Electric Frog and Pressure Festival Promoter Dave Clarke said: “We’re hugely excited to announce the first names on the line-up for Electric Frog & Pressure Riverside Festival. We are also glad to be releasing the map of the Riverside site which shows the improvements we are planning in the infrastructure and the layout. The first names on the line-up include some of the best in the world and it’s already shaping up to be our best Electric Frog and Pressure collaboration yet!”
Now in the second year, the organisers have worked hard behind the scenes to improve all aspects of the site. For the first time ever, there will also be the opportunity to purchase drinks tokens in advance from the festival’s web site, utilising state-of-the-art bar-code technology.
The party is a day and night affair with the Riverside festival after-parties taking place at various venues in the city, with full details to be announced soon. Visit www.riversidefestivalglasgow.com for more information and ticket prices, which go on sale tomorrow at 9am.
