Colours, a British promoting agency, has been bringing the world’s biggest DJs to Scotland since 1995. In only the last four months, the Glaswegian promoters have been responsible for attracting massive acts like Bingo Players, W&W, Zedd, Paul Van Dyk, Laidback Luke, Fatboy Slim, Showtek, 2manydjs, Sander Van Doorn, Nicky Romero, Chuckie, and many more to Scotland. Colours has turned Glasgow into one of Europe’s top all year round party destinations. Because of them, today we see Glasgow gigs on nearly every european tour.
This Saturday on February 1st, Colours will celebrate its 19th anniversary with a massive “birthday” event that features a stacked lineup that includes the likes of MAKJ, Ferry Corsten, Benny Benassi, Blasterjaxx, Tall Paul, Marco V, Giuseppe Ottaviani, Sied Van Riel, and many more at the famous Arches in Glasgow, Scotland. The event will be held from 10:30 PM to 5:00 AM.
The show will be one of the biggest for rising star MAKJ, who is currently embarking on his first european tour. While this will be Benny Benassi and Ferry Corsten‘s last european gigs for a while as the American music festival season edges closer with the approach of Spring.
This event is a must-see for any EDM fan in Scotland or even northern England. For anyone who has never been to The Arches before: you don’t know what you are in for. The Arches has been ranked in previous DJ Mag polls as the 12th best club in the world. The Arches is a massive venue located directly underground Glasgow’s Central Railway Station in arched brick tunnels that used to be used by trains using the train station. Here are some photos:
As I said before, this is a must see event for anyone who lives in northern Britain. I have seen MAKJ, Ferry Corsten, and Benny Benassi multiple times and they’ve never failed at impressing me. In addition, this will be MAKJ‘s debut UK gig. For anyone down south who cannot make the show, Ferry Corsten will be playing tonight Friday, January 31st at the Ministry of Sound in London. You can find MAKJ‘s remaining european tour dates here:
More information on the show tomorrow night and how to buy tickets can be found here. Tickets are only 25 quid, but act fast if you want to go; tickets are selling fast!
If you live in Scotland and still can’t go: no worries. Colours has a killer schedule for the next few weeks that includes top talent like Hardwell, Fedde LeGrand, Dash Berlin, Tommy Trash, DVBBS, and Mat Zo.
So I hope to see you there, and until then Happy Birthday Colours!
