Preview: Stag and Dagger 2011

21.05.2011

This month will see another attempt by the mighty Stag and Dagger mob to make some serious shock waves in Glasgow’s varied festival network.  The event takes place in London on May 19th and Glasgow on the 21st. It’s no surprise to see their website happily declaring that, “Stag & Dagger is a “one ticket gives access to all” annual festival that will allow music lovers in Glasgow and Shoreditch (London) access the best new live music acts.” 


Unlike some of its festival rivals in Glasgow such as Celtic Connections, Stag and Dagger offers music (and beer) lovers a one day event at a variety of different venues.  Now in its third year in Glasgow, it also arrives with the added spice that a clash of set times between your ones to watch is more than inevitable. A festival must if you enjoy a wee sprint to and fro.

ABC1-Warpaint, Admiral Fallow, Clinic
