Fourteen festivals at the heart of Scotland’s creative and culture sector have received a share of £1.7million from The Scottish Government’s Festivals Expo Fund. 

Established in 2007 by the Scottish Government, the Festivals Expo Fund aims to foster innovation across festivals and ensure international opportunities for participating Scottish based artists. 

Four Glasgow events will be supported by the 2024/25 Expo fund, including: Celtic Connections, Glasgow Film Festival, Glasgow International and Sonica.
