From Hudson Mohawke to Jackmaster, Optimo to Mungo's Hi-Fi, Subcity Radio has hosted some of Glasgow’s biggest and brightest names. Over the past twenty years, the volunteer run station has supported talent on all levels, boasting every type of show you can think of and the musical genres to match.
Next month marks a momentous milestone on the Subcity timeline, as they celebrate 20 years of inclusive, accessible and quality programming, lining up DJs past and present for a big party at the Art School on March 21st. No strangers to the Vic bar and Assembly Hall, you can expect the likes of DJ Keoma, Vitamins, DJ Hush and
Paul Thompson to provide the soundtrack, with promises of ‘massive production’ alongside. Past Subcity parties at the Art School like the infamous Dimension B should give you an idea of what to expect.
Prior to this, Subcity will also be hosting a ‘Pure Radio Sex’ exhibition running over four nights at the Art School, charting twenty years of broadcast with an “installation stuffed to the brim with rave paraphernalia, curated soundbites, and relics from the station’s long and sordid history.” The exhibition’s opening party on Feb 25th will also feature music from Jonnie Wilkes (Optimo) and Build + Destroy Radio.
Subcity Radio’s 20th Birthday Party takes place on March 21st at the Art School. Check the full line up and buy advance tickets here. Subcity’s ‘Pure Radio Sex’ exhibition runs from the 25-28th of February and is free entry.
