TRNSMT Glasgow: The Chemical Brothers set was so loud it could be heard eight miles away in Renfrew

By Craig Williams

Legendary electronic duo The Chemical Brothers brought TRNSMT to a close last night with a mesmerising show that saw festivalgoers turn Glasgow Green into the world's biggest dance floor as they lapped up the anthem-packed set.

Dream-like visuals and dance anthems such as 'Hey Boy Hey Girl' and 'Galvanize' has the thousands gathered on the Green to see their Sunday night headline slot in raptures - and it seems that others miles away from the festival site enjoyed the gig too.

That's because judging by Twitter, the gig was so loud that folk all over the city - and further afield - could hear the set clearly, including residents living as far away as Renfrew - which is about eight miles from Glasgow Green as the crow flies.
