TRICK - Patrick Topping - Edinburgh



When: Friday 18th August 2023

Where: Royal Highland Centre in Edinburgh

Brought to us by the team behind Terminal V Festival, this is sure to be absolutely mad with some proper serious DJ on the decks from 7 pm all the way to 3 am. Patrick Topping tops the bill of this very special summer show at Edinburgh’s Royal Highland Centre.

Joining him is massively-adored Scottish DJ Hannah Laing, who has a busy year with countless festivals and raves booked in. There’s also hard techno king blk., multi-genre dabbler Paul Woodford, and Trick’s Airwolf Paradise

Only 5,000 tickets are available for this one. That may seem like there are enough to go around, but these are some seriously well-respected names and, of course, Terminal V’s on board. So they’re certain to fly out.
