Glasgowbury set to expand

GLASGOWBURY have announced their decision to expand the annual new music festival to a two-day event in 2013.

Northern Ireland’s Best Festival will link with the City of Culture in 2013 to include an exciting Derry showcase on Friday July 19 before staging the best of the rest on Saturday July 20. The ‘small but massive’ event has provided a platform for some of the best in new and emerging homegrown talent from throughout Ireland since it started over 13 years ago; most recently welcoming Therapy?, The Japanese Popstars, Fighting With Wire and over 50 others to the 2012 edition of the festival. And, in an exciting twist, the group have also announced that tickets will be frozen at 2012 prices – which means that you get two days for the price of one. A festival and camping ticket at £45 will now include two days of entertainment while a festival only ticket permits entry to the event on Saturday as normal. Tickets for Glasgowbury 2013 will go on sale next week from and the annual submissions period will open later in November to offer artists the opportunity to submit for consideration for the festival.
