From Anti-Valentines bopping with Aidan Moffat (Arab Strap) to electro-popping with Marnie (Ladytron), we’ve thrown some unforgettable nights – especially our iconic birthday parties. Paolo Nutini, Claire from Steps and Joe McFadden were all spotted dancing to Glasgow’s best 80’s wedding group Band Of Gold at our 10th Birthday, then legendary Newsnight host Kirsty Wark took to the decks for our 11th Birthday treat.
We’ve also had Emmy-Kate & Marie (Kenickie), Prides, Ally McCrae (Radio 1), The Long Blondes, Manda Rin (Bis), The Twilight Sad, We Were Promised Jetpacks, Kirstin (WHITE) and Robert Florence (Burnistoun) all spinning tunes over the years. We even had a rare live set from the late great Ari Up (The Slits).
The Pretty Ugly DJs have also graced the decks at T in the Park, The SAY Awards, Scottish BAFTAs, Herald Fashion Awards, Glasgow Film Festival and The Vintage Festival, have supported Chvrches, Ladyhawke and Crystal Castles and have played after shows for Madonna, Beyoncé and U2.
Recently we DJ’ed on the red carpet for the T2 Trainspotting World Premiere which was broadcast worldwide on Facebook Live. We’ve worked with fashion brands from Armani to Topshop and Abandon Ship Apparel to Ten Cate, and for various film productions on their wrap party entertainment from Sunshine On Leith to The Wife to Stonemouth.
