Headline acts for this year’s ‘Small but Massive’ event a include a Northern Ireland exclusive performance from Downpatrick rockers The Answer, Derry dance duo The Japanese Popstars and north coast instrumentalists And So I Watch You From Afar.

The first round of announcements for this year’s festival comprises some of the best in new, emerging and established talent from throughout Ireland, including:

For the first time ever Glasgowbury will expand to a two day festival across the weekend of July 19th – 21st, staging a County Derry showcase on Friday 19th in support of Derry~Londonderry’s City Of Culture celebrations.

The announced line-up so far represents just the tip of the festival iceberg with many more announcements due over the coming weeks!

“Every year, Glasgowbury aims to reflect the great success of our homegrown music scene and 2013’s line-up is arguably one of our best and most vibrant,” said organiser Paddy Glasgow.

“The beauty of the festival is that we can have acts such as And So I Watch You From Afar and The Answer, who are representing Northern Ireland on an international scale, alongside bands and artists who are fresh on the gig circuit, playing their first festival slots.

“The acts so far announced reflect less than half of the overall line-up and with a full festival programme combining comedy, street theatre, samba and technology – this could be the most exciting Glasgowbury yet.”
