Madness, Biffy Clyro, Snow Patrol and Fatboy Slim are the first acts to be confirmed for a new pop-up Edinburgh gig venue in summer 2022.

The Big Top at the Royal Highland Centre will play host these four names, with more to be confirmed, in June next year.

The first show is on June 12th when Madness will return to Scotland following shows earlier this month. “We are still wiping away the sweat from this weekend’s gigs in Aberdeen and Glasgow,” the band said, “but we love the smell of Scotland, only seems right to come play for the Madheads in Edinburgh. Bring on the summer.”

Fatboy Slim also follows a sold-out Scottish gig, at Glasgow’s OVO Hydro in November as part of his ‘We’ve Come A Long Long Way Together’ tour.

He will play at The Big Top on June 18th 2022 and said: “It had been a while since I was last in Scotland and quite frankly, I can’t wait to come back. Nothing beats an up for it Scottish crowd. Well, maybe an up for it Scottish crowd in a green field in the middle of summer… See you soon Edinburgh.”

Snow Patrol will appear at The Big Top on June 23rd 2022 and the band’s Gary Lightbody said: “We are so excited to play in Scotland again. One of our very favourite shows this year was TRNSMT and Scottish crowds are always utterly stellar. It’s always a joy to play in Edinburgh. We can’t wait to get back to Scotland for the show.”

And another Scottish-formed act, Biffy Clyro, will appear on 25th June 2022.
