Immersive dance promoters elrow are coming to Glasgow. The Barcelona-based event specialists make their Scottish debut by bringing a Sambodromo de Brasil experience to SWG3 on Saturday 18th and Sunday 19th March. Sizzling with carnival vibes the themed entertainment will include stilt-walking samba dancers, wild tropical beasts and lost explorers roaming amidst thick foliage and exotic jungle blossoms across two rooms of music at SWG3.
Tickets sold out in record time as 75,000 fans rushed for tickets to the weekender.
Each night will see a headline back-to-back set from local hero Jackmaster, who’s been a driving force behind bringing elrow to Finnieston.
Jackmaster’s Sunday night sparring partner and regular cohort Jasper James said: “I’m really happy to be a part of elrow’s first visit to Scotland – having been to the elrow parties in Barcelona and Ibiza I can tell our crazy Glasgow crowd are going to have a belter.”
Before their arrival in the city, we had Five Quick Questions for the elrow promoters.
1. Why did you decide to come to Glasgow?
Glasgow has a rich history of clubbing and we felt it was the perfect city to introduce elrow to Scotland for the first time. We have teamed up with local hero Jackmaster which will make the events even more special.
2. What makes an Elrow show different from other dance events?
The focus of elrow events is on performance, big production, toys and inflatables and a tons of confetti!
We put all our effort into making sure the events are fully immersive with lots of performers and stilt-walkers entertaining the crowd, which helps create a unique experience that’s different from all other club events.
3. Tell us about the Sambodromo de Brasil theme, what will the event look like?
Sambodromo do Brasil is our jungle themed Carnival event.
Expect Amazonian natives, colourful characters, beasts, Samba dancers, wild animals of all kinds and great adventurers. It is one of the most vibrant themes and really captures the essence of elrows energy and fun!
4. What can we expect from the music?
The lineup has been announced for both days and features some of the best names in house and techno. Local legends Jackmaster and Jasper James will be representing Glasgow in force, along with appearances across the weekend from Denis Sulta, wAFF, Edu Imbernon, Robert James, Theo Kottis and elrow residents De La Swing and Bastian Bux.
5. What’s next for Elrow?
We have a busy year of events all across the UK. On Saturday 11th March we hold our biggest event to date at Tobacco Dock in London, with after parties at Village Underground.
We also will be hosting stages at some of the best festivals including Snowbombing, Parklife, Wild Life, Hideout. Plus keep an eye out for big summer elrow UK news soon.
