Scotland’s largest event catered to the LGBTI community, Glasgow Pride returns this 14-15 July to the beautiful Kelvingrove Park.
The annual parade sees 5,000 marchers invading the streets with colorful outfits and rainbow flags. Moreover, it’s watched by over 50,000 people as it makes it way through the city center.
Glasgow Pride parade and festival
The Parade starts at Clyde Place at 12pm. It will then make its way through the city up to Kelvingrove Park where the Pride Glasgow Festival will take place.
The festival takes place on 14 and 15 July for a whole weekend of music and entertainment. The park includes different areas: a family area, a safe space for your furry friends and a Pride market to buy everything rainbow. Furthermore, bars, a food village, a VIP area and a youth space for those aged between 13 and 25.
The lineup at Kelvingrove Park
The full lineup of Saturday includes:
- Dance legends Lasgo vs. Ian Van Dahl
- The Sundaes
- Scottish actor and singer Tom Urie
Here are the artists who will take the stage on Sunday:
- Melanie C
- Australian drag performer Courtney Act
- The X Factor’s Grace Davies
- Rhythm of the 90s
The afterparty with Steps
Glasgow Pride’s official afterparty takes place from 7pm at Kelvingrove Park with a full concert from 90s legend Steps.
The British dance-pop group will have the crowd dance to their most iconic tunes.
Entry to the main festival requires tickets. These are available to buy online and on the day at the box office. There aren’t any VIP tickets left, but £15 Weekend Tickets and £45 Weekend Tickets with Afterparty are still available on Glasgow Pride’s website. Book your tickets here.
Glasgow’s subway is to extend its weekend opening times to offer a better service to those going to the festival. The last train leaving Kelvinbridge, in fact, will head into the city center at 11:20pm.
