Melting Pot x Heverlee present Queen’s Park Disco Sessions, bringing the good people of Glasgow the opportunity to visit an era of pure decadence, excess, glamour and music that became the blue print for modern day dance music. What's more, we are playing this out in the leafy confines of Queen's Park Bandstand!

Founded mainly in New York City, a phenomenon happened that changed music and nightclubs forever - from the underground bath houses hosted by Frankie Knuckles and the apartments parties held by David Mancuso at The Loft and Nicky Siano's Gallery parties, to the opulence of Studio 54 with its regular celeb guests to the Paradise Garage hosted by Larry Levan. They were the venues that were breaking the boundaries - DJs were now mixing records, gay and straight, rich and poor audiences were now mixing together and producers such as Walter Gibbons, Giorgio Moroder and Tom Moulton were making records now specifically for the dance floor.

Artists like Chaka Khan, Diana Ross, Gloria Gaynor, Chic, Sylvester and Donna Summer were taking over the world - it was a revolution.

The spirit of that eras will descend on Queen's Park with its music, performers, glitter bomb (squirrel friendly) face decorators plus much more.

Ticket Pledge. At the moment, Level Zero allows Queen’s Park Arena events to go ahead as we are outdoor with limited capacity - it’s widely viewed that the current Level Zero will see a far wider lifting of restrictions in the near future.

Should there be any issues with the event going ahead due to Covid issues, you can receive a face value refund or we’ll carry the ticket automatically over to the rescheduled date - the choice is yours, but it removes any worries you may or may not have.

Melting Pot and Heverlee are partnering with some of the creative music and artist projects going on in the Southside with Radio Buena Vida community station, Some Great Rewards Record Store and local artist Molly Hankinson who created the Queen’s Park Disco Sessions artwork.
