Piping Live! Is an annual week-long celebration of bagpipes from across the world, embracing Scotland’s heritage and that of piping cultures from around the globe. Based in Glasgow city centre, it is now celebrating its 20th edition, having been delivered in-person and online continuously since August 2004.
The festival coincides with the World Pipe Band Championships, held annually on Glasgow Green and run by the Royal Scottish Pipe Band Association and Glasgow Life.
It is no secret that the past few years have been difficult for the events industry, and Piping Live! has been so grateful for all your support - this year, these challenges have been compounded by a reduction in funding available from our key funder.
