The Piping Live! festival is a week long celebration of piping held in Glasgow in the week prior to the World Pipe Band Championships. It is estimated that the festival alone adds £12 million to Scotland's tourism revenue and it is the largest bagpipe festival in the world, showcasing the best talent from a range of traditions.

The LBPS has been involved with the festival in one way or another since it began in 2003. We have hosted Club Nights in the Piping Centre under the direction of Hamish Moore, our members have played in the tent, in the street, on platforms and in fields. We have also held concerts as part of the official programme. In 2017, the current Convenor, Donald Lindsay was inspired to hold a ‘chill-out’ barbecue with pipes day on the Sunday after the Worlds and this has been successfully held again in 2018.

Details of this annual festival will be posted in the News section of the site and across social media.
