Melting Pot and Heverlee are bringing back the annual Springtime Weekender festival to Glasgow for the second time, where guests can dance away to a myriad of music genres. Taking place on the Springtime bank holiday weekend on May 6 & 7, you can dance away in the event’s Big Top Tent, enjoy some ice-cold pints of Heverlee and enjoy some tasty street food courtesy of The Big Feed.
The beginning of February saw an official announcement of the line-up for the Melting Pot and Heverlee Springtime Weekender, with one of the most successful soul and disco acts of their era, Odyssey, headlining on the Saturday. The group had a string of UK top 10 singles including stone cold disco classics like Native New Yorker, Going Back to My Roots and Inside Out, hitting the top of the charts with Use It Up and Wear It Out in 1980. Odyssey will be bringing a seven piece live band to the Southside of Glasgow, and disco lovers can boogie away like there’s no tomorrow.
Disco enthusiasts will also be thrilled to hear London’s disco-spinning disco collective Horse Meat Disco will make a welcome return to the UK’s friendliest city. The beloved DJ collective have been dedicated to the industry of human happiness since 2004 and have become global disco ambassadors.
Joining them will be Manchester clubbing institution Homoelectric, who are known for their inclusive atmosphere. Homoelectric have been throwing parties for two decades and are creators of the mighty Homobloc, the annual celebration at Manchester’s Warehouse Project. What is more, The Melting Pot DJs will be on hand to bring the party that has kept Glasgow dancing.
Music lovers can also expect Charlotte Adigéry & Bolis Pupul, UK techno sorcerer, DJ and producer James Holden and Shy One with her eclectinc and diverse DJ sets.
Mark Mackechnie, Festival Director, said: “We’re really looking forward to bringing this great event back home to the southside of Glasgow. This is the most ambitious line-up we’ve put on to date – add that to our continued partnership with Heverlee and Optimo, food from the Big Feed and the various performers we will have across the site, DJs and great live acts. It’s going to be memorable”.
