Scotland’s newest festival of cutting-edge art and music. JUPITER RISING will feature an excellent line-up, with Mercury-prize nominees The Comet is Coming, The Vaselines, Alpha Maid and OH141.
Revellers can expect an intelligently curated programme, from indie rock to experimental dance and psychedelic jazz. Following on from the success of 2018, Sarra Wild from the Glasgow-based platform, club night and radio show OH141 will return to curate the late-night stage in the woods.
Further confirmed acts for 2019 include interdisciplinary artists Duncan Marquiss and Natasha Lall who question mainstream with their genre-defying work across film, performance, sound and text.
Musicians ILL, Total Leatherette, Mystic Business, Ben Vince, Overwhelmed, Cucina Povera, DJ Scotia and Current Affairs will bring an eclectic mix of punk, synthetic and experimental dance to this unique festival.
London-based band, The Comet is Coming is the soundtrack to an imagined apocalypse, incorporating elements of jazz, electronica, funk and psychedelic rock. Debuting music for their forthcoming Impulse! records release (March 2019), the band are tipped for a Mercury prize this year, following their 2016 nomination for their debut album, Channel the Spirits.
Glasgow favourites, The Vaselines and Sarra Wild will join as headliners, bringing their legendary indie rock sound and alternative club nights to the distinctive landscape of Jupiter Artland.
Formed in 1986, The Vaselines became a favourite of Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain, and have gone on to
perform at Reading Festival, Tigerfest and Latitude Festival.
Co-founder of Glaswegian night club and collective OH141, Sarra Wild creates transformative DJ sets,
creating community and identity through her alternative sounds. Alongside OH141, Sarra works with Grassroots Glasgow, aiming to improve representation within electronic music for women, people of colour and members of the LGBTQ+ community.
