Edinburgh Summer Sessions 2019: Chvrches, Courtneers & more

Edinburgh Summer Sessions Festival 2019 features headliners Florence + the Machine, CHVRCHES, James, Courteeners, Madness, Primal Scream and Johnny Marr.

Making a  much-welcomed return to Scotland, Florence + The Machine will open Edinburgh Summer Sessions in 2019 playing not one but two consecutive shows on 7th and 8th August.


Primal Scream will take to the Edinburgh Summer Sessions Festival stage on 10th August, their first Scottish date since the iconic V+A opening in Dundee last summer.

Synth-pop maestros CHVRCHES will make their debut at Edinburgh Summer Sessions on 11th August, almost five years since their last performance in the capital.

Also on the line-up, one of Britain’s most celebrated and enduring bands, James are set to take the stage at this year’s Edinburgh Summer Sessions Festival on 15th August.

2019 is Madness 40 Anniversary where everything will be XL and by some strange coincidence, it is also 40 years since they played at Glasgow’s Barrowlands. The band celebrate their anniversary by making their debut at Princes Street Gardens in Edinburgh on 18th August.
