Hoolie in the Hydro

9 December @ 6:30 pm - 11:00 pm

£35 – £50
Following the success of last year’s inaugural event, Hoolie in the Hydro will return to Glasgow’s OVO Hydro on Saturday 9th December 2023, with an all-star line-up featuring some of the top names on the Scottish music scene.
Organised by Gary Innes, the line-up includes Scottish supergroup Mànran, Celtic rockers Wolfstone, festival favourites Trail West, and social media singing sensation Nati Dreddd, plus a special collaboration that will celebrate 50 Years of Runrig, featuring an array of special guests. The iconic Runrig drummer Iain Bayne will lead the celebration, with legendary singer Julie Fowlis, Wolfstone founding member and fiddle player Duncan Chisholm and Gary Innes, among those joining him on stage to celebrate Runrig’s incredible 50th anniversary milestone. The inimitable Julie Fowlis will also compere the evening, alongside the world-renowned Hebridean Baker, Coinneach MacLeod, who is set to cook up a storm with the Hydro audience, alongside sharing a recipe or two.

The original idea for Hoolie in the Hydro was first sparked in January 2020 after Gary reached 20,000 likes on his Facebook page. To celebrate, he put out a slightly tongue in cheek post which said if half of the people who had ‘liked’ his page bought a ticket for the Hydro, they could have the world’s biggest ceilidh. The likes, shares and support for the idea flooded in, so in early March 2020, Gary went ahead and booked Scotland’s largest indoor venue for December 2022.
