The top 10 up and coming bands in and around Glasgow - featuring Tina Sandwich, Baby Strange, and more

From Baby Strange to The Vanities; Any one of these bands could be the next big thing!

Glasgow has produced some of the greatest bands the UK - and the wider world - has seen, so we thought it would be a good idea to put together this list of artists performing in the city who could be the next great Glasgow band.

After lockdown ended, Glasgow was aflush with a tidal wave of brand new bands, and with all that time to practice during the pandemic - the calibre of the music scene in Glasgow has improved drastically.

Our city is undeniably a musical one, producing some majorly successful and famous artists like AC/DC, Franz Ferdinand, Primal Scream, Simple Minds, and the Bay City Rollers. If that line-up isn’t telling enough, regardless of the genre, Glasgow does music best.

Any one of these artists have the talent, stage presence, and the formidable cool factor that it takes to be the next big thing.
