Summer Nights at the Bandstand will not go ahead this summer because of the coronavirus pandemic.

The festival, which was scheduled to be held at Kelvingrove Bandstand in Glasgow from July 30 to August 15, has been postponed until 2021.

Almost all of the line-up for the series of events have committed to playing next year, organisers have said.

Among those who had been booked for the festival were Van Morrison, KT Tunstall and Primal Scream.


Mark Mackie, director of Regular Music, said: “Ever since it became apparent that we would not be able to stage our annual Summer Nights concert series at Kelvingrove Bandstand, we have been working away to reschedule the concerts.

“Amazingly, all of the artists want to come next year and most have already been able to confirm their shows, with only one working on their schedules to be with us.

“The new shows will be on their equivalent dates next summer.”

Tickets for this year’s shows are valid for the rescheduled event.


Other festivals which won’t be going ahead this summer because of coronavirus include Belladrum Tartan Heart Festival and TRNSMT.
