Discover the story of Scottish pop music at the National Museum of Scotland as we take you on a musical journey from the 1950s to the present day.

This summer, join us for the first major exhibition dedicated to Scottish pop music, exploring the musical culture of the nation over more than half a century, from influential indie pioneers to global superstars.

From the days of the dancehalls to the emergence of pop in an explosion of colour in the 60s, through the 70s and New Wave, Rip It Up will feature global stars and independent local heroes from pop's early days right up to today’s outstanding newcomers.

The exhibition features work by photographer Harry Papadopoulos, which was originally shown at Street Level Photoworks in 2014. More Information: Street Level Photoworks
