It is only a matter of days before one of the biggest bands in the UK, The 1975, descend on Bellahouston Park to bring Glasgow Summer Sessions 2019 to an almighty close. After an incredible sold-out opening weekend which saw unforgettable headline sets from two of the most legendary acts on the planet, The Cure and Foo Fighters, Scotland’s music fans are counting down to Sunday 25th August for another incredible day of live music from The 1975, Twin Atlantic, You Me At Six, Pale Waves and more.
Featuring one of the most exciting line-ups of the summer, here’s everything you need to know about the final day of Summer Sessions 2019.
MULTI-AWARD WINNING BAND OF THE MOMENT THE 1975!
After a whirlwind year that has taken them all over the globe, The 1975 return to Glasgow this weekend to headline Summer Sessions for the very first time. Following the release of their critically acclaimed, genre-hopping third album ‘A Brief Inquiry into Online Relationships’ at the end of last year, the four-piece have enjoyed their biggest year to date – winning two BRIT Awards for Best British Group and Best British Album and headlining arenas and festivals all over the world.
With one of the most spectacular live shows around, they are known to match their massive pop hits and clever lyrics with incredible visuals. And with the band’s new single ‘People’ being debuted on Annie Mac’s BBC Radio 1 show on Thursday night and their upcoming album ‘Notes On A Conditional Form’ expected imminently, anticipation will be at an all-time-high for this weekend’s set.
For a band who have seized the hearts and minds of a new generation of music fans, their Summer Sessions show is not to be missed.

HOMEGROWN HEROES TWIN ATLANTIC!
After an outstanding display at last year’s Summer Sessions, Glasgow’s very own Twin Atlantic return to Bellahouston Park as bona fide arena-rockers after joining Catfish & the Bottlemen on tour earlier this year. Having developed their craft in some of Glasgow’s most intimate venues over the years, their transformation into Main Stage heavyweights has been unstoppable and with a whole album inspired by Glasgow called ‘GLA’, they are sure to go down a storm with the home crowd.
Expect a set full of massive rock anthems and impassioned singalongs and possibly even new music, as teased by frontman Sam McTrusty.
From pop-punk upstarts to the alt-rock heavyweights they are today, You Me At Six remain a formidable force in the UK music scene, six albums into their career. In the midst of a very busy festival season, the Surrey outfit return to Glasgow for one of their biggest shows in the city to date, well known to incite a rapturous response from their Scottish fans. A band that evolve with every record, they unveiled their hugely popular sixth album ‘VI’ last year which saw them experiment with unchartered new territory but we can still expect some massive rock anthems and nostalgic singalongs from their set.
Releasing a brand new single only last week, it will be an unmissable debut from the rockers.

Fellow Dirty Hit signees Pale Waves have spent most of 2019 supporting The 1975 on some of the biggest stages around the world. After releasing their debut album ‘My Mind Makes Noises’ last year, the shows keep getting bigger and bigger for the quartet, who have cultivated an incredibly loyal fanbase entirely of their own. Taking influence from goth-poppers and fellow Summer Sessions acts The Cure and The 1975, the band have a number of shimmering, hugely infectious indie-pop tunes to their name already and are sure to incite mass singalongs with songs ‘There’s a Honey’, ‘Television Romance’ and ‘Eighteen’.
Tipped by many as headliners of the future, Glasgow Summer Sessions is the chance to catch them now before they get even bigger.
Pale Waves frontwoman Heather even teased a possible collaboration with Matty Healy in her Instagram comments. Check it out here.
Next on the bill is emerging star Ten Tonnes, the younger brother of BRIT award winner George Ezra. Ethan Barnett unveiled his self-titled debut album earlier this year to widespread critical acclaim and has already supported the likes of Stereophonics and George Ezra. Bursting with infectious hooks, chant worthy choruses and buoyant lyrics, Ten Tonnes will bring the sound of summer to Bellahouston Park, with Summer Sessions marking another impressive milestone in his career.
Summer Sessions caught up with Ten Tonnes earlier this year for an acoustic version of his track ‘Lucy’ here.
Previously described by The 1975 frontman as their ‘muse’, No Rome is the Manila-born popstar-in-waiting. Signed to The 1975’s label Dirty Hit, No Romeis perhaps best known for collaborating with his label mates on ‘Narcissist’ and has been known to join them onstage to perform the dreamy introspective alt-pop track. The singer has since unveiled his critically acclaimed EP ‘Crying in the Prettiest Places’ which has cemented his reputation as one of the world’s brightest emerging musical acts.
Check out No Rome and The 1975’s ‘Narcissist’ here.
Glasgow Summer Sessions opened with headliners The Cure and Foo Fighters last week, bringing some of the best music in the world to a sold out Bellahouston Park with performances from the likes of Mogwai, Slaves, The Twilight Sad and Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes set to go down in the festival’s history.
