Wilson will perform the Beach Boys album Pet Sounds, which is widely considered one of the most influential albums in music history, Aug. 3.
He is joined on the bill by Texas, KT Tunstall, Ladysmith Black Mambazo, Pixies, Seasick Steve, Nick Lowe, Paul Carrack, and Andy Fairweather Low, The Shires,
Sharleen Spiteri, lead singer of Texas, who will open the festival on Aug. 2, said: “This feels like truly going home, where I spent most of my formative years. It’ll be great to have a stage and a PA, just like the 6-year-old me running up and down the park singing to an imaginary audience would have wished for.”
Summer Nights at the Bandstand’s capacity is limited to 2,200.
“Experiencing any of these gigs in this wonderful venue will be a truly unforgettable experience,” said Glasgow City councilor Frank McAveety, and added that “Summer Nights has established itself as a key part of Glasgow’s musical calendar and continues to enhance the city’s reputation as a Unesco City of Music.”
Festival director Mark Mackie of Regular Music said he was “delighted” to be returning to the Kelvingrove Bandstand for a fourth year with “a stellar selection of world class performers.”
