The Gala Day Mainstage line-up details are as follows:

Doors open 19.00, gig starts at 19.30
The Happiness Hotel, 61 Queen Charlotte Street, Edinburgh, EH6 7EY
£6 / £10 combo ticket

LeithLate presents ALRIGHT HEN? – an intimate gig at The Happiness Hotel co-curated by our pal and ultimate riot grrrl Lou Mclean.

This incredible line-up in a unique Leith venue follows on from our free day-time gig on Leith Links, showcasing some of Scotland's best female-identifying musicians.

The night will kick-off with rebellious riffs from Girls Rock School, followed by folk-alt-rock sounds from singer-songwriter Annie Booth. The Countess of Fife will bring some country-punk anarchism to the stage, with Lou McLean seeing the gig off in style with her razor-sharp lyrics set to catchy pop melodies.
