Indie darlings The 1975 have been confirmed as the third headliner for 2019’s Glasgow Summer Sessions – and they’ll top the bill on the festival’s second weekend on August 25.
The band join the already announced Foo Fighters and The Cure in what is shaping up to be great festival.
The Matt Healy-fronted band will be joined at Bellahouston Park by Twin Atlantic, You Me At Six, Pale Waves, Ten Tonnes, and No Rome.
Tickets for the new date will go on sale at 9am on Friday (November 30) and will cost £59.50 plus booking fee, or £95 plus booking fee for VIP tickets.
As previously confirmed, Foo Fighters and The Cure will headline the previous weekend of the Glaswegian festival, with Mogwai, The Twilight Sad, and The Joy Formidable also booked to perform.
Cementing their position as one of Britain’s biggest bands, The 1975 have released consecutive era-defining, chart-topping records since 2013 and show no signs of slowing down.
The 1975 are due to release their highly anticipated third album A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships at the end of the month as well as announcing a fourth album due in 2019, Notes On A Conditional Form.
Geoff Ellis, CEO of DF Concerts said: “We’re thrilled to announce The 1975 as the third headliner for next year’s Glasgow Summer Sessions, and with Twin Atlantic, You Me At Six, Pale Waves, Ten Tonnes and No Rome all on the bill, fans are in for a treat.
“From post-punk icons, The Cure, to the return of rock legends, Foo Fighters and one of the biggest bands of the new generation, The 1975 – this will be a festival to remember.”
