Some of Scotland’s most exciting up-and-coming musical acts are set to for an exclusive live performance this September as Scotland’s Theme Park reveals the line-up for the Drive-In Gig at Strathclyde Park.
The event, set to take place across Friday 4th and Saturday 5th September, will allow music lovers to enjoy a special socially distanced concert featuring acts such as local singer Carly Connor, Glasgow based soul and funk band Tom McGuire & The Brassholes and previous Scottish Alternative Music Award Best Live Act and festival favourites Colonel Mustard & The Dijon 5, all from the comfort of their car.
And as thank you to all the NHS workers for their continued efforts, the first night of the event will be solely dedicated to them – offering free tickets to the concerts debut evening on Friday 4th September (first come first served basis).
On Saturday 5th September, there is also a VIP package option which includes one car entry to the concert, as well as two slush smoothies or cold drinks and two Scotland’s Drive In Gig T-shirts. The VIP tickets are limited to 50 cars so concert goers need to act fast to get this exclusive offer.
After regular sell out shows at venues across Scotland and receiving induction into the Barrowland Hall of Fame back in 2018, Colonel Mustard & The Dijon 5 will be bringing their eye-catching, genre-hopping live show to Strathclyde Park, headlining the line-up across both days. There will also be a warm up set from the band’s Mark ‘DJ5’ Lang, who will be welcoming guests with a series of dance anthems and club classics.
Marc Taylor, of Scotland’s Theme Park, said: “The past few months of lockdown have been particularly challenging especially for NHS staff who have been under a huge amount of pressure. We hope that the Drive-In Gig is a way that we can thank them and for everyone to have an enjoyable evening of live music in the safest way possible.”
“We’re excited to bring our reimagining of the concert experience as well as some of Scotland’s most exciting live acts, including Colonel Mustard and the Dijon 5 to Strathclyde Park for a two night extravaganza that’s set to hit the right note for music lovers across Scotland.”
Colonel J.T. from Colonel Mustard & The Dijon 5, said: “We’re delighted to announce our next shows will be at the Drive-In Gig at Strathclyde Park in September. We’re looking forward to playing these gigs alongside our funk soul brothers Tom McGuire & The Brassholes and one of our favourite female singers in Carly Connor and her amazing band.”
“This is a fantastic chance to thank our amazing NHS frontline workers, as well as kickstart the music economy in our local area in a safe way with a very welcome return to playing live for The Dijon Family again.”
