Oh water night!

This article is from 2008.
Happily the rain didn't spoil this year's List Festival Party - if anything it enhanced the tropical atmosphere.
Burlesque stilt-masters waded through the crowd as Clarkson & Crouch provoked giggles with their slick comedy, topping off a dazzling line-up on the Outside Stage. Riotous Glasgow band Punch and the Apostles wowed the masses, while 'Cheerleader of Chaos' Wild Card Kitty thrilled a captive audience. Guests and performers rounded off the evening bumping and grinding to the Tackno DJs. Much like the Festival itself, this year's List party set new standards for merry-making. Roll on next year!
