Glasgow’s Summer Nights at the Bandstand have announced their 2019 line-up – with the likes of The National, Patti Smith, Father John Misty, Suede, and Bloc Party set to perform. Check out the full line-up below.
Taking place across July and August, the Kelvingrove Bandstand event will welcome an eclectic mix of artists to the Scottish city. Although a different act will take the stage each evening, Ohio band The National will play two consecutive nights on August 6/7.
Elsewhere, Patti Smith will play a show on August 1, before ‘God’s Favorite Customer‘ artist Father John Misty performs the following evening. Bloc Party – who have recently announced more ‘Silent Alarm’ shows for 2019 – look likely to showcase their classic indie LP during their gig on August 9.
Taking things back to the ’80s, Sheffield synth group The Human League will perform on August 3 – providing a change of pace in between Father John Misty and The National’s shows.
Tickets go on general sale this Friday (January 25).
