Platform 18 open-air rave returns to Glasgow with Ben Sims and Richie Hawtin

By Christina O'Neill

Platform 18 is returning to Glasgow with a three-day festival this month.

The renowned street party starters are back with three open-air raves on West Street south of the Clyde between September 24 and 26, with resident and curator Ivan Kutz pulling out all the stops for the recently added Friday date.

Ben Sims, Luke Slater, Harvey McKay, Sosak and Lunarpatz take centre stage and festival goers will also be treated to a live set from techno veteran Surgeon.

Saturday will see Richie Hawtin, Fjaak Live and Frazi.er and more on the decks, with Jackmaster, E-Dancer and Domenic Cappello taking over on Sunday.

Festival organisers also revealed that more than £5,000 has been raised for the Scottish Association for Mental Health through Platform 18.

Ivan said: "The SAMH charity is very close to my heart since losing a close friend to suicide... this spurred me on to set up the street party and build it all around mental health awareness."

Gillian McManus, community fundraising manager at SAMH, shared her appreciation for Platform 18's support, adding: "We'd like to say a huge thank you to Platform 18 for choosing to fundraise for SAMH. This money will help SAMH raise awareness, promote good mental health and support those in Scotland affected by mental health problems.”

Tickets are still available and are priced between £28 for Friday and £78 for three-day and are available on Skiddle.
