The festival will run from 3-15 September 2019 and will feature over 50 events taking place in venues around the town centre, attracting up to 6000 young people from Paisley, Renfrewshire and beyond.

There are three strands to the programme: Kids (age 5-12 year olds); Teens (age 13-18) and Young Adults (18-25 year olds).

Fresh from a summer tour, taking in Kelburn Garden Party, Belladrum, King Tut’s and the Outwith festival, the formidable Man of Moon bring their juggernaut of sound to Paisley. On the night they will be joined by up-and-coming Tiny Murder, who will bring their unique cinematic dream pop to the audience one of the most talented young groups to come from Renfrewshire, the unmissable Ghostbaby and electronic duo, Lunir.
