Geoff Ellis, DF Concerts chief, said: “We are really excited to announce Kendrick Lamar as the first Glasgow Summer Sessions headliner for 2018.

“Following in the footsteps of Eminem, Biffy Clyro, and Calvin Harris, to name a few acts who have previously played Glasgow Summer Sessions, Kendrick is well and truly at the top of his game after an outstanding show at The SSE Hydro at the weekend and we can’t wait to welcome him back to the city in August.”
