Glasgow Mela is Scotland's biggest muticultural festival. It is free to enter, open to all ages, and offers a rich, diverse programme of colourful performances representing cultures from across the world.
This year Glasgow Mela will take place in Kelvingrove Park on Saturday 7 and Sunday 8 June. Headline acts confirmed so far include the Red Hot Chilli Pipers, the popular drumming band Dhol Foundation, and big name Bhangra acts Sukshinder Shinda and Jaz Dhami.
In addition to live music and dance, visitors can enjoy a range of different attractions including a dedicated family area and, for the first time ever, Bollywood City, featuring a Grosvenor Cinema marquee which will screen Bollywood films all weekend. There will also be face painting, Bollywood-style make-overs and acrobatic displays to add to the colourful atmosphere.
As ever Glasgow Mela brings with it the Mela Bazaar, selling an eclectic mix of gifts, accessories, textiles, scents and more. And a host of caterers are signing up to serve an exciting variety of delicious, high quality foods from around the world throughout the festival.
This year the Mela will also be a central part of the Culture 2014 programme for the Glasgow Commonwealth Games.
