On 17 September, Naples-born house music maverick RIVA STARR joins The Main Stage at ShangriLa. One of the producers behind the 2013 worldwide smash-hit anthem Eat Sleep Rave Repeat, Starr burst into the house music scene in 2009 with his cheeky remixes, bootlegs and re:chunks. Over the years he has been praised by the likes of A-Trak, Tiesto, Gilles Peterson, Pete Tong, Annie Mac and David Rodigan.
Mixing in Latin, Balkan and other exotic sounds on his productions, he has collaborated with Fatboy Slim, Beardyman, Roots Manuva and others. He has remixed everyone from Usher and Estelle to Cajmere and Major Lazer, with releases on Southern Fried, Dirtybird, Kindish and other labels.
Warm up duties will be handled by ShangriLa resident Vilmos, and in The Dome, Boogaloo will keep you entertained. Duffy is on usual duties in the Live Lounge – firing out all your favourite acoustic numbers. The Beats Tent is back with a bang – line up TBC. If you managed to find this last season, you probably never left.
ShangriLa is a clubbing experience like no other. Every Wednesday night, Glasgow’s infamous underground railway arches will be transformed into a treasure chest of surprises where anything goes, youth is eternal, and drinks prices are eternally low…
With entertainment and décor inspired by festivals across the globe and some of the hottest DJ names around providing the soundtrack, each week will offer a completely different experience.
Please enter through Midland Street entrance.

As Scotland’s original superclub, the Arches is the stuff of clubbing legend. There really is no other venue like it in the world.
Repeatedly voted one of the top 100 clubs in the world in DJ magazine, the industrial brick arches are home to a continuous roster of the world’s most in demand DJs and producers from across the dance spectrum, whether it be minimal techno, big bassline electro, hardstyle, deep house, UK bass, dubstep or trance.
With a Funktion 1 soundsystem and three fully stocked bars spread over six subterranean arches, the space is transformed each weekend depending on the faces behind the decks. From huge, sell out nights with platinum selling Ibiza trendsetters such as Alesso and Laidback Luke or legendary acts such as Fatboy Slim, Carl Cox and Jeff Mills, to the hottest, most-hyped names on the dance scene’s lips – from Jamie Jones and Nina Kraviz to Jackmaster and Omar S, ours is one of the most diverse club programmes in the city.
As well as the Arches’ own club nights, which have recently brought the likes of Hot Creations label, Madeon and Chase & Status to the venue, for many fans the Arches is synonymous with either of its two biggest nights, Pressure and Colours.
Slam have now been playing and promoting in the Arches since 1992 with their monthly techno and house night Pressure celebrating it’s 16th anniversary in November 2014. Normally taking place on the last Friday of the month, Pressure sees the biggest names in the game playing regularly, with guests like Richie Hawtin, Ben Klock, Laurent Garnier, Joris Voorn, Maya Jane Coles, Pan-Pot, Chris Liebing, Dave Clarke, Len Faki, Dubfire, Gary Beck, Visonquest, Heidi, Vitalic and Green Velvet joining resident DJs Slam in recent times.
Scotland’s biggest dance promoter, Colours regularly bring the biggest and best names in big room house, tech-house, electro and trance to the venue, with recent guests including Alesso, Otto Knows, Laidback Luke, Dannic, Hardwell, Markus Schulz, Showtek, Gareth Emery, Nervo, AN21 & Max Vangeli, Nicky Romero and many more.
