PUBS and bars in Glasgow’s east end enjoyed a sales boost this month thanks to music festival TRNSMT.

120,000 revellers descended on Glasgow Green across the three-day festival (July 7 to 9), with headliners including Radiohead, Kasabian and Biffy Clyro.

And the festival was music to some local operators’ ears, who said they saw a spike in sales across the weekend.

Jordan Grierson of Maggie May’s on the city’s Trongate told SLTN it was “definitely a lot busier” while TRNSMT was in town.

David Disbrowe of The 13th Note on Glasgow’s King Street said the festival “was fantastic for us”, adding: “I think it’s a great thing for the city.”

Saint Lukes on Bain Street was also busier. General manager David Brown said: “Anything new coming to the area, we’re all for it.”
