Cross The Tracks

Cross the Tracks is back in 2018 with a sensational line up, featuring some of the most exciting musicians on the scene right now, including  Soweto Kinch, K.O.G. & The Zongo Brigade, Keyon Harrold, The Hypnotic Brass Ensemble, Bokanté and Zara McFarlane. 

Expect hip-hop and rap crossing over modern jazz; West African rhythms and Afrobeat mixed with jazz, rap, dancehall, reggae and dub; Zeppelin-esque blues stomp fused with folkloric Caribbean kaladja; blazing brass attacks trafficking in a free-flowing blend of jazz, hip-hop and Afrobeat; DJ and producers scratching and mixing the best of Afrobeat, bass, house, jazz, funk and soul records, bridging the gap between jazz and electronic music. 

And for the first time ever in the history of the Festival, Cross The Tracks presents: The Festival Club, keeping the music going long after the other venues have closed up shop, featuring the hottest bands and DJs from Scotland,  including Rebecca Vasmant, Werkha (live band), Samson Sounds, Samedia Shebeen, Fat-Suit, Rumba de Bodas and more!
