Annual multi-arts festival bringing a thrilling mix of live music, performance and visual art to the East End of Glasgow. Now in its eighth year, this trailblazing event promises a stellar line-up of gigs, performances and art installations throughout the building with pop-up food and drink available all day.

Full programme to be announced with highlights including:

IDRIS ACKAMOOR AND THE PYRAMIDS, legendary West coast intergalactic jazz mavericks, return to Platform following their new album release An Angel Fell (Strut). Expect psychedelia, cosmic jazz and the healing power of music from this theatrical spiritual jazz ensemble.

Platform is delighted to welcome the return of keyboard and accordian maestro HAILU MERGIA. The Ethio-jazz funk pioneer recently released Lala Belu, his first full-length album in two decades featuring Ethiopian traditionals and Mergia originals.

DECLINE is dynamic relationship instantly and continuously transforming, told through the bodies of three distinct performers and is presented by CHIVAS/REID/SMEKOT. This collaboration is a meditation on things that draw us together and those that fall away using the distinct voices of dance and live music. A carefully instantly composed and researched movement vocabulary brings forth the richness of these qualities of these relationships to the forefront, with collaborative lighting by Sam Burnley.

MONSTER CHETWYND will present Turn the Ordinary into Adventure, a short film inspired by the novel The Master and Margarita by Mikhail Bulgakov. This subversive and magical film will see people transform through organic face creams and potions - a portal to the supernatural.

The film was commissioned by GoMA as part of the Glasgow 2018 European Championships. Turner prize nominated Monster Chetwynd worked with adult and young people groups from Platform to create the short film.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Eastern Promise are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
