Oxjam Shetland Takeover 2013 â€“ Saturday 26th Oct
4 venues. Dozens of artists. 1 wristband.
After the success of last year's Takeover, we're back to make it bigger and better..!
On Saturday 26th, from 2pm until 2am, Lerwick will come alive with various gigs of all sorts of genres, dotted all around the town, showcasing the greatest talents Shetland has to offer.
This 12 HOUR musical extravaganza will take place in some of our finest venues â€“ Mareel, Lerwick Boating Club, Da Wheel Bar and Baroc, and there will be something for everyone â€“ folk, heavy metal, rock, blues, acoustic and jazz...
The gigs at each venue are staggered throughout the day, so you can attend as much as you can, hopping from one place to another with an ALL ACCESS wristband.
Wristbands for 18+ are priced at Â£10, and you have full access to all venues â€“ provided you get there early enough!
Wristbands for under 18s are Â£6, and you can get into Mareel and the Lerwick Boating Club.
This Takeover day is organised entirely by volunteers, and all musicians are donating their time and skills for nothing. All proceeds go straight to Oxfam, as part of their annual, UK-wide music festival.
This is such a great opportunity for Shetland, to show the rest of the UK what weâ€™re made of, and how much money we can raise for such a brilliant cause!
Local music, global impact â™¥
