First Acts Announced for Stag & Dagger Festival

Feature by Dave Kerr | 11 Mar 2009

With performances from over 120 artists (including the likes of Diplo, Jay Reatard, Hot Chip and Duke Spirit), the 'one-ticket-gives-access-to-all' Stag & Dagger festival went down so well on the streets of London last year that they've decided to send it north this May.

The Skinny is set to team up with Margaret, Vice and PCL Concerts to present the inaugural year of the event in Glasgow on Saturday 23rd May. Participating venues thus far are ABC1, The Art School, Nice 'n' Sleazy, Captain's Rest and Stereo.

On the bill will be Cold War Kids, Dananananaykroyd, The Mai Shi, The Joy Formidable and recent Skinny cover stars, The Phantom Band, with many more performers due to be announced here and within these very pages in the coming weeks.

Early bird tickets are already on sale for the reasonable sum of £10 and can be purchased here, here and here.


Stag & Dagger Festival takes place on Saturday, 23 May.
