Playground Festival is a boutique wonderland event for music lovers of all genres, nestled in Rouken Glen Park, a hidden escape near the heart of Glasgow.

Three stages are set to showcase a stellar line-up topped by The Libertines, James, Boy George & Culture Club and Nile Rodgers & CHIC. A slew of amazing talent, including Orbital, Hot Chip, Morcheeba, Leftfield, Glasvegas and many more, rounds out the carefully curated line-up.

In addition to a wide range of music across several stages, Playground Festival strives to offer other delights from heritage acts with timeless classics to emerging DJs with eye-popping light shows. Plus there are amazing acrobatic air displays and plenty of opportunities to educate the little ones on the music that has shaped the artists of today.
