Have a Screamadelic time at the Big Top

Billed as one of the music highlights this year, Galway Arts Festival gets set to host the legendary Primal Scream Live at the Festival Big Top on Friday July 24 at 8pm. The band will co-headline with the superb Spiritualized. Bobby Gillespie formed the band in the mid-80s while drumming for goth-tinged noise rockers the Jesus and Mary Chain. After a brief detour to punk hard rock, the group reinvented itself as a dance band in the early 90s, following through on the pop and acid house fusions of the Stone Roses and Happy Mondays. They created the ultimate indie pop and dance fusion album, Screamadelica, in 1991. The album broke down boundaries and changed the face of British pop music in the 90s, helping to make dance and techno acceptable to the rock mainstream.
