A low budget music festival in Glasgow has been hailed as major success during the cost-of-living crisis.

Govan Music Festival flogged tickets for a maxium for £5 each to help make it accessible for everyone.

Over 300 artists and guests performed during the eclectic programme for the third annual event.

It took place between Wednesday, March 13 and Saturday, March 16 across Glasgow’s historic district, from the Fairfield Club to Edmiston House.

With a bill spanning folk, fusion, world, classical, jazz and hip-hop music, the festival welcomed music fans of all kinds to sample the raw talent and creative ambition on display in this bold, emerging Glasgow community.

Many of groups also ran workshops and one-off showcases to celebrate the event's inclusive spirit which reached many people from different backgrounds.

The festival was run by Govan’s regeneration orchestra, The Glasgow Barons, and was supported by The National Lottery through Creative Scotland.

It aimed to boost the area’s regeneration and put Govan on the cultural map within Scotland.

Highlights included the launch party for Freed Up CIC, an independent producer of sober adult events specially curated for the recovery community.

This brought Scottish hip hop and techno together with live strings to create something truly memorable, while the award-winning Musicians in Exile and Glasgow indie trad band DLÙ put on a special double bill concert that brought world and Gaelic music together in the spirit of musical and climate change exploration.

Paul MacAlindin, Artistic Director of The Glasgow Barons and Govan Music Festival, said: “Govan Music Festival aims to have a profound and lasting positive social and cultural impact on the people of Govan and what we’ve seen over the last four days has shown how music can bring people together, build new connections and lift spirits.

“I would like to thank everyone who made our third edition of the festival possible - our musicians, participants, local partners, the fantastic venues and of course, the audiences who came out from near and far to see just what Govan can do.

“This is cultural regeneration at its best.”

Head of Music at Creative Scotland, Alan Morrison said: “The roots of Govan Music Festival are deeply embedded in a community whose pride, passion and artistic talent are revitalising the area.

“With support from The National Lottery, streets in the south-west of Glasgow vibrated to hip hop beats and classical strings, as local and international traditions sat side by side in a dynamic programme of music and performance.

“The Glasgow Barons have been a magnificent catalyst for creativity in recent years and this festival is a shining example of what can be achieved when a community comes together.”
