A rave tent famous for hosting dance music legends including Jeff Mills and the Chemical Brothers is making a comeback for a summer of 'freedom and togetherness'.

The Slam Tent began in 1997 and was a staple at festivals including T in the Park for 20 years until it was put away five years ago.

Now organisers are hoping to tap into the same vibes from the heyday of rave, by getting the 5,000 capacity tent back into use for a three-day festival in the summer, to be hosted on the outskirts of Edinburgh.

Daft Punk and Carl Cox have performed in the tent along with Basement Jazz and Nina Kravitz and Detroit techno guru Jeff Mills.

This year Scottish artists will be chosen by producer/DJ duo Slam, Stuart McMillan and Orde Meikle.

Glasgow Times:

Stuart McMillan and Orde Meikle said: “Scotland’s clubbers are desperate to reunite and will finally come together again to celebrate freedom, unity and togetherness.

"It is that same feeling that existed in the early days of rave.

"We’re bringing it back.

"This will be very special.’

Glasgow Times:

Tom Ketley, Director of FLY said: “The Slam Tent was Scotland's mecca of clubbing.

"As we are now finally looking forward to a return of dancefloors this summer, it seems like now is the right time to bring it back."

The location has yet to be revealed and tickets go on sale next week.
