A spontaneous bicycle orchestra for #Festival2018

Main Stage, 'Go Live!' @Glasgow Green

Sun 12th August



(bring your own bike)

The Velophonic Orchestra is a spontaneous bicycle orchestra that anyone can join!

Over the period of an hour, we’ll explore the possibilities of using bicycles as instruments: playing on bells, spokes, frames, saddles - you name it! No previous bicycle-playing experience necessary - just follow the conductors and experience being part of the band as we create and perform a piece of music to celebrate each of the four cycling disciplines of the Glasgow 2018 European Championships.

Outreach workshops

...will be taking place at cycle hubs and events around the city, so you can practice getting your groove on. (You're still welcome to just turn up on the day though!)

Here's the timetable...

Get Involved

We're looking for a team of volunteers to help everyone make music on the day - if you have some experience of percussion, a bike, and fabulous listening/team skills, we need you!

Time commitment is 2 x 2 hour rehearsals, and of course, the event day itself. We're now registering the team via the eventbrite link below:
