Outskirts Festival 2016

And finally, the initial line-up for Outskirts Festival 2016 was announced this week.

This is a cross–genre, one-day event and confirmed acts so far include singers Kathryn Joseph and James Graham, Glasgow-based “laboratory theatre company” Company of Wolves's A Brief History of Evil, an aerial performance from Ellie Dubois and jazz duo Herschel 36.

Festival co-curator Matt Addicott said, “we called the festival Outskirts as it’s a really good description of everything the day is and wants to achieve. The performances and events programmed aren’t easily categorised and the artists creating them are working outside the mainstream. Geographically, Platform is located on the outskirts of Glasgow too and we are keen to offer our local audience quality work that feels different and unique”.

Outskirts takes place at Platform, Westerhouse Road, Glasgow on 23 April.
