Summer Nights is back at King Tut’s once again, featuring performances from a variety of fresh and emerging Scottish artists. The seven weeks of summer showcase returns in full for the first time since 2019 making this year’s festival one of the most highly anticipated yet.
Since the outset when the festival was founded in 2011, Summer Nights has been committed to delivering a programme of events highlighting the finest grassroots talent in Scotland. This year is no different with a diverse range of acts including singer-songwriter and TikTok sensation Calum Bowie, laptop rock duo MEMES, psychedelic trio Miracle Glass Company, the mellifluent sounds of synth-pop band Echo Machine, and many more.
In its 31-year history, King Tut’s has served as a platform to some of the world’s very biggest musical acts at the beginning of their careers and has played host to the likes of Arctic Monkeys, Paolo Nutini, Amy MacDonald and many others during their formative years.
The festival will run over 27 nights throughout the summer months of July and August with 109 acts playing in total.
Chris Loomes, Booker of King Tut’s Summer Nights, at DF Concerts & Events said: “Scotland’s music scene is still thriving and we’re really excited to launch this year’s edition of King Tut’s Summer Nights Festival. With over 100 of the most exciting new artists coming out of Scotland set to play across 7 weeks this summer, it is bound to be another amazing run of shows.”
