A LOCAL DJ is bringing his beats home this weekend for a special gig which could be the forerunner to a brand new music festival for Inverclyde.

Hot off the heels of successful sets at TRNSMT in Glasgow, decks maestro Bruce Glenny is heading up a line-up of local acts for an outdoor gig at Royal Gourock Yacht club on Saturday.

Bruce hopes that the event - 'Terraza Del Clyde' - which is being organised through his events company, Summer Friends Productions, will be the first step towards launching a new summer music festival in Inverclyde.

The Gourock disc spinner will be joined by other local DJs Lewis Casement, Anna Barrie, Chris Morrison and veteran duo Bunty and Fitzy.

Bruce told the Tele that tomorrow's event is the 'the perfect way' to enjoy the summer sunshine.

He said: "I'm quite excited to be back as I've not played in Inverclyde in a few months.

"We're getting more and more support from local businesses for this now, I think they're realising that we're not just a bunch of young guys trying to throw a party.

"This has been in the works for more than six months.

"There's a lot of good outdoor space in Inverclyde and one of the things we've been discussing is a festival.

"Ideally we'd have it for over two days on a large scale, I think we'd want to do two stages.

"If we got good support for that it would be amazing, we've already approached a few people and spoken about it.

"It will take time, but Inverclyde has so much potential - both in terms of open spaces and local talent to showcase."

Tomorrow's yacht club gig is the latest event in a busy summer for the ambitious youngster, who wowed TRNSMT's Boogie Bar earlier this month and performed at an after-party for world famous DJ Fatboy Slim.

But Bruce insists that nothing beats playing for a home crowd.

He added: "It's always special coming home, more people come to see you and support you.

"Not everyone can go to the bigger shows so it's great to bring it home and especially when you can work with your friends.

"This summer's been mental, I've been at TRNSMT, played for Fatboy Slim and had a whole bunch of other events at some great venues.

"It's crazy playing tracks that you've made in your bedroom for crowds of 10,000 people.

"I've had a fair amount of airtime on a few radio stations now too, so things are going well.

"I've got some big stuff in the works for later in the year, the biggest of which is probably the five track EP that I'm working on.

"I'm looking forward to having more of my own music out there that people can listen to."
