Haddow Fest: The latest member of Scotland’s multi-venue festival craze

Glasgow has had The Sauchiehall CrawlHinterland and Stag & Dagger in the past couple of years – now it’s time for Edinburgh to get in on the act of hosting a multi-venue music festival.

The inaugural HADDOW FEST will be held on Sunday, March 28 at various locations throughout the capital including The Bongo Club (450 capacity), Electric Circus (250), Cabaret Voltaire (250), Sneaky Pete’s (100), The GRV (250), Maggie’s Chambers (250) and Whistlebinkies (250). Most venues will open from 1pm-midnight, with the headliners expected to take to the stage at around 10.30pm.

The mammoth line-up of 75 bands features mostly Scottish indie talent such as IdlewildWe Were Promised JetpacksThe DykeeniesSergeantMy Latest NovelTango In The AtticMitchell Museum and The Gillyflowers as well as a few bands from down south like The Paddingtons and The Chapman Family.

The event is being organised by English promoter Hamish Jolly, who is a booking agent for Towers Of LondonLondon Blackmarket and Edinburgh garage-rock group The 10:04s who, funnily enough, are all on the Haddow Fest bill.
