Gig Preview | Stag & Dagger Festival, Edinburgh

Stag and Dagger festival lineup

Stag and Dagger is Scotland’s biggest indoor, and multiple venue festival. But what is it and what can you expect?

Stag and Dagger is a unique festival. It spans over two days between Edinburgh (29th April) and Glasgow (30th April), Scotland’s two biggest hotspots for music. The main concepts of Stag and Dagger are multiple venues, multiple bands/artists, and multiple genres. There will be something for everyone at this festival!

For some artists, this is a hometown show, and some are only playing the Edinburgh date. These include Retro Video Club, Zaida LaRose, and Fright Years. While it’s a Scottish festival, there aren’t just Scottish talents included. Artists and bands like Alice Glass, 49th and Main, and Jeffrey Lewis & The Voltage are examples of this. As well as local and international artists, there is also an eclectic array of genres to be seen. These include, but aren’t limited to indie, punk, electronic, and grime.

Stag and Dagger is the perfect opportunity to go and see your favourite bands and artists, or perhaps discover new music. Your ticket allows you entry into the various venues participating in this festival, which are all within a few minutes walk from each other. What also makes Stag and Dagger unique is that there could be clashes between set times. This is all part of the fun, though. If you plan and structure your day around who you’d like to see, then this shouldn’t be a problem at all!
