Spectacular line-up confirmed for BBC 6 Music Festival across Glasgow

6MF-Lauren-pic-1

It was already shaping up to be a blockbuster year for music in Glasgow. The Hydro is booked out as part of a revitalised SEC complex, there’s a new city festival for Glasgow Green, live gigs at Hampden and a summer of events at Kelvingrove bandstand.

BBC Radio 6 Music made a dramatic entrance to the fray this morning with the announcement that the BBC 6 Music Festival will take place across city venues next month.

The line-up of events is extraordinary. It’s a celebration of the city of Glasgow’s place in music as much as it is a showcase for bright young things and lyrical elder statesmen.

Some of the most exciting acts around will descend on venues like the Barrowland Ballroom, St Luke’s, the O2 Academy, Tramway and SWG3.

Check out the full line-up of musical talent heading our way.
