Glasgow’s favourite and biggest cultural event, the West End Festival, has announced a closing event to take place this weekend on Sunday, 29 June at Kelvingrove bandstand, sponsored by CC Music and supported by Glasgow Life.

This free event will represent the community of local musicians that WEF has previously used over the years at the free stages in Kelvingrove Park on Parade Day. It will also see the bandstand being used once again during #WEF2014 for a line-up of varied bands, including former MSP Pauline McNeill and rugby legend John Beattie, both with their own bands. Michelle McManus will also perform with her band, Honest Sam and the Dealers.
