Kendrick Lamar among the headliners at Glasgow Summer Sessions

Kendrick Lamar, Kings of Leon and Catfish and the Bottlemen have been confirmed as the headline acts for this year’s Glasgow Summer Sessions.

The three international acts will each headline one night of the outdoor musical festival, which is staged annually in Glasgow’s Bellahouston Park and takes place on Wednesday 22th, Saturday 25th and Wednesday 29th August 2018. Previous headliners include Eminem, Paolo Nutini, The Killers and Biffy Clyro.

Geoff Ellis, CEO of DF Concerts, said: “We couldn’t be happier to complete the headliner announcement and special guests for Glasgow Summer Sessions 2018.

“Kings of Leon’s live shows have become legendary in Scotland. They previously joined us for the inaugural Summer Sessions event in 2013, playing to around 35,000 fans and they always bring a phenomenal, high powered show to Scotland and will be joined by special guests The Wombats.”

He continued: “Heading to Glasgow Summer Sessions for their only Scottish date of the summer, Catfish and the Bottlemen really are one of the hottest British guitar bands around at the moment and never disappoint with their energetic live sets. Following an incredible set at TRNSMT last year, fans of Van and co are in for a treat when they see their band at their first headline festival slot in Scotland along with Twin Atlantic, DMA’s, Peace and Neon Waltz.

“We’re absolutely delighted to bring Kendrick Lamar back to Scotland who is truly at the top of his game after an outstanding show at The SSE Hydro and will follow in the footsteps of Eminem, Biffy Clyro and Calvin Harris to headline Glasgow Summer Sessions with American hip-hop and rock icons N.E.R.D and Bugzy Malone.

“Glasgow Summer Sessions is shaping up to be an unmissable part of the lively Scottish music calendar for this year.”
