Calvin Harris and Ellie Goulding play Glasgow Summer Sessions gig

Calvin Harris

Calvin Harris has been announced as the first headline act for Glasgow's Summer Sessions.

The Scots DJ will take to the stage at Bellahouston Park on 30 August.

Ellie Goulding has been unveiled as main support. John Newman, who sang with Calvin on hit song "Blame", will also appear.

Techno-funk group Disciples and Brighton-born, nu-disco artist Burns completes the bill.

Last year, The Killers, and DJs David Guetta and Steve Angello performed to more 100,000 people at Bellahouston across three dates. Tickets for the 2015 event go on sale on Friday.

Geoff Ellis, CEO of DF Concerts & Events, said: "Following on from his incredibly memorable headline performance at last year's T in the Park, this will be Calvin's first headline at an outdoor show in Scotland - so we are thrilled that it will be at Glasgow Summer Sessions.

"Calvin has previously played two sell-out dates at The Hydro and has toured the world playing his chart-topping tracks, so this will be an incredible gig that shouldn't be missed."
