To kick start the goNORTH Festival Tour schedule, Highland favourites The Side and Glasgow based trio GoGoBot will share billing with two of the biggest Scottish rock bands of all time, Simple Minds and Big Country at Summer In The City 2011.

‘Working with CK Events provides a fantastic platform for The Side and GoGoBot to reach a huge audience and support two of the most popular rock bands in Scotland’, said goEVENTS Director Shaun Arnold ‘CK Events’ ability to bring such big bands to Inverness is great for the Highlands and I’m sure ‘Summer in the City 2011’ will be a real highlight this season.’


CK Events Director Les Kidger added: ‘The Side and GoGo Bot are two of Scotland’s hottest groups. This will give them the opportunity to showcase their latest material to thousands of music fans, proving a great support act for Simple Minds and Big Country on the 16th July. It is sure to be a superb show.’

Following their performance at Inverness’s Northern Meeting Park on July 16, The Side and GoGoBot will soundtrack the official aftershow at Ironworks from 10pm. Everyone with a Summer In The City 2011 ticket will gain FREE entry, with additional tickets available from Ironworks for £5.00.

About MUSIC NEWS Scotland

MUSIC NEWS Scotland was born 12 years ago when dial up broadband was still around and desktop pc’s ruled. So we did what had been done since 220 AD in China and every month put ink on a printing plate, ran some paper over it and hey presto MNS was published (okay it was a wee bit more involved than that, but the basic principle was the same!) Move on to 2011 with high speed broadband and access to the www everywhere and the future was catching up with us rapidly. The volume of information flowing into MNS HQ was more than our monthly issue could cope with, and more and more Scottish music stories of great value were being spiked (an old press term not a dodgy drink). Reaching our vast number of readers in every conceivable nook and cranny of Scotland has always been a challenge monthly but to do that more often was physically not feasible. So we have doffed oor tam o’ shanter to the future and MNS is now a weekly digital publication, and not only weekly now but twice the number of pages than our old printed friend! Along with our weekly GIGguide and FESTIVALS! supplement we are now producing 72 pages of Scottish music news (and only music news) each and EVERY week:) We remain as true as ever to our launch roots of 8 years ago though - MUSIC NEWS Scotland supports all Scottish bands and performers no matter what style of music you’re involved in. Our aim is to circulate music industry news and to help to raise the profile of musicians and improve communications between genres. To help achieve this copies of MUSIC NEWS Scotland are emailed to key industry contacts throughout the UK. Thank you for your support over the last 8 years and please raise a glass to our digital future with you all. Thanks for your support, The MNS team!
