By Anna Grace on 05 Sep 2019
Brian Reynolds-led 432 Presents is bringing the Great Western, a new multi-venue music and arts festival, to Glasgow, Scotland this November.
The festival, taking place on Saturday 23 November, will host over 50 live acts across ten venues in the west end of Glasgow, including Malian desert blues collective Songhoy Blues, Californian dance punks !!! (Chk chk chk) and US singer-songwriter Cass McCombs.
Alongside live music programming, the Great Western is working with local restaurant and bars to provide a range of food and drink options. A variety of community workshops will also be on offer.
Veteran Scottish promoter Reynolds, formerly of Synergy Concerts, launched 432 Presents in January this year, along with the majority of the former Synergy team.
432 Presents promotes over 500 events each year, including ongoing collaborations with Scottish events Celtic Connections, Doune the Rabbit Hole and Edinburgh International Festival.
Venues under 432’s operation include Glasgow’s Hug and Pint (100-cap.) and the Blue Arrow Jazz Club (200-cap).
Limited early bird tickets for the Great Western have already sold out. Full price day tickets are still available for £28 plus booking fee.
