Friday 4th August
For three and a half decades, Primal Scream have remained a force within Britain’s rich musical heritage. Delving into vast musical genres and delivering everything from psychedelic pop to degenerate rock’n’roll; euphoric rave to industrial gloom for fans to wrap their ears around, Primal Scream are without doubt one of the most influential bands of recent times. Their third studio album Screamadelica earned the Mercury Prize in 1992 and the band went on to put out a timeless catalogue of records and hits which retain their cultural relevance to this day. Forming in the early 80s in Glasgow, Bobby Gillespie bonded with childhood friend Jim Beattie over a love of 60s garage, 70s punk and more. Ever evolving, Primal Scream remain firm music lovers – still listening and getting excited, intertwining new discoveries into their music as they continue to release one classic hit after another along the way.
Primal Scream will be joined by Scottish duo, one of alt-rock’s most revered bands and Just Like Honey hitmakers – The Jesus and Mary Chain, along with Texan psych-rock legends The Black Angels, both sure to deliver blistering live performances.
