We're delighted to report that this year's Triptych programme will be announced next week, Tuesday March 11th, at Fairfield Social Club, Govan, from 7pm onwards. As usual, we've bagged a handful of invites to the guestlist-only bash and we'd like to foist them in your direction!

There'll be entertainment, general japes, complimentary Tennent's Lager and a live set from local rock popinjays, Correcto - plus DJ stints from Harri and Teenage Fanclub's Gerard Love. Not to mention the grand unveiling, up-close and up-front, of all Triptych 08 programme news before it's published on March 12th.

We've 25 invites up for grabs, and each invite admits two: just email info@triptychfestival.com with LAUNCH INVITE in the subject header and, in a first-come first-served fashion, we'll get back to you!

Hope to see you there!

Triptych wrote: Hello again!

We're delighted to announce details of Triptych 08, which takes place through Glasgow, Edinburgh and Aberdeen from April 25-27. It'll revel, as ever, amidst international stars and grassroots talent - but this year will invoke a heightened sense of ceremony, as it will herald the festival's final fling: it's the last-ever Triptych.
Eight years on from Triptych's kinetic inception, Tennent's believe that the time is ripe to galvanise Scotland's music map once more: the aural landscape is undergoing seismic changes and, with this in mind, we're moving forward with a new, and truly unique, live platform for music fans: The Tennent's Mutual.
An unprecedented initiative that'll empower music lovers to shape, create and dictate gig provision across Scotland, The Tennent's Mutual will be fully unveiled in early April. You can sign up to get all the news as soon as we reveal it at www.tennentsmutual.com

By way of celebrating Triptych's excellence, meanwhile, the festival will be going out with a weekend-long cacophonic swansong: three cities over Scotland; three days and nights of the most electrifying music the world has to offer.

Many friends will return for our final fling - Candi Staton, Gilles Peterson, Mogwai and Four Tet among them; while some of popular music's most notorious figures are set to present their Scottish live debuts, including Wu Tang trailblazer The RZA and techno architects Model 500. An astral cast of grassroots stars includes The Fence Collective, Malcolm Middleton, Errors and Frightened Rabbit.

Our film programme features Jim Jarmusch's Ghost Dog - The Way of the Samurai (with Q&A from Wu Tang overlord The RZA); celluloid Detroit homage High Tech Soul (with Q&A from Derrick May); and American folklorist Alan Lomax's must-see The Land Where The Blues Began.

This year's artwork is a visual homage to Triptych, as captured through the eyes of fans. While erstwhile festival illustrators have included Alasdair Gray and David Shrigley, our ultimate ocular anthology is largely - and fittingly - chronicled by the snaps of gig-goers.
All that remains is to reinforce our huge gratitude for your support over the years. Here's to an awesome Triptych adieu - but here's also to a live music revolution - as we look to the future with The Tennent's Mutual.

That Triptych line up is awfull!! Normally there's about ten folk I want to see. This year I might see RZA, Four Tet, Mogwai, Krafty Kuts and David Shrigley but even then I'm not fussed about any of them. Presumably half them are just playing the weedge Evil

Gonna get tickets for Lou Reed in Edinburgh in June I think Cool
