The final day of TRNSMT festival ended in spectacular fashion with The Chemical Brothers putting on a show for all the senses, and homegrown acts getting their chance to shine.

The story of the festival has really been of big returns, not just for fans to live music but also for Scottish acts who have been desperate for the chance to play in front of their own for so long.

Easterhouse’s own Joesef was a popular choice on the King Tut’s Stage on Sunday evening, with his soulful voice carrying across the park and drawing the crowds in.

Ahead of his appearance, he told The Sunday Post: “I’m buzzing to be back home. I’ve not seen anyone since playing SWG3 which was a pretty mental show to end it on. At least we went out on a high!

“It’ll be great to see people, my mum and my mates are coming so you’ll probably hear them before you see them!”

There was representation from Bishopbriggs too, with Amy Macdonald playing a storming late afternoon set on the main stage.

And closing out the River Stage were Glasgow duo SAINT PHNX with a fun set also packed with emotion.

Brothers Stevie and Alan Jukes asked the crowd to give them a hand if they couldn’t make it through new song Happy Place, a tribute to their late father.

They also had some playful sibling rivalry, with one brother taking the left side of the crowd and the other the right and having a competition over who would be the loudest.

Main stage highlights

Back on the main stage, adopted Scots Snow Patrol, who formed back in 1994 in Dundee, had the crowd in a singalong mood with classics Chasing Cars and Open Your Eyes.

Ahead of playing the iconic Run, frontman Gary Lightbody said: “This next song was written in Glasgow 20 years ago in a wee house in the West End.

“I went to check it out today to see if it was still there and took a picture of it – whoever lives in that house, I wasn’t casing the joint!”

After performances also from Dermot Kennedy, Declan McKenna, Jay1, Ella Eyre and Lyra, closing out the festival were headliners The Chemical Brothers, who put on a spectacular music and light show to end TRNSMT on a high.

As dance anthems from Hey Boy Hey Girl to Galvanize pounded out for all the city to hear, mesmerising lasers and 3D graphics captivated the audience. Two giant robots even made an appearance on stage.

As the legendary electronic duo signed off with Block Rockin’ Beats, the party was only just beginning for some who danced the rest of the night away.

Festival returns next year

Around 150,000 people attended the festival over the course of the weekend, with authorities describing it as “a safe and successful event”.

Geoff Ellis, Festival Director, said: “What a weekend. I can’t think of a better way to bring the festival to a close than a block rocking set from electronic legends, The Chemical Brothers.

“I’d like to thank each and every fan, artist and crew member who has made this year’s event well worth the wait. The atmosphere around Glasgow Green has been incredible all weekend and it’s great to see so many smiling faces.

“The compliance with the lateral flow testing policies has been fantastic and lots of attendees have taken multiple tests as they visit throughout the weekend.”

Police Scotland’s Superintendent Emma Croft said: “We worked closely with TRNSMT organisers and other key partners to deliver a safe and successful event.  We are pleased that thousands of people were able to enjoy themselves at the first event like this in Glasgow for some considerable time.

“I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who behaved responsibly and enjoyed the event.”

“Over the course of the event there were a total of 41 arrests, two on Thursday night, 10 on Friday, 17 on Saturday, and 12 on Sunday.

“These related to various offences including drugs possession, minor assaults and breach of the peace.”

It was announced on Monday that the event would return to Glasgow Green between Friday 8 and Sunday 10 July 2022.
