Scotland’s biggest night of traditional music, Hoolie in the Hydro, will return to Glasgow’s iconic OVO Hydro on Saturday 7th December 2024 to commemorate 100 years of Scottish music. Following the watershed success of previous editions, this world-renowned event promises to be another groundbreaking moment for Scotland’s vibrant music scene.

Reigniting the bid to make history once again by being the single biggest night of traditional music to have ever taken place in Scotland, Hoolie in the Hydro will mark a century of musical talent by featuring a star-studded line-up of some of Scotland’s most successful bands, all of which are celebrating a milestone year as part of the Scottish music industry. Their combined landmark years amount to what has been an incredibly exciting, forward-thinking, genre-busting century for Scottish traditional music which will culminate in this December’s Hoolie 100.

Luminary pioneers Capercaillie will join the Hoolie 100 line-up. Internationally recognised as folk trailblazers, they are celebrating 40 years at the heart of the Scottish traditional music scene. A symbol of Scotland’s cultural renaissance, the band has toured in more than 30 countries, sold over one-million albums and entered the pop charts with ‘Coisich a Ruin’ - the first Gaelic single to reach the Official Top 40.

Next in the iconic and long-serving line-up are Skerryvore. Renowned for their high energy performances and their electrifying fusion of folk, trad, rock and pop, it’s little wonder this dynamic 8-piece are three time winners of Scotland’s ‘Live Act of the Year’ award at the MG ALBA Scots Trad Music Awards. The band have evolved from their humble beginnings to become an integral part of the movement that has reignited Scotland’s traditional music scene.

Celebrating 15 years at the centre of Scotland’s thriving music scene are multi award-winning supergroup Mànran. Renowned the world over for their electrifying live performances, their innovative blend of traditional and modern instruments, along with outstanding Gaelic and English songs, has won them international acclaim and fans worldwide. The band's dynamic fusion of folk-rock elements makes them a perennial favourite within the ever-evolving Scottish music scene.

Also marking 15 years in the industry are RURA who are undoubtedly one of Scotland’s leading instrumental groups. Their rugged and intricate music and their blend of fiddle, Highland pipes, flute, bodhrán, and guitar continue to create a powerful and moving sound 15 years after their inception.

The newest band within the line-up, but in no way juvenile in sound, talent or innovation, is Talisk. The three-piece celebrate a decade of pushing boundaries and exploring new and exciting musical sounds. Their explosively energetic performances have earned them a die-hard global following. With numerous awards under their belt, the trio’s music is both traditional and refreshingly contemporary.
