The Glasgow Mela, which takes place in Kelvingrove Park in the West End, will feature an extra day of activities for school pupils.
The event, to be held on the weekend of June 22-24 will feature a Friday dance spectacular with 10 schools from across the city performing for more than 3000 Glasgow children.
And these P5 pupils from St Stephen's Primary, Sighthill were practising their kathak dance ahead of the show.
Anne Healey, St Stephen's head teacher said: "The children can't wait to be up on stage, showing off their dance skills.
"They have really enjoyed working with the dance teacher.
"Our school community is made-up of many cultures – 39 different nationalities – so we learn a lot from each other and the O2 Glasgow Mela is the ideal showcase for our pupils' talents."
The park event will include a summer ice rink.
Pupils will also be treated to professional acts such as Dholi drummers, Virtue Dholies and the Desi Bravehearts, a Glasgow-based dance group specialising in Bollywood-fusion dancing.
Jill Miller, director of culture at Glasgow Life, said: "Glasgow is a vibrant, multi-racial city and the O2 Glasgow Mela continues to be a dazzling platform that brilliantly represents that multiculturalism."
