scottish talent.

Plans for the festival include live music, DJ sets and visual arts projects. More than 80 bands from different genres will take part in the two day event and organisers want around half of them to be Scottish.
