Cementing their position as one of Britain’s biggest and most exciting bands, The 1975 have released consecutive era-defining, chart-topping records since 2013 and show no signs of slowing down. With a range of musical influences coming together to form their hybrid sound, The 1975 bring unparalleled lyrics and innovative pop to the table while curating live shows which truly reflect the band’s exceptionally unique style. With Matty Healy as their enigmatic frontman, the four-piece 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. Selling out headline shows around the world, The 1975 will bring their incredible live show to Glasgow’s Bellahouston Park for Glasgow Summer Sessions 2019.
The 1975 addition to Glasgow Summer Sessions sees the band join fellow headliners The Cure as they make their return to Scotland after 27 years on 16th August 2019 and Foo Fighters top the bill on Friday 17th August. With three of the biggest bands in the world confirmed for the festival, Glasgow Summer Sessions looks set to be one of the biggest events in the UK’s music calendar next year.
Glasgow Summer Sessions is part of the Summer Sessions series which this year added the brand-new Edinburgh Summer Sessions festival which saw incredible artists including Sir Tom Jones and Paloma Faith perform against the iconic backdrop of Edinburgh Castle. Glasgow’s offering this summer saw DF Concerts bring headliners Kings of Leon, Catfish and the Bottlemen and Kendrick Lamar plus thousands of fans together for one final huge festival gathering of the summer.
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.”
