Festival Guide: Optimo 20

Optimo has stood the test of time in the Scottish music scene, the club night has reached legendary status by turning 20 years old this year!

If that’s not cause to celebrate… I don’t know what is. Here’s all you need to know about the birthday party.

What’s Optimo 20 then?

Optimo 20 is a one day electronic music festival taking place on bank holiday Sunday 6th of August 2017. Two decades ago Optimo (Espacio) put on parties for “like-minded freaks” – (their words not mine) on Sundays in The Sub Club, the operation has evolved significantly since the glory days of 1997. 

Optimo have always remained passionate about music. A true love for dance tunes and good parties allowed them to grow their posse of like-minded freaks in to the huge following they have now. The festival will run from 2pm – 11pm and will essentially be one giant celebration of clubbing culture in Glasgow, sound-tracked by exclusive live sets from cutting-edge DJ’s and performers. 

Where’s it happening?

Optimo are teaming up with their buddies at SWG3 – Glasgow’s go to venue for a huge night out. The festival will be the first music event to take over the Galvanizer’s Yard next door to the SWG3 complex. Parts of the building will be used to present three stages that represent the music and ethos Optimo has loved and championed over the years. 

Who’s playing?

Taking place across three stages at The Galvanizers Yard, Optimo’s JD Twitch and JG Wilkes will appear alongside The Black Madonna, Ben UFO, Aurora Halal, Errorsmith, Midland and loads more – we can’t wait!
