Glasgow has officially begun the countdown to two of the city’s largest annual music events due to kick off next week.
Piping Live! Glasgow International Piping Festival and the World Pipe Band Championships return to the city from 8th to 14th August and 12th and 13th August respectively.
Bands and competitors from around the world will converge on Scotland’s largest city to take part, including 100 top pipers and drummers from as far away as Australia who will form the Piping Live! Big Band.
Bands will also be taking part in events across the city, including performances on Buchanan Street and George Square.
