Hit The Road will bring its first tour of 2017 to Edinburgh’s La Belle Angele this summer.
The national youth music touring project is run by the Scottish Music Centre and provides young musicians (aged 14 – 19) living in Scotland the chance to learn about the industry before embarking on a three-date tour.
The scheme has already helped launch the career of Scottish artists including Model Aeroplanes, Be Charlotte and KLOË.
Arriving in the capital on June 25th, three bands will take to the stage for a taster of performing at a 600 capacity venue.
Formed in late 2015, Edinburgh’s alt-rock quartet MOSCOW will celebrate the release of their new single ‘September’. The band has already had a taster of local success selling out local venues including The Mash House and Sneaky Pete’s.
Glasgow’s grunge alt-rockers Sway will take to the stage following their support slots with acts including The View and Catholic Action. Their most recent single ‘Planet Earth’ racked up reviews and airplay on BBC Radio Scotland with Vic Galloway.
Releasing their debut EP ‘Last Orders’ in March, Grangemouth indie rockers The Patryns will launch their summer touring schedule at the show following local gigs around Glasgow.
Tickets for the gig cost £5 in advance and are available online in advance via See Tickets.
