Glasgow Mela

About Glasgow Mela

It's the biggest free multi-cultural festival in Scotland, and this June the hugely popular Glasgow Mela opens one of the biggest summers the city has seen!
With three stages of live world music and brightly costumed dance acts, plus pop-up performances throughout the park, this unmissable day out truly has something for everyone. Handily situated in Glasgow's leafy West End, Glasgow Mela offers all the atmosphere of an outdoor festival without the hefty ticket price!

There's plenty for families to enjoy too, with a crafty Kids Zone and a Sports Come and Try area, while a variety of top-notch caterers across the park will sell a range of mouth-watering world cuisines, including veggie and vegan options.

Drop in from 12 noon to discover the festival for yourself...

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Glasgow Mela are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
