Watching Trees festival has announced its line-up for this summer’s debut.
Check out the full line-up below.
Optimo explained in a press release: “We always talk about our dreams of kicking off something together. Something that would incorporate our ideas of what a festival can be for the people who come. How their collective experience of being somewhere different, away from it all and with music, can be enriched. “Unity”, we guess and the joy that brings to us as humans is a good enough reason to do something like this. We’re driven by the strong belief that music has this power to unite and that’s in the soul of what we’re going to do with the first edition of Watching Trees.”
Fantastic Twins, who are performing live at the festival said: “It’s been 15 years since my first Optimo (Espacio) baptism on Jamaica Street and my Glasgow years of hardcore boogying with Keith and Jonnie have never ceased to inspire me ever since. From that day forth our friendship has grown like one of those solid trees we’ll be dancing under at the festival. I’m psyched to be a part of this first edition’s lineup and cannot wait to bang the box until the music stops.”
An Optimo 25th anniversay compilation is set to follow later in the year “celebrating some of the music that has defined our story” and much more to be announced for Watching Trees.
Local food and drink will be at the event and tickets are available here.
