Frightened Rabbit announce Glasgow festival

Scottish indie band Frightened Rabbit have announced they will host a mini festival in Glasgow’s SWG3’s Galvanizers Yard on the 1st of June. This is following the band’s ongoing sold out UK tour to celebrate the 10 year anniversary of the album The Midnight Organ Flight.

The First Incident, named after a song on Frightened Rabbit’s debut album Sing The Greys, is planned to become a regular event should this first outing be a success. Support on the day will come from Leeds post punk band Hookworms, London based art-rock band Dama Scout, and Dundee pop band Be Charlotte.

The event will also see DJ sets going on late after the bands finish. Included in these are Frightened Rabbit, James Graham lead singer of Glasgow’s The Twilight sad, and Mike Palmer who is the guitarist for Edinburgh rock band We Were Promised Jetpacks. More DJs are to be announced as the event draws closer.

Glasgow based music blog Gold Flake Paint will also be curating an alternate stage with acts to be announced soon. There will also be poetry readings throughout the day, and food trucks on site for refreshments.

The Galvanizers Yard will also host Glasgow indie pop icons Belle & Sebastian, as well as a two night residency from dance rock band LCD Soundsystem in April this year. Tickets for The First incident pre-sale went up this morning.
