Festival Mixtape: Glasgowbury 2013


An annual celebration of local musical talent like no other, Glasgowbury Festival returns to the Sperrin mountains this year with arguably its finest line-up to date. Headlined by the globetrotting, genre-defining The Answer, And So I Watch You From Afar and The Japanese Popstars, there is an absolute wealth of homegrown talent littered throughout this year’s line-up – a two-day event for the first time in its thirteen year history.

Excited as we are about this year’s showcase, we’ve put together a fifteen-song Spotify playlist featuring songs from some of the finest acts playing this year’s festival – everyone from cello-wielding songstress Alana Henderson and  Jetplane Landing (pictured) to Derry singer-songwriter Our Krypton Son and electro-pop quartet Ed Zealous.

Stream the playlist below!

Glasgowbury 2013 takes place on Friday, July 19 and Saturday, July 20. Check out the official Glasgowbury website for this year’s full line-up, ticket info and everything else in between.
