• A creative programme for all ages celebrating food, music, growing and ideas runs across the three-day festival

Two major free outdoor festivals will take place this summer in Glasgow and Inverness as part of Dandelion, an ambitious creative programme taking place across Scotland in 2022. Following the arc of the growing season, Dandelion will inspire people to ‘sow, grow and share’ food, music, knowledge and ideas.

Taking place over three days, from Friday 17th June until Sunday 19th June, the first Dandelion Festival will take root at the heart of Glasgow’s Kelvingrove Park, with the second taking place in Inverness at the Northern Meeting Park, from the 2nd until 4th September.

Across the weekend the park will be transformed with live music, interactive walkabout theatre, science and creative activities for all the family, talks, participatory workshops and food, as part of a unique festival that dares to reimagine our relationship with food and the planet.
