Connect Festival presents iconic rock band Rage Against the Machine who will play their first Scottish headline show in 14 years on the site of Connect Festival at Edinburgh’s Royal Highland Centre Showgrounds on Wednesday 24th August 2022. Rage Against the Machine will be joined by Run The Jewels, Nova Twins, and The Last Internationale

Since forming in the early 90’s, alternative rock band Rage Against the Machine has educated masses of heavy music fans by injecting their cocktail of rap, hardcore punk, funk, and metal with a sobering dose of fiercely polemical, politically charged urgency throughout the years. Now, the band make their long-awaited return to Scotland to play at Edinburgh’s Royal Highland Centre Showgrounds this August.

Crashing the mainstream in 1992 with ‘Killing in the Name’ - their sonic protest against police brutality and systemic racism - the band planted their flag in the scene with their triple-platinum self-titled debut album which courted controversy with its graphic cover of a protesting, self-immolated Buddhist monk.

Supporting Rage Against The Machine will be Run The Jewels, Nova Twins, and The Last Internationale.

What started as a one-off project and quickly evolved into a Grammy-nominated hip-hop super duo, Run The Jewels. Atop hard-hitting beats and ominous production, the rapper and emcee pair trade wryly comical rhymes, touching upon social issues, life and death, and a heavy dose of chest-thumping bragging.

Nova Twins imagined their band because they didn’t have anyone like themselves to look up to. The London-based duo are the zeitgeist-capturing polymath pioneers of a generation who clash the ideas from the worlds of punk, rap, pop, and their sound is one that smashes genres to showcase the many facets of the duo. Also joining the line up is The Last Internationale, a band which Rage Against The Machine’s Tom Morello once said “The Last Internationale are one of my favourites in the next wave of rebel rockers. They’re raw and real and mix East Village rock sensibilities with Battleship Potemkin firepower.”
