As summer comes to a close and we begin to say our goodbyes to the good weather (not that there’s much of it), the people of Glasgow welcome the highly anticipated Summer Sessions with open arms!
The annual festival takes place at Bellahouston Park in Glasgow every August and continuously brings outstanding artists to the stage, with the likes of Eminem, Calvin Harris and The Killers rocking the stage in previous years the expectations for this year’s line-up are high and rest assured, Bellahouston’s upcoming concerts will not disappoint!
Headlining the first night of the two-day music extravaganza is Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, the band will play their biggest headlining show in Scotland to a massive crowd on the 26th of August.
Fans can expect to hear the tracks from the band’s latest award-winning album Chasing Yesterday and other hits like ‘What a Life’ and ‘In the Heat of the Moment’ as well as iconic songs from Noel’s Oasis years that are sure to be crowd pleasers.
Noel and his High Flying Birds are no strangers to a large Scottish crowd after bringing this year’s T in the Park to a close and if that performance was anything to go by, Glasgow Summer Sessions is set for a ground-breaking kick off!
Closing the Summer Sessions will be our home-grown rockers Biffy Clyro on the 27th, rallying their loyal fans to a Glasgow stage for the first time since their three night sell out performance at the Barrowlands in 2014.
With the debut of their new album Ellipsis last month we can be sure to hear new material as well as favourites such as ‘Many of Horror’ and ‘That Golden Rule’, delivered with the ferocious energy seen in what can only be described as a trailblazing production from their performance at 2014’s T in the Park. The Biffy boys have promised to give us all ‘a night we’ll never forget!!’ that’s sure to have the whole crowd chanting their war cry ‘Mon The Biff!’ all night long!
Of course both bands can’t be expected to take the stage without the crowd being warmed up for them and yet again the organisers at Summer Sessions have not disappointed! Special guests such as The Verve’s former frontman Richard Ashcroft and indie-rockers Circa Waves will be riling up the crowd for Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds on the Friday with further additions to the line-up to be announced in the next few weeks.
In keeping with the high calibre of support acts from the night before, the Saturday event will see the Biffy Boys follow an adrenaline filled performance from their iconic American brothers Fall Out Boy with electric-grunge rockers Wolf Alice and Cage the Elephant entertaining the crowd throughout the day.
It’s safe to say, anyone attending this year’s Summer Sessions at Bellahouston will have a day and night filled with iconic songs, legendary artists and a great Scottish atmosphere to embrace! With a line up like this, you do not want to miss out either!
