ELECTRONIC music fans from across Scotland will descend on Glasgow’s Riverside Museum for this year’s Riverside Festival.

The three-day festival, which begins on Thursday, has been applauded for featuring a host of both local and international talent across its three stages.

The festival’s Satellite Stage is dedicated to showcasing Glasgow-based up-and-coming talent, giving a platform to newcomers in the city’s world-renowned music scene.

Mark Mackechnie, the festival's co-director, said: “It’s really important to us that Riverside Festival evolves every year alongside Glasgow’s own incredible underground scene.

“This is the second year of the Satellite Stage which was specifically introduced to showcase local artists.

“We put as much thought into finding the perfect headliners as we do home-grown talent, giving all artists a great platform.”

Such headliners include Charlotte de Witte, Carl Cox (below), Joseph Capriati and Mercury Music Prize nominee and electropop legend Róisín Murphy.

One of those performing on the Satellite Stage is the Glasgow born-and-bred DIJA, who will be playing on Friday in her second set at the festival.

The multidisciplinary DJ and visual artist is known for her high energy club sets all over the city and has featured on radio stations throughout the UK such as NTS, Foundation Fm and Clyde Built.

On her upcoming performance, she said: “I’m looking forward to sharing my favourite sounds with the Glasgow crowd in a really idyllic location.

“It’s great to play alongside friends you grew up learning how to DJ and seeing them given a platform to showcase their talent.

“The local community is keeping music culture alive, doing the groundwork can be overlooked and it happens far too often so it’s cool to see Riverside festival tapping into that.”

Maveen, a Ugandan-born, Glasgow-based DJ and radio host will also be playing the festival for a second time tomorrow in a back-to-back with fellow artist, Lizzur.

Maveen, who describes his sets as "genre-defying", says this Riverside is not to be missed.

He said: “This year is shaping up to be the best one yet, as more emphasis has been placed on showcasing what Glasgow has to offer.

“From local heroes to emerging women, queer and black artists.”
