Other acts include: Wu-Lu, Fat Dog, Theo Bleak, Aine Deane, Becky Sikasa, Butch Kassidy, Cameron Hayes, Conchur White, Gently Tender, Naima Bock, Unschooling, The Itch, Wooze, The Wife Guys of Reddit, Water Machine, Carsick Charlie, Former Champ, Last Boy, Ruby Gaines, Anorak and Fantastic Man.
As part of this year’s line up, Scottish DIY indie label Lost Map Records - based on the beautiful Island of Eigg and home to Pictish Trail, Rozi Plain, Free Love and many more - will also be hosting a specially-curated lineup at The Piping Centre, featuring label favourites including label supergroup Weird Wave alongside Lost Map favourites Firestations, Sulka, Kinbote, Victoria Hume and Lost Map DJs.
We can't wait to see Great Western Road packed once more with music-hungry fans looking to discover their new favourite artists and look forward to seeing you all in November.
Festival Organiser Daniel Mutch said: “We are delighted to bring The Great Western back to the West End in November and have worked really hard to pack the 2023 edition with what we feel are some of the most dynamic and exciting artists on the live circuit at the moment.
“From the long awaited festival return of Warmduscher to the trailblazing Queer-Pop Icon LYNKS, with a strong emphasis on local talent too.
