Featuring Optimo and more

Legendary Glasgow based DJs Optimo are set to take part in the inaugural Rizla Riverboat Shuffle.

Rizla have spent the summer keeping feet moving, bringing dance talent to a field near you. Packing up the party bus, the Rizla Invisible Players have toured the country, with plenty more parties to come.

Alongside this, Rizla are organising a series of special one off events. Joining forces with some of Glasgow clubland's most iconic figures, Rizla have unveiled details of the inaugural Rizla Riverboat Shuffle.

A leisurely jaunt down Glasgow's Clyde river, fans will be invited onboard The Waverley - famously the last seagoing paddle steamer in the world.

Taking place on August 6th, the event will bring together two of Glasgow clubland's most influential institutions. Melting Pot is a renowned venue, hosting numerous acclaimed dance nights.

Hosting everyone from James Murphy to Horse Meat Disco, Melting Pot's resident DJs have built up an imposing reputation of their own. A dedicated house of disco oblivion the vinyl crew will be joined by Optimo.

Twitch & Wilkes need no introduction, with their Optimo night having rocked dancefloors across the world. Recently surrendering their Sub Club residency, the duo are preparing to release an exquisite Fabric mix.

After the party boat docks, fans will be ushered into The Sub Club for a night spearheaded by Serge Santiago and Tom Neville’s joint project Retro/Grade.

Rizla are planning to host a similar boat party event in London later this summer - check back for details!
