Massive week in Glasgow, Scotland as Coloursfest 2012 takes place this Saturday, 2nd June, at Braehead Arena & Waterfront. The event is Scotland’s longest running dance event and has been held on the first Saturday in June every year since its launch in 2002. Coloursfest brings together 10,000 clubbers and some of clubland’s hottest brands, with a few superstar DJs thrown in too.
Paul van Dyk will headline Coloursfest 2012 alongside Laidback Luke and Markus Schulz. Paul’s new album, 'Evolution', was released in March 2012 to rave reviews and this will be his first Coloursfest appearance in four years. After selling out The Arches in Glasgow in 2011, Dutch dynamo Laidback Luke returns with his blockbuster beats and fusion house styles, as does Markus Schulz, who returns to Scotland for his first show since 2010. Over the last 10 years Markus has fused the individual musical identities of progressive house and trance into his own inimitable hybrid sound. Paul Oakenfold will also appear as a very special guest as he makes his Coloursfest debut, a legendary DJ/producer who’s bang on just now with his new productions.
Keeping on the tougher sounds, John O’Callaghan, John Askew, Indecent Kearnage (Bryan Kearney vs Indecent Noise), Arctic Moon and Mark Sherry are also on the bill, with Scottish radio station, Clyde 1 FM’s GBXperience, hosting the outdoor stage this year with Darren Styles, Joe Inferno, George Bowie, Mallorca Lee, Obsession and Digital Devil. For the house headz, Mark Knight, Hardwell, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Tommy Trash and La Fuente are all making an appearance as well as many more international and home-grown DJs.
