Dance Tent DJs set for ‘mind blowing’ Music at the Multiverse weekend
- From Mallorca Lee and Malcolm X to Bay City Rollers and Glasvegas
- Live music and DJs at one of Scotland’s most amazing venues
Mallorca Lee (ultra-sonic x Public Domain), Malcolm X and a host of other DJs are gearing up for a mind-blowing weekend in the new Dance Tent at this year’s Music at the Multiverse.
At the same time there will be a stellar line up of live bands – from Glasvegas to the Bay City Rollers – entertaining audiences on the Main Stage.
The two-day event, on 3-4 September, at Crawick Multiverse (a spectacular 55-acre environmental artwork and visitor attraction inspired by the sun, stars and colliding galaxies) will feature a new Dance Tent in addition to the Main Stage.
Mallorca Lee will be bringing his 1994 brand on the Sunday to play a whole day of Old Skool music by the artists responsible for making back in the day so unforgettable.
He said: “I’m really excited by this, after 10 years of sell-out 1994 events in Glasgow, this is the first time we’ve taken it outside in the fresh air!”
“And it’s going to be amazing – it’s such a spectacular place. And having 1994 in a tent, in a field, with a great line-up, filled with brilliant music – it’s right back to the roots of rave.”
Among the other DJs taking part is Malcolm X, from Kelloholm, close to Crawick Multiverse who has been recruiting some of the best local DJs for the Saturday – as well as arranging for the well-known Jamie B to fly in from Belfast.
Malcolm X, who has been a DJ for 30 years, said: “The first thing that’s going to blow people’s minds is the location – it’s just incredible and that’s before you even add in the music.
“But having dance music and a two-day event in a place like the Multiverse is just incredible, especially when you’ve got superstars like Mallorca there, along with Jamie B and some really great guests including DJ’s from the region.”

Councillor Archie Dryburgh, Chair of the Council’s Communities Committee said: “Music at the Multiverse continues our region’s brilliant recent tradition of great live music events. Don’t miss the opportunity to go up to the Crawick Multiverse at Sanquhar to take in the event and enjoy the scenery and fab line up.
