All you need to know about Summer Nights at the Bandstand 2024

The Summer Nights at the Bandstand gigs will kick off on Tuesday, July 23rd with Gabrielle playing to an already almost sold out audience. Nostalgia is very much the theme of this year’s lineup as acts such as ‘Ocean Colour Scene’, ‘Echo and the Bunnymen’ and ‘Bananarama’ take to the stage. In this its 9th year, the ‘Bandstand’ events are a series of concerts that take place in the gorgeous surrounds of Kelvingrove Park, a short walk from the Embassy Apartments. Tickets are still available for certain dates but it’s down to limited availability for the more popular artists.

If you are making the pilgrimage to Glasgow and to see one of 14 amazing artists here’s a guide as to what to expect from getting there to staying overnight in Glasgow.

Those attending concerts should consider using public transport and note that the venue opens at 18:30hrs with some supporting acts to warm up the crowd. If you are staying at the Embassy Apartments, Glasgow we are only a 23 minute walk away door to door, or if you prefer, you can grab a taxi which only takes about 5 minutes, subject to traffic.

On August 9th and 10th due to popular demand Echo and the Bunnymen play both dates, and the closing night Saturday, August 10th, we see none other than Bananarama perform to the final audience of the series.

There are still tickets available from ticketmaster.co.uk and if you are lucky enough to have the time to stay overnight in Glasgow, make sure to book into the Embassy Apartments Glasgow, and sink into one of our very comfortable beds, and stylish surroundings.

If you are lucky enough to have secured tickets for Summer nights at the Bandstand, and want to stay, please do give us call or do a quick availability search directly on our website for best rates and up to date availability.
