Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds to headline Dundee Summer Sessions

Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds are to headline the first ever Dundee Summer Sessions.

The band will perform at Slessor Gardens next year on Saturday, June 11.

Dundee is the latest city to host one of DF Concerts’ Summer Sessions music festivals, joining Edinburgh and Glasgow.

Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds will be supported by Inhaler, with further acts still to be announced.

Geoff Ellis, DF Concerts’ chief executive, said: “Dundee is the spiritual home of DF, having started here many moons ago, so we are delighted to return with Summer Sessions and bring some incredible music to the city.

“We are excited and extremely proud to announce Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds as the first ever headliner for Dundee Summer Sessions and we could not wish for a more iconic artist to launch the festival.

“Dundee is a city full of energy, creativity and ambition and so provides a perfect home for Summer Sessions and the quality of artists that will come to play the festival.”

Tickets will be available pre-sale for those who register online from Wednesday, before going on general sale on Friday.

Mark Flynn, convener of Dundee City Council’s city development committee, said: “The success of the concerts that have been staged at Slessor Gardens so far, and its place as a fantastic venue to see bands of all types, has attracted interest from a wide variety of promoters.

“I am delighted to see the diary slots available for next summer filling up fast with top-class acts like Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, that are bound to fire the public’s imagination and get them turning out in their thousands.”
