Glasgow Summer Sessions 2019
The legendary, hugely influential band The Cure will return to Scotland for the first time in 27 years next summer. The Cure will play Glasgow Summer Sessions at Bellahouston Park in true ‘Friday I’m in Love’ style on Friday 16th August 2019, their first Scottish show since their legendary 1992 run of shows.
Set to be one of the most anticipated Scottish shows of the year, organisers DF Concerts, are proud to have tempted The Cure to headline a major Scottish festival for the first time. The Cure’s appearance at Glasgow Summer Sessions is part of a very select and special run of headline spots at major festivals all over the world during 2019 to celebrate a career now entering its 5th decade. Throughout this time The Cure have performed around 1,500 concerts, made 13 studio albums and more than 40 singles, and with new releases imminent, 2019’s line-up of frontman Robert Smith along with long-time band members Simon Gallup (Bass), Jason Cooper (Drums), Roger O’Donnell (Keyboard) and Reeves Gabrels (Guitar) are riding high. Following a 27-year absence from the Scottish live scene, the band’s return is definitely one not to be missed!
The etheral wailings of Robert Smith set amongst layer upon layer of dark, melancholic guitars, edgey atmospherics and occasional pop wanderings all make up the unmistakable ingredients of The Cure. Whether they're wandering down Fascination Street or in love on a Friday, The Cure remain unmissable.

Glasgow's critically acclaimed post-rock band, led by Stuart Braithwaite. Loved by the late John Peel, Mogwai put an emphasis on epic big scale music with an orchestral feel. Rich and luscious in its atmosphere and texture, here's a group that really will take you on a trip to somewhere else. Who needs vocals when instrumentals can be this powerful?

The Twilight Sad
Reclusiveness setting in after just two gigs, Glasgow's The Twilight Sad stayed in the dark until 2005, writing and recording extended pieces of music using any variety of instruments and anything else that would make a sound. An intense, intricate and overpowering sound has since made its way south into England with their signing to Fat Cat records. The Twilight Sad comprises James Graham (vocals), Andy MacFarlane, (guitar/accordion/noise) and Mark Devine (drums). Live, they introduce Johnny Doc and Martin Doherty to the line-up.

The Joy Formidable
North Wales indie-grunge three-piece, fronted by the enchanting Ritzy Bryan. Abandoning the traditional record industry route, they came to prominence upon releasing 2009 mini album 'A Balloon Called Moaning' as a free download. Their Breeders and Yeah Yeah Yeahs brand of indie-rock, with their trademark sound of crashing guitars and tight hooks, has seen them gain continual support by BBC 6 Music and a loyal fan base.
