Scotland’s independent music scene on tour.

In the late 1990s, a collection of musicians from Chemikal Underground Records hired a bus and headed off on a road trip to a town in rural France to play a one-off gig. Now they are headed back to relive the experience.

From Mogwai to Franz Ferdinand, The Delgados to RM Hubbert, Chemikal Underground defines the independent record scene in Scotland from the mid 90s until present day. Lost in France, in exploring a small moment in its history, defines what has made the label and its acts so adored by fans around the world. 

We are also pleased to host a special live gig and screening event at Summerhall as part of Sound + Vision.
