Day Fever started in Sheffield before quickly growing to include events in Jonny's hometown of Merthyr Tydfil, London, Manchester and Vicky's native Nottingham, the next stop is Glasgow.

They say: "The astonishing appetite for a nightclub in the afternoon saw us completely sell out across the UK and we have been inundated with people asking for us to bring Day Fever to their city. Well, we have listened and so we head north to one of our favourite places and to the brilliant BAaD.

"With perfect party music, personally curated by Jon McClure of Reverend and the Makers and Vicky McClure, Jonny Owen and the gang all behind the new dates we guarantee it’ll be another afternoon of no holds barred party times!"

Trigger Point and Line of Duty star Vicky McClure told GlasgowWorld: "We all said that we’d love to take this idea to Scotland, after all we’ve a few Mc’s in our gang so it’s like going home! Glasgow crowds are legendary in their love of music and it was great that a venue in the city was so keen to put on our day. So get your gladrags on and come and join us for a party. We can’t wait to see you in April."

With an eclectic mix of sing-along anthems from their collective record collections, Vicky, Jonny and Jon will be behind the decks from 3-8pm at BAaD in The Barras Market on Saturday 13 April.
