Just when you thought the prospect of seeing Green Day at Bellahouston Park can’t be any more appealing... they’ve only gone and added The Skids to the support bill alongside Rancid and Slaves. The Scottish punk legends have been specially invited by Green Day to join them for what’s sure to be the ultimate party in the park.
There are a lot of things we associate with a stay at Hotel Es Vive, but wellness generally isn’t one of them. In fact the hotel, home to the sort of grown-up hedonism we return to Ibiza for at least twice a year, normally leaves me heading back to Scotland looking like I need a holiday. That’s because of the legendary Experience Bar, a soundproofed late-night haunt on the ground floor which attracts the biggest names in dance music. But this year, it’s all change.
Teenage superstar Shawn Mendes has been flying the flag for Glasgow clothing brand Forty. The 18-year-old chose the city to kick off his world tour on Thursday night and spent a few days in rehearsals here before the SSE Hydro show. He Instagrammed a backstage video to fans the night before showing him backstage in a Forty tee - and it’s not the first time.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
