With less than a week to go until Melting Pot x Heverlee Presents returns to Glasgow’s Southside for the next instalment of their series of outdoor parties, here’s what to expect.
This year’s festival will take place at a brand-new venue in Queen’s Park Recreation Grounds. Unlike previous years, the forthcoming edition boasts a big top all-weather tent large enough to cover everyone. As well as a big top tent, there will be a dedicated Heverlee Village on site with its own stage, seating areas and bar. The tented village also boasts its own line-up curated by Electric Shores featuring DJs and artists from Glasgow including Project Radio and Radio Buena Vida. Heverlee will also be welcoming renowned Glasgow graffiti artist, Conzo Throb who will be creating live street art from the festival floor.
Winners of ‘Best Street Food’ at both The Scotsman and Glasgow Live Awards, street food connoisseurs The Big Feed will be on site offering a whole range of food to satisfy most requirements from gluten free; vegetarian; vegan and meat options.
The weekend’s line-up will count with DJ, producer and Radio Buena Vida host KTAB on Saturday, 30th April, as well as Glasgow duo Optimo (Espacio) who will be celebrating 25 years of parties alongside utopian synth duo and Scottish Album of the Year nominees Free Love, internationally established DJ, producer, vocalist and La Cheetah club resident Nightwave, Glasgow based Nigerian born rapper Bemz who will be playing live and two staples of the city’s club scene and Clydebuilt Radio regulars Junglehussi and Plantainchipps.
