Riverside Festival in pictures as techno mecca celebrates ten years

Thousands flocked to the Riverside Museum in the sunshine for the two-day electronic mecca over the weekend.

Thousands flocked to Glasgow for the tenth edition of Riverside Festival over the weekend.

Ravers came out in force to dance in the scorching heat as Scotland’s premier electronic music event celebrated its tenth birthday at the Riverside Museum.

The lineup boasted a fusion of underground artists, rising stars and globally renowned DJs across three stages as dance fans made the most of the sunshine by the Clyde.

Saturday brought global superstar Patrick Topping, a stomping jungle and drum and bass-infused debut from Sherelle and Australian DJ Mall Grab closing out the Square Stage on Saturday.

Some of Scotland’s homegrown favourites also hit the decks over the weekend; Denis Sulta returned for the first time since 2019, followed by Eclair Fifi and Big Miz going back to back.

Sunday saw techno veterans Slam join forced with Fraz.ier after blistering sets from Spanish vinyl-only selector Hector Oaks, Patrick Mason and Paula Temple on the Square Stage.

Dave Clarke, co-festival director, said: “We couldn’t have wished for a better weekend as we celebrated our tenth edition of Riverside Festival in glorious sunshine.

“Bringing homegrown talent as well as international acts to Glasgow every year for the event is always a really special experience, and 2023 was one of our best to date. Here’s to ten more years of Riverside.”
