About Piping Live! Online Festival

Piping Live! 2020 is the 17th edition of the Glasgow International Piping Festival. In April this year, the heart-breaking decision was taken to cancel our festival due to the global pandemic. However as the world has slowly started to reopen, we knew we had to bring some of the usual flavour of the festival to you, our fantastic audience.

We hope that these concerts and talks will bring a taste of what you can usually expect from Piping Live! all from the comfort and safety of your own home.

So get the BBQ on (it never mattered it was raining at Piping Live!), pull on your Piping Live! tshirt and tune in to our livestream for a great week of piping!
