AN ARBROATH DJ collective has been asked to support a major gig at one of Scotland’s biggest music venues.
Epic Nites, comprising Scott Williams, James Bell, Garry Gray and Jocky McLean have been asked to support Swedish House Mafia’s Axwell at the O2 Academy in Glasgow on Easter Sunday.
DJ Axwell, of chart-toppers Swedish House Mafia has had his own chart success with tracks such as ‘I found you’ and ‘Tell me why’ and online hit ‘Greyhound’.
The boys have enjoyed great success in the last year supporting world famous acts like Gareth Emery, Sander Van Doom, Hardwell and DJ Tiesto.
The Epic story began three years ago in The Crown, Arbroath, where their popularity earned them a monthly residency at the Waterfront.
After organising a ‘Sweatbox Reunion’ featuring DJ Michael Kilkie that attracted 1,000 people the Epic DJs’ popularity took off.
A second sweatbox night at the Waterfront was again a sell-out, and The Sun described it as one of the top three events in the country that weekend.
Looking forward to the challenge of Easter Weekend, Scott said: “It’s going to be insane for us. We will be playing in Forfar supporting Scottish DJ legend Jon Mancini then after a couple of hours sleep driving down to Glasgow.
“We have a very busy and exciting summer ahead of us with so many amazing gigs coming up it’s unreal. We really cannot believe how much we’ve achieved in such a small space of time.
“There are so many people who have been involved and come to our gigs and supported us to help make this happen and we owe them a big thanks. They make all the hard work worth while.”
Epic Nites will be appearing at the Glasgow O2 Arena on Sunday, April 8, for tickets search for Epic Nites on Facebook.
