Scotland’s Avant-Garde and Experimental Festivals

Source: The Skinny.

Experimental music, in its curious, searching nature can be a hard sell to funders and grant-givers and as such many of the indie festivals that had an experimental strand have curbed that instinct, leaning more into the ongoing waves of post-punk that remains unstoppably bankable. But still there are people doggedly dragging themselves through this mire to bring the most interesting music on the planet to these shores, and, perhaps because the act of trying to do anything good begins to feel defiant, it’s looking like an exciting year ahead for experimental music.
