Shooglenifty are famous the world over for inventing Techno Ceilidh, Acid Croft and Hypnofolkadelia.

The Chicago Tribune described them as “a bit like a jam between the Tannahill Weavers, Phish and The Chemical Brothers.”

The show starts at 8pm. Tickets cost £15 and £14 concessions.

There will be a complete change of pace on Saturday night (November 29) at the seafront venue when the Moonlight Serenade Orchestra returns.

The concert starts at 7.30pm.

Tickets cost £14.
