A GOUROCK DJ fresh from performing to over 6,000 people at Scotland's biggest music festival says it was a 'dream come true'.

Bruce Glenny started DJing when he was just 16 and since then he has worked his way up through the club scene both locally and in Glasgow.

The 21-year-old was offered a slot at TRNSMT festival to play a two hour slot of 'high tempo warehouse and remix dance' music on the 'Boogie Bar' stage.

After a successful first slot on Friday, festival bosses invited him back to Glasgow Green and offered him a longer slot two days later.

Bruce, who is studying sound engineering at Glasgow Caledonian University, told the Tele: "I'm still on a high from the event, I just can't believe it happened.

"To start out as self-taught DJ, to performing to thousands of people at TRNSMT is unreal.

"I had people come up to me to tell me how good it was and to take photos with me.

"The whole experience was mad, I hope it's the start of something more."

Bruce attended the festival with two friends and was given access-all-areas passes for the duration of the weekend.

The university student was on the bill alongside acts such as Liam Gallagher, Snow Patrol and The Chemical Brothers.

He says the exposure has gained him many new followers on social media and already created new opportunities.

Bruce, who is also a lifeguard at Gourock Pool, told the Tele: "I played my first proper gig in Word Up not long after I turned 18 and just before the pandemic I had started playing in Glasgow.

"I thought after lockdown I'd be back to square one, but the opposite has happened.

"To be given a platform and be on the bill next to some of Scotland's best DJs is so surreal.

"I have now had various promoters and nightclubs get in touch and I'm in the process of getting management.

"Having people stop me to tell me they loved the set was insane.

"The whole thing has been a total dream come true."
