NEED TO KNOW 2022
Glasgow’s tourism sector unites in rebuilding top cultural events and experiences for visitors across the world
Having played host to an average of 130 gigs per week in its pre-Covid-19 days, Glasgow is nationally regarded as the heart of Scotland’s music scene. In an attempt to restore the UNESCO City Of Music’s gig culture, Glasgow Life has launched Glasgow: Music Nonstop – a campaign to place the city’s musical output centre stage. Glasgow: Music Nonstop will run in the form of digital and social media content hosted on http://peoplemakeglasgow.com, and has sought the support of local businesses and national organisations alike. Among the list are Glasgow Music City Music Tours, City Sightseeing Glasgow’s newly launched music bus tour (guided by the dulcet tones of singer-songwriter Eddi Reader), and Mharsanta’s popular Trad Trail Experience.

SWG3 is a trendy and sustainable multi-disciplinary art space in the Finnieston area of Glasgow. It is one of Scotland’s most distinctive independent venues – formerly a galvanisers yard and clutch of warehouses servicing the Clyde, it’s now a collection of atmospheric spaces alive with art, design, music, fashion, food, shopping and nightlife.
A ticket to a concert at Kelvingrove Bandstand is a perfect gift when in Glasgow. It is a delightful outdoor music venue in the heart of the city’s Kelvingrove Park: https://peoplemakeglasgow.com/whats-on/summer-nights.
