The first acts playing at this year’s Riverside Festival have been announced as the event returns to Glasgow for its eighth year.
The celebration of electronic music, across three stages, will feature a wide range of acts, from heavyweights of the scene to up and coming, cutting edge artists.
There are two Scottish exclusive live sets with Floating Points making their Scottish debut, and Fatima Yamaha showcasing a forthcoming new album.
Glasgow favourite Skream will perform a global debut b2b set with a surprise special guest artist who is still to be announced.
Techno sensation Amelie Lens will also perform a Scottish exclusive alongside Berlin’s and Berghain’s top dogs Ben Klock and Marcel Dettmann.
Relative newcomers and cutting edge talents are also on the bill including forward thinking electronic crate-digger Sassy J and techno improvisers 999999999 & Afrodeutsche, alongside IDM legend Squarepusher who returns this January with a new album on Warp Records after a five year hiatus.
Glasgow legends Slam, who co-curate the festival, will bring their new hybrid live set, and new star of the Boiler Room, Glasgow based IDA, is also confirmed.
The festival takes place at Glasgow’s Riverside Museum over the weekend of Saturday 23 and Sunday 24 May 2020.
The event, which is strictly for over-18s, runs from 1pm to 11pm each day, with last entry 6pm.
