SATURDAY 10TH SEPTEMBER

Saturday's line-up features some of the most influential and (genuine) legends of house and techno, a chance to experience the historical reach of contemporary dance music right back to its embryonic beginnings, in the presence of the ground-breaking pioneers who brought it into being.
A day long programme of electronic and DJ performances.

// JEFF MILLS // FRANKIE KNUCKLES // DERRICK MAY // JOAQUIN "JOE" CLAUSSELL // LENI FAKI // SLAM //  LEVON VINCENT // ANDREW PIRIE //

SUNDAY 11TH SEPTEMBER

The Sunday line-up of live band performances is something entirely different. Here post-punk institution The Fall will play alongside Mercury nominated newcomers Wild Beasts, Scottish post-rock behemoths Mogwai play live alongside fellow scots (and their recent US tour mates) Errors, while there are further full live band performances from the darlings of post-dubstep Mount Kimbie, and the lush elecronic futurism of Stockholm's The Field.

// MOGWAI // WILD BEASTS // THE FALL // MOUNT KIMBIE // THE ORB // ERRORS // JIMMY EDGAR // ORGANS OF LOVE // KONX-OM-PAX //

Paul Thomson (FRANZ FERDINAND) & Richard (NUMBERS) djing between acts through day.


Electric Frog continues its evolution, building on the success of previous events, highlights of which include; Liquid Liquid and Simian Mobile Disco's live performances alongside Felix Da Housecat and Alter Ego at their Street Carnival; Francois Kevorkian, Green Velvet and Slam live at the Easter Weekend;  live performances with Marc Houle and Nitzer Ebb alongside dj exclusives from Dubfire and DJ Funk at the July's Summer session.

As with the programming of previous editions of the Electric Frog, a balance is deliberately drawn between new and old, home-grown and visiting talent ,with the festival bringing international acts to appear in Glasgow alongside some of our own brightest home grown musical heroes. Its guiding ethos to mix what is new and exciting in the contemporary musical scene with an opportunity to experience some of the seminal artists whose work has inspired many over the years and continues to exert an influence on the present.

Electric Frog 2011 is a collaboration between Liquid Events, SWG3, Slam Events/Pressure and Synergy Concerts.
