Detour is back. Since our last night in Bloc, we’ve been to every festival in Scotland, some in England, and even one in Texas.  We are planning some pretty big things. But it’s been too long since we  put on a gig in Glasgow, and there are far too many incredible bands we  want to show you.  We also want to show the new students in Glasgow just what a town they’re moving to. If you’re new to Detour, and haven’t been before - then expect some of  Scotland’s best bands doing full sets, acoustic acts, special guests, DJ  sets, dancing, drinking and lots of banter, all in an intimate venue,  all for free. AND THIS TIME? - Cure your hangover with us.  On Sunday afternoon, we will be putting on chilled out live music,  serving discounted breakfasts, and giving you cheap Bloody Marys.  Sometimes, the best part of the party is the cleanup in the morning. It all kicks off from 9pm on Saturday, we’ll have some of Scotland’s  finest musical acts, special guests, surprises, videos, competitions,  and DJ sets until 3am. There will be a lot of dancing, there will be a  lot of Balkan.  Detour is free. No money. Just turn up. We are really massively excited about this. Tell your friends. The  bands have got us all flustered. We have a summer’s worth of ideas and  energy to cram into 6 crazy hours.

Detour is all about supporting new Scottish music. We are passionate about the bands that we discover in this wee country of ours - there are so many incredible artists out there, it’s bloody brilliant.
For the second year running at the Wickerman Festival - a quite mad jamboree near Dumfries involving fire, old punks, and 80s rock bands - we have been able to team up with two other teams dedicated to showcasing the best in new Scottish music - the Solus Tent team, and Glasgow Podcart. 
The Solus Tent plays host to the most diverse, interesting - and dare we say it - best, lineup of all the ‘new music’ stages at Scottish festivals. We wanted to take a wee batch of the best bands playing there over the weekend, and do something a bit special.
Thankfully, we had the delightful Glasgow Podcart there to help us; record sound, organise stuff, and generally be amazing.

This is Citizens - a Glasgow band that will break your ears.
