Promoter and Producer of Slessor Gardens Concerts is working in conjunction with DF Concerts & Events to deliver the production for the opening 3D festival.

Liz Hobbs Group, producer and promoter of highly successful concerts in Slessor Gardens, Dundee is proud to be working with DF Concerts & Events to produce a two-day festival celebrating design, music and performance which will mark the opening of V&A Dundee and its place at the heart of Dundee’s transformed waterfront.

The festival will take place in Slessor Gardens at the centre of the Dundee waterfront, with the new museum designed by Japanese architect Kengo Kuma forming an impressive backdrop. It is supported by EventScotland, part of the VisitScotland Events Directorate, and by Scotland’s Year of Young People 2018 event fund.

The festival will open on Friday 14 September, the eve of the museum’s official opening, with a one-off outdoor performance involving music, design and dance. It will continue on Saturday 15 September with family activities, hands-on design workshops, music and creative collaborations on the main stage.

Up to 20,000 people from Dundee, Scotland and around the world are expected to attend the 3D Festival, a key event in Scotland’s Year of Young People 2018.

Following from last weekend’s sell out Simple Minds, Pretenders and KT Tunstall concert, Liz Hobbs Group have been working with the team at DF concerts to deliver the production for the weekend’s events.

Liz Doogan-Hobbs MBE, CEO of LHG Live said, “We’re delighted to be part of such an historic event in the continued growth and development of the Waterfront in Dundee. Having produced and promoted concerts with Little Mix, Olly Murs, UB40, Rita Ora, Steps & Blue and last weekend’s sell out Simple Minds, Pretenders at KT Tunstall concert, to be part of the opening of this iconic building is an honour and a pleasure. We have developed an excellent long term working relationship with Dundee City Council, and already have a number of artists confirmed to play Slessor Gardens in 2019.
