Thursday 2 August
The day begins with SONIC YOUTHS, a young people’s music showcase of the best in fresh, new music! Featuring acts who have come through the Behind the Noise and Hit the Road programmes, come along and support Scotland's amazing young talent!
George Square will then host Citizens of Everywhere!, an exceptional collaboration between internationally renowned visual artist Douglas Gordon, Scotland's national makar Jackie Kay, and the Royal Scottish National Orchestra.
Douglas Gordon will curate a programme that responds to the rich heritage of George Square, as the civic heart of the city and where citizens gather for their collective voice to be heard, to bring a unique element that melds classical and contemporary sounds and voices for one night only. One of the cornerstones of the programme will be a re-working for orchestration of a Mogwai composition entitled Music For A Forgotten Future (The Singing Mountain) which is to be performed live for the first time in George Square, alongside the debut of a specially written piece bu Jackie Kay.
Plus more from Mischief la Bas, Nevis Ensemble and Feis Phaislig!
