Fiesta Organiser Ricky Scoular said, "The West End Festival Fiesta is designed to be much more than just a series of gigs. We wanted to create something really special to round off the West End Festival and to bring the Kelvingrove Bandstand to life in spectacular style."
He added, "Who doesn't love Billy Ocean, De La Soul or Sister Sledge. They are true legends and we can't wait to see them on stage here in Glasgow, supported by some of Scotland's finest local talent."
Billy Ocean, currently in the midst of UK tour, said, "I love Scotland and can't wait to play the Kelvingrove Bandstand as part of the Fiesta weekend. I have been lucky enough to play a lot of cool venues, but this place looks pretty special. It's going to be a great party, that's for sure."
The West End Festival is Glasgow's largest multi-cultural event and will run from Friday 3rd June, concluding with the West End Festival Fiesta on June 24th, 25th and 26th.
