The Govanhill Street Music Festival is back on Sunday 15th August! Join us to celebrate the rich and diverse musical contributions from the artists of Govanhill. This unique event showcases the talent and skill of top musicians and artists – they take centre stage and fill the streets with music, bringing our community together.
Listen to traditional Bulgarian folk music from power house voice Vanya Semerdjieva of Loznitsa, the soulful tunes of French-Cameroonian singer-songwriter Djana Gabrielle and contemporary Classical guitar from Calum Borthwick and Celtic soul rebel music from An Tine Chnámh. Join the stage co-hosted by Romanolav and Ando Glaso featuring some of the best Roma musicians the area has to offer, and socially dis-dance against racism at the Love Music Hate Racism stage.
The street music festival is a powerful celebration of the talented artistic community of Govanhill and is a reminder of how music and culture can break down divisions and bring us together. We need to be united to tackle racism. This is what our music festival seeks to display – that the diversity in our community is our strength.
