south-side-festival18th & 19th May 2013

Location:  Queens Park Recreation Grounds, Glasgow’s Southside.

Admission:  Mostly free with the exception of a few evening events.

After it’s hugely successful debut in 2008, the Southside Festival will return for it’s 6th year running on Saturday the 18th May 2013 for a weekend of music and dance.

In 2008 Queens Park hosted the first ever Southside Festival, which attracted over 8,000 people on the day of the main festival.  By last year the festival attracted over 15,000 visitors on what had to be one of the best days of the year.

Arranged by the community for the community, the Southside Festival is a celebration of everything which is great about the Southside of Glasgow.  The Festival aims to celebrate the cultural diversity and community spirit of this unique area of the city.

This year the Festival takes place on the weekend of the 18th May.  The festival will kick off at 11 am with a parade through the streets of the southside, winding its way to the park where the festival will be opened by a special guest and the festivities will begin.

A huge variety of acts will be performing on the different stages of the Southside Festival.  There will also be a large number of workshops, including circus workshops, drumming workshops and a number of different dance workshops.  On the boating pond the planned activities include sailing, kayaking and a model ship club, whilst on dry land you can take part in archery, rugby, mountain biking, lawn bowling and health walks.
