SOME of Scotland’s most exciting up-and-coming musical acts are set for an exclusive live performance this September after M&Ds revealed the line-up for their Drive-In Gig at Strathclyde Park.

The event, set to take place across September 4 and 5, will allow music lovers to enjoy a special socially distanced concert featuring acts such as local singer Carly Connor, Glasgow-based soul and funk band Tom McGuire & The Brassholes and previous Scottish Alternative Music Award Best Live Act and festival favourites Colonel Mustard & The Dijon 5, all from the comfort of their car.

And as a thank you to all the NHS workers for their continued efforts, the first night of the event will be solely dedicated to them – with free tickets offered to them on the concert’s debut evening.

On the second day there is also a VIP package option which includes one car entry to the concert, as well as two slush smoothies or cold drinks and two Scotland’s Drive In Gig T-shirts. The VIP tickets are limited to 50 cars.

After regular sell-out shows at venues across Scotland and receiving an induction into the Barrowland Hall of Fame back in 2018, Colonel Mustard & The Dijon 5 will be bringing their eye-catching, genre-hopping live show to Strathclyde Park, headlining the line-up across both days.

There will also be a warm-up set from the band’s Mark “DJ5” Lang, who will be welcoming guests with a series of dance anthems and club classics.

Marc Taylor, of Scotland’s Theme Park, said: “The past few months of lockdown have been particularly challenging, especially for NHS staff who have been under a huge amount of pressure. We hope that the Drive-In Gig is a way that we can thank them and for everyone to have a safe and enjoyable evening of live music.

“We’re excited to bring our reimagining of the concert experience to Strathclyde Park for a two-night extravaganza that’s set to hit the right note for music lovers.”

Tickets to the event are priced at £45 per car and can be booked from June 29 by visiting the website
