Summer Nights Festival 2020

Glasgow’s beautiful Kelvingrove park is in our backyard making The Kelvingrove Hotel the best place to stay if you are attending (or planning to attend) this year’s Summer Nights Festival at The park’s fantastic Bandstand which is less than a 5 minute walk from our doorstep!

The Summer Nights At The Bandstand festival will run from July 30 until August 15 with a star-studded line-up set to perform at the iconic west end venue. The Kelvingrove Park Bandstand and Amphitheatre is the only original bandstand left in the city and will once again take centre stage in Glasgow for two weeks during the summer.

Summer Nights is returning to the 2,500 capacity Kelvingrove Bandstand for two weeks again this year! Located in Glasgow’s Kelvingrove Park in the heart of the city’s West End, the bandstand sits between some of the city’s most stunning buildings – Glasgow University and Kelvingrove Art Gallery

Now in its seventh year, Summer Nights will play host to big names including Primal Scream, KT Tunstall, Belinda Carlisle, Rick Astley, The Jesus and Mary Chain, Van Morrison, Edwyn Collins and Altered Images

The Riverside Museum of Transport and travel is just a short distance from here at the Kelvingrove Hotel. A nice walk down towards the Clyde, adjacent to the beautiful Kelvingrove Park will take you straight to the Museum which is hosting its annual festival this May!
