Taking place on Saturday 25th March and playing out over 11 hours in two different venues, the event will begin at The Glue Factory, making use of the space for a sensory, audiovisual experience - prefabricated for techno and finely tuned to “deprive you of all but the necessary senses”.
Alongside Animal Farm residents Quail & Turtle, Manchester’s Stephanie Sykes will launch the event, after impressing with an explosive set at the Art School for her Scottish debut last year.
The enigmatic Abdulla Rashim also makes his second appearance in Glasgow, while Ostgut-Ton’s latest signing Somewhen will be performing live. Berlin-based producer Dax J completes the line-up, having released his relentless ‘Sonic Drones’ EP on Soma Records last year, as well as recent outings on Clergy and Monnom Black.
The event will then continue at The Joytown Electric Theatre, located near Glasgow’s Cowcaddens Subway station and never before used for a specialised event. There, the Animal Farm DJs will be joined by Dax J and more ‘til 3am.
Animal Farm Presents BLACKOUT takes place on Saturday 25th March, starting at 4pm at The Glue Factory, before moving to The Joytown Electric Theatre ‘til 3am. Advance day, night and combi tickets are available from Resident Advisor ranging from £13-£25.
