Magners Irish Cider is the UK's favourite bottled apple cider brand, synonymous with spontaneous summer fun. Paul Condron, Marketing Director for Magners Irish Cider said: "2014 is an incredible year for Glasgow, a city that rightly enjoys a great reputation for music. We're sure that Magners Summer Nights will add to this reputation and we're delighted to bring such a strong line-up of UK and international artists to the Kelvingrove Bandstand. It's great to see the beautifully refurbished venue being used for such high profile events for the people of Glasgow and beyond. We're already looking forward to these warm summer evenings with a cold Magners in hand, surrounded by good friends and great music."

Capercaillie's Karen Matheson said: "We are delighted to be playing at this wonderful new festival. Kelvingrove is one of my favourite parks and the newly refurbished bandstand looks sensational. We cannot wait to play."

Mark Mackie of Regular Music, promoters of the event said: "Creating and booking this series of shows was very easy. All we had to do was send photographs of the bandstand and its beautiful surroundings and the artists we invited to play said 'yes please'."
