#29 of 177 in Nightlife in Glasgow
Welcome to Kelvingrove Bandstand and Amphitheatre, a much-loved place of live music, entertainment, gatherings and festivals since 1925. Restored to our former glory in 2014, we are the only original bandstand left in Glasgow.

Each summer, we open our doors and host a kaleidoscopic array of events including arts festivals, live music, open days, family fun days plus much more. This year alone, we welcomed Sir Tom Jones, Primal Scream, Van Morrison, Will Young and Billy Ocean onto our stage.

  • I visited the bandstand for the first time on Friday for a wedding. The bandstand is a beautiful venue and I was very impressed with the attentive staff. I can't wait to go and see some live music there in the future!
  • Fabulous venue, well throughout our event with food and drinks. Fast service and quick entry and exit. Great amenities and a good number of security to make you feel safe. Great on a lovely sunny day.
