**THERE ARE STILL TICKETS LEFT FOR THE ELECTRIC STREET CARNIVAL, AVAILABLE ON THE DAY. THE BOX OFFICE IS LOCATED ON EASTVALE STREET IN FRONT OF THE SITE AND IS CASH ONLY.**
August Bank Holiday Sunday sees the creative minds behind Liquid Events (The Wee Chill, Liquid Lounge), Numbers and Optimo, and Glasgow arts studio/venue, SWG3 join forces to present the Electric Frog Street Carnival.
Taking place over two stages, one situated outside on Yorkhill’s Eastvale Place, adjacent to SWG3, the other in the venue itself; its name’s been inspired by the neighbouring steel galvanizer’s yard, or more precisely the original meaning of the word galvanize; the administration of electric shocks, stemming from 17th century scientist Galvini’s accidental generation of electricity via his induction of twitches in severed frogs legs.
Its eye-catching line-up combines both established, well-respected acts alongside some of the freshest, most exciting names on the current UK scene, brought together by one of Glasgow's leading clubs, Numbers and Optimo Music; the imprint founded by Optimo's JD Twitch and JG Wilkes.
A broad range of artists currently utilising SWG3’s multi-discipline facilities will also be creating specially commissioned work which will be incorporated into event; including 3-dimensional projections from Pointless Creations and a large-scale collaborative centre-piece by graffiti artists’ Gazmac and Sam Bates amongst others, making the Street Carnival both a visual and aural experience.
Add in-and-outdoor drinking areas, a selection of great gourmet food (including the jerk chicken bar) as well as covered, heated areas and even a spot of rain in this changeable summer of ours won't spoil what’s guaranteed to be the ideal way of enjoying the Bank Holiday weekend.
