Paisley Music Week
Thank you for your interest in becoming part of Paisley Live. The event will bring local music and arts organisations together with around 100 acts in over 35 venues creating a week-long festival in Paisley. The vision is to restore Paisley’s reputation as a live music town and help rebuild the town centre as a visitor destination.
We plan to make Paisley Live appeal to a wide audience to include more artists and attract bigger crowds than ever before. From Opera to Punk Rock anything goes.
As you are well aware Paisley town centre has been in decline for over two decades. This is an opportunity to do something about it and have some fun. The whole community will be involved looking to re energise the town both from a community spirit perspective and an economic one.
Paisley Live will bring many community groups together and will have direct and indirect impacts on the town through the opportunities it will provide in terms of; participation, skills development and volunteering. It will also have environmental and political impacts.
The benefit of the festival to the town can be extensive, particularly when the draw is from outside of the region. Local vendors, artisans, crafts people, restaurants, hotels and Bars will be busier than normal and may indeed make a large portion of their months’ income during the course of a week. High Street revitalization can also be a positive economic spin-off from the weeklong festival and special events.
This would be the template for an annual celebration of local music and a chance to invite performers from further afield and give them a positive feeling about our town.
