Today, the line-up has been revealed for Glasgow’s hottest new festival, Galvanize Festival at SWG3 this August. The series of outdoor shows at SWG3’s Galvanizers Yard will welcome Tom Walker, The Libertines, Two Door Cinema Club, Supergrass, Example, Pixies and All Time Low plus a host of support acts on each night.
Following a huge rocket to fame which saw him claim Number 1 with his debut album and win the BRITs ‘British Breakthrough Act’ in 2019, Glasgow-born Tom Walker will play Galvanize Festival on 19 August with support from Aaron Smith. Tom has established himself as a major voice in music with his honesty and passion and his acoustic driven single ‘Better Half Of Me’ is as stunning and addictive as his previous hits ‘Leave A Light On’ and ‘Just You & I’. ‘What A Time To Be Alive’ won ‘Best Album’ at the Scottish Music Awards in November 2019 and is certified Platinum in the UK, with well over one million sales and 1 billion streams worldwide.
The Libertines are no strangers to festival bills across the world having been on the bill at the likes of Y Not, Glastonbury, and Benicassim, and on 21st August, Pete Doherty, Carl Barratt and Co. will take to the stage at SWG3 Galvanizers Yard. The indie rock band have been playing together since 1997 and will be sure to bring the hits which include Can’t Stand Me Now, Don’t Look Back Into The Sun, and Time For Heroes.
After a string of massive sold out shows in Scotland following the release of their last album “False Alarm” late last year, Two Door Cinema Club return to Glasgow on the 22nd August. A long-time festival favourite, the band will be performing old and new favourites like such as ‘What You Know’, ‘Undercover Martyn’, ‘Sun’, ‘Bad Decisions’ and ‘Talk’.
Having sold out two nights at Glasgow’s Barrowland, Supergrass have shown that the three-time platinum selling, BRITs and Ivor Novello winning band are still as hot now as they were when they formed in 1995. The band will play Glavanize Festival on 23 August, allowing those fans who missed out on tickets for Barrowlands to catch the band in all their glory, outdoors at SWG3.
After his standout performance at TRNSMT in Summer 2019 and two sold out shows at SWG3 last week, Example is heading back to Glasgow on 26thAugust, for one of the hottest gigs in town. After some time away, Example has proven that he isn’t reinventing himself, he is going back to what he is all about and will be bringing his classics like ‘Kickstarts’, ‘Changed The Way You Kiss Me’ and ‘We’ll Be Coming Back’ plus the new bangers ‘Do It So Well’, and ‘All Night’ – this is one not to miss.
Pixies, will play Galvanize Festival on 27 August with support on the night from The Slow Show. Since forming in 1986, the band have released seven studio albums over three decades with the most recent ‘Beneath the Eyrie’ receiving positive critical acclaim, with some calling it the best album since the band reformed in 2004.
American rockers, All Time Low, will be back in Glasgow on 30th August, closing out the inaugural year of Galvanize Festival. Having headlined Slamdunk Festival last year, and recently announced their new album ‘Wake Up, Sunshine’ which will be release in April 2020, this one a ‘must-see’ for all pop-punk fans. Support on the night will come from Sleeping with Sirens and As It Is.
