The outdoor concert took place at Bellahouston Park on Friday and Saturday attracting thousands of revellers to the city’s South Side to see headliners Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds and Biffy Clyro.

Police Scotland said they made just six arrests at Friday’s show including a 24-year-old man who was arrested and detained in connection with culpable and reckless conduct. He is expected to appear at Glasgow Sheriff Court today.

A 31-year-old man was also arrested on a warrant and four men, ages 18, 24, 24, and 40, were arrested minor public disorder offences.

This was significantly lower than last year when 38 people were arrested at the event.

A Police Scotland spokeswoman said: “Following a significant period of planning with partner agencies, the Summer Sessions concerts have concluded. The number of arrests have been lower than any previous year, with 6 people arrested on Friday and no arrests deemed necessary on the Saturday.

"Police Scotland is committed to keeping people safe and will continue to work with partners to ensure the safety and well-being of attendees and maintain community confidence."

Craigton Councillor Alex Wilson praised the organisation of this year’s event.

He said: “It is a marked improvement on previous years. DF Concerts have listened to the councillors and residents.

“I was there both nights monitoring what was going on and although I received a few complaints on the Friday about road access, it has been a fantastic improvement.

“Friday’s problem were also dealt with very quickly for the Saturday following a meeting between DF Concerts, G4S security and myself.”

Councillor Wilson also said that the revellers left the area much quicker than previous years which was also a positive.

Elaine McSporran, of Mosspark Cokerhill Community Council, said the feedback from residents living close to the park was overall positive.

She added: “Security and police did a great job and there was little if no disturbance to residents."

The Evening Times previously reported on a public meeting ahead of the event which revealed more than 100 police officers were to be deployed to the festival.

Police Scotland officers were highly visible at the shows with G4S security carrying out thorough searches on concert-goers.

Revellers were also encouraged by Police Scotland to dump their booze at special amnesty bins and reminded of the drinking in a public place laws before heading into the shows.

Some fans, however, flouted rules by setting off flares during Noel Gallagher’s set on Friday.

A spokesperson for the Glasgow Summer Sessions said: "Now in its fourth year, the city music festival has grown to be a firm fixture on the Scottish outdoor event calendar and we're extremely proud to be bringing world class acts to Glasgow year on year.

“Last year alone, the event was worth £4million to the city's economy.

“We work hard with our partners to ensure the audience has a fun and safe time and we're delighted with the behaviour of the majority of our audience with very low arrest figures on Friday and none at all at Saturday's show.

“Glasgow Summer Sessions is an example of great partnership and multi-agency working and we hope that it will continue to boost the city's economy, providing a great experience for music lovers in Scotland"

The spokesperson added: "We work hard to inform music fans about the dangers of flares and the consequences of having one. We issue messaging to ticket buyers, on our website, across our social media channels and also on our Main Stage screens at the event.

“There were a few individuals who chose to ignore this advice across the weekend but they were dealt with quickly and effectively by stewards and police and no one was injured."
