DJS Mallorca Lee and Malcolm X and bands including Glasvegas, The Bay City Rollers, The Red Hot Chilli Pipers and The Bluebells are among those gearing up to perform at an outdoor festival in a spectacular setting this weekend.

Music at the Multiverse takes place at Crawick Multiverse, a 55-acre environmental artwork and visitor attraction near Sanquhar in Dumfries and Galloway inspired by the sun, stars and colliding galaxies.

It will feature a new dance tent in addition to the main stage this year. Mallorca Lee will bring his 1994 brand on the Sunday to play a whole day of old skool music by the artists responsible for making back in the day so unforgettable.

He said: “I’m really excited by this, after 10 years of sell-out 1994 events in Glasgow, this is the first time we’ve taken it outside in the fresh air!”

“And it’s going to be amazing – it’s such a spectacular place. And having 1994 in a tent, in a field, with a great line-up, filled with brilliant music – it’s right back to the roots of rave.”

Malcolm X, who is from Kelloholm, near the Multiverse, has been recruiting some of the best local DJs for the Saturday – including arranging for the well-known Jamie B to fly in from Belfast.

Malcolm X, who has been a DJ for 30 years, said: “The first thing that’s going to blow people’s minds is the location – it’s just incredible and that’s before you even add in the music. But having dance music and a two-day event in a place like the Multiverse is just incredible, especially when you’ve got superstars like Mallorca there, along with Jamie B and some really great guests including DJs from the region.”

Councillor Archie Dryburgh, chair of Dumfries and Galloway Council’s communities committee said: “Music at the Multiverse continues our region’s brilliant recent tradition of great live music events. Don’t miss the opportunity to go up to the Crawick Multiverse at Sanquhar to take in the event and enjoy the scenery and fab line-up.

“If local people can get behind Music at the Multiverse, it can go from strength to strength.”
