Teenage Fanclub, David Guetta and Killers headline Glasgow's outdoor summer music schedule

Teenage Fanclub

Belle and Sebastian, Squeeze, Steve Earle, Capercaillie, Alison Moyet and The Waterboys also lined up

Glasgow won’t stop being the place to lounge about in the sunshine listening to music when the Commonwealth Games have packed up and left town, it seems. With the West End’s Kelvingrove Bandstand having been renovated as an outdoor live music amphitheatre (Belle and Sebastian play the opening concert on Wed 23 Jul, and two weeks of music, comedy and talks follow), the middle of August will host Magners Summer Nights, a pair of long weekend bills featuring popular MOR artists Squeeze, Steve Earle, Capercaillie, Alison Moyet and The Waterboys. We’re most excited, though, by the return of Teenage Fanclub (Fri 15 Aug) to their home city after much too long away.

This lot finishes just in time for a very different event, the second year of Glasgow Summer Sessions in Bellahouston Park, this year with David Guetta (supported by Steve Angello and Oliver Heldens, Sat 16 Aug) and The Killers (with The Courteeners and Miles Kane, Tue 19 Aug) taking the place of last year’s rent-a-fistpumping-anthem topliners Avicii and Kings of Leon. It worked, and so it’s back. Pray for sun.

Kelvingrove Bandstand, Glasgow, Thu 7–Sat 9 Aug and Thu 14–Sat 16 Aug; Bellahouston Park, Glasgow, Sat 16 & Tue 19 Aug.
