Their frontman Kyle Falconer, appeared on stage wearing a bright red Umbro two-piece and acclaimed: “Do you get any better than Glasgow? I’m from Dundee and I say that. Glasgow is the f*cking b*llocks,” the singer proceed to kick off the set with Grace. 

The band presented a united front after an on-stage bust-up, as we reported back in May.

So far on Friday, crowds have enjoyed sets from acts including The View; Joesef; and Declan Welsh & the Decadent West.

Former Beautiful South singer Paul Heaton will also play as will Niall Horan from One Direction.

Heaton was popular in Glasgow’s east end when he put substantial bar tabs behind five bars near to Glasgow Green.

He tweeted: “Glasgow, as a thank you, and a small amount of help during the cost of greed crisis, Paul is leaving some money behind the bar at a few local pubs near to Trnsmt festival so that some of you can have a drink on him tomorrow afternoon.”

The festival is due to be headlined on Friday by Pulp, who are playing their first gigs this year in more than a decade.

Friday will be the band’s first show in Scotland since they played the main stage at T in the Park in 2011.
