Underworld, Kraftwerk and Nile Rodgers and Chic will headline Glasgow’s Playground Festival as it returns next year.
With this year’s festival cancelled due to the Coronavirus pandemic, it will return to Rouken Glen Park in July 2021.
Playground organisers say fans can expect the “most eclectic line-up ever seen” in Scotland across the festival’s three days and nights, with an array of national and international stars.
Nile Rodgers said: “I’m delighted to be returning to Glasgow for Playground 2021 and seeing our amazing fans there again next summer – the city is always a very special place for us to play.”
As well as musical talent, the festival will see an expanding food forest area as well as more activities for children.
Festival spokesperson Ashleigh Elliott said: “We are thrilled to bring Playground 2021 to Rouken Glen Park with what we believe is one of the most exciting line-ups ever seen in Scotland. We are confident it will deliver a truly memorable weekend.
“Where possible we secured the acts who were scheduled to play in summer 2020 but sadly some of them couldn’t make it due to existing commitments.
“Underworld are one of the biggest names in world electronic music and we are thrilled to have them – they are the perfect end to day one and we know our crowd will love them.
“Kraftwerk can be described in the exact same way, their hypnotic synthesiser melodies truly shaped the development of dance music around the world.
“Their 3D show will be unlike anything our city has ever seen – we have some very exciting plans to make it even more special.
“We all need something to smile about this year and I hope the return of our Playground can bring hope and happiness to music fans across Scotland.
“Welcome to our Playground – it’s great to have you all coming back.”
