The event will be held across the weekends of 7-10 and 14-16 August. It will be the first event to be held at the recently refurbished 2,500-capacity bandstand in the Scottish park. The 90-year-old venue was closed in 1999 after it fell into disrepair.

The cider company will be creating a Magners village at the venue, featuring a cider garden and premium street food area.

Alison Moyet, Squeeze, The Waterboys, Capercaillie, Teenage Fanclub and Steve Earl have all been confirmed on the line-up for the evening festival.

Paul Condron, marketing director for Magners, 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."
