two days of music,
one spectacular event
Music at the Multiverse is a late summer celebration of music taking place at Crawick Multiverse.
At the heart of the Multiverse is the Sun Amphitheatre, created by site designer Charles Jencks as a spectacular outdoor performance space; a perfect place to enjoy live music again.
We are proud to be able to showcase such an excellent line-up of performers, such as The Dangleberries, Lucky Doves, Emily Smith & Jamie McClennan and Claudia Wood, each of whom have strong local connections. We hope that Music at the Multiverse will be just the start of an exciting programme of outdoor events and experiences at the Multiverse.
