Thousands are set to descend on Glasgow's Bellahouston Park for Summer Sessions.

It comes just days after a stellar lineup lit up Edinburgh's Princes Street Gardens - and now it's Glasgow's time to shine.

When is it?

This year, acts will take to the stage on August 16, 17 and 25 in Bellahouston Park.

Who is headlining this year?

You don't need to look far to find some of the hottest acts of the year. The Cure will kick off the first night of music on the 16th in their first Glasgow gig in almost 30 years.

They will be supported by Mogwai, The Twilight Sad and The Joy Formidable

US global rockers Foo Fighters will take over on Saturday 17, with support from Slaves, Frank Carter and the Rattlesnakes, The Van T's and Hot Milk.

The 1975 will be the last headlining act on the 25th, and take to the stage just days after they are due to appear at Reading Festival.

They'll be fronted by Twin Atlantic, You Me At Six, Pale Waves, Ten Tonnes and No Rome.

How do I get tickets?

Great news - tickets are still available for The Cure and The 1975 - but Foo Fighters fans have unfortunately missed their chance.

Standard and VIP tickets are available for Friday's gig at £59.50 (plus booking fee) and £95 (plus booking fee) respectively.

Tickets for The 1975 are sitting at £45 for general and £70 for VIP.

They are available for purchase HERE

How do you get to Bellahouston Park from Glasgow City Centre?

While it's not within walking distance like TRNSMT's Glasgow Green, Bellahouston Park is easily accessible with public transport.

By bus

Arguably, the easiest way to get to the gig is with Summer Sessions' official partner, Happy Bus.

Traveling from Buchanan Bus Station, it will cost you just £5 for a return ticket. More info HERE.

There is also a McGills bus stop (38) and First stops (10, 9, 9A) just outside the park.

By train

The easiest way to travel by train to the park is from Glasgow Central to Dumbreck. 

These services run at 12 minutes and 42 minutes past the hour, and take just five minutes to reach Dumbreck.

ScotRail have advised they are putting on extra seats to their services to deal with demand, and have issued top tips on how to travel to the festival.

From 10pm on Friday, August 16 and Saturday, August 17, buses will replace trains between Glasgow Central and Paisley Canal, calling at all stations.

This will allow special train services to run between Dumbreck and Glasgow Central only, to get fans home after the music.

By car

Parking will also be available at Albion Car Park, on a first-come, first-served basis charging £5.00 per car for all-day parking. The car park is a short walk from Bellahouston Park.


Bizarre, maybe, but the park is easily reached by using the National Cycle Route number 75, and there are public cycle racks situated around the park.
