In association with Rip It Up, Light on the Shore brings together major bands, artists and collectives to celebrate the diversity, virtuosity and originality of Scottish popular music as part of the Edinburgh International Festival.
Crossing genres – from folk to hip hop, electronica to rock – and spanning decades, Light on the Shore showcases some of those who have built Scottish music’s international reputation as well as those who are remaking it for a new generation. Several artists in the programme also feature in the Rip it Up exhibition, including Mogwai, King Creosote and Karine Polwart.
Other artists confirmed so far include Anna Meredith & Southbank Sinfonia, s t a r g a z e performs Boards of Canada, Django Django, The GRIT Orchestra performs Bothy Culture and Beyond, Lau presents Lauland and King Creosote. The full line up and ticketing details will be announced on 2 May 2018.
