Party will round off Saturday’s independence rally


A mix of live bands and DJs will help Scots “party for independence” at an event following a pro-independence march and rally in Edinburgh this weekend.

Thousands of independence supporters are expected to descend on the capital for the march and rally this Saturday, September 22, and Party for Independence organisers will be looking to keep the music and festivities going well into the evening.

With coach-loads of supporters travelling from all over Scotland to join the march and hear high profile speakers including First Minister Alex Salmond, Scottish Green Party leader Patrick Harvie, and comedian and commentator Hardeep Singh Kohli, those looking to keep the party going will be treated to four hours of live music to round off the evening.

Performers at the event in Espionage nightclub include Pax from Radio Free Scotland and West Lothian band Fiery Jack and The Black Triangles.

Proceeds from the event will go towards another march for independence next year, with 10% being donated to the Society of William Wallace which helps to maintain and ensure the survival of Scottish historical sites and monuments as well as researching and educating on the legacy of Wallace.

To show the philanthropic side of the Scottish People, collections will be taken up for the M.S. Society of Scotland and McMillan Cancer.  Both illnesses are a major issue in Scotland with M.S cases at the highest rate in Europe per head of population.

The Party for Independence takes place in Espionage, Victoria Street, from 7pm to 11pm, with the ticket price including entry to the club until 3am.
