Airport music festival launched
A competion for a £1000 music prize has been launched at Glasgow Airport. The first six bands and solo acts - from a shortlist of 24 - performed for passengers in the terminal on Thursday at the launch of the airport's ‘Airplay’ sessions. Passengers then vote for their favourite act through a page on the website.
The competition aims to highlight Glasgow's status as a UN City of Music, awarded in 2008 because of its rich musical heritage. The honour acknowledges the city's musical past and its role in music-making, performance and enjoyment.
Just under 100 acts entered the competition with 24 - mostly from Scotland, with one act from Northern Ireland - selected to perform. Four heats are being held on Thursday 15, 22 and 29 July and Thursday 5 August. The winner of each heat, determined by public vote, will go forward to the live final on Thursday 12 August, with the final winner chosen by a panel of judges.
