Glasgow Summer Sessions 2016 has been announced as the winner of the National Outdoor Events Association’s (NOEA) Large Festival of the Year at the 13th annual NOEA Awards ceremony last night in the Roman Baths and Pump Rooms, Bath.

Said Geoff Ellis, CEO of DF Concerts and Events:

“DF Concerts and Events are delighted to win this prestigious award. We are proud of how Glasgow Summer Sessions has grown since it began in 2013, and it has truly become a real fixture of Scotland’s musical calendar. We have worked hard to improve it year on year, and would like to thank Glasgow City Council and the local communities around Bellahouston Park for their collaboration. We are very grateful to the fans who have helped make the festival such a success.”

Said Susan Tanner, General Secretary of the NOEA:

“We’re pleased to award the Large Festival of the Year 2016 Award to Glasgow Summer Sessions, and agree with the judges’ comments that DF Concerts and Events’ has worked hard with the local council to deliver a successful city event.”

Almost 60,000 music fans attended the festival over two days in August 2016, which was headlined by Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds and Biffy Clyro.
A study by Ekos showed that last year’s Glasgow Summer Sessions was worth £4 million to the city’s economy. The study showed that 80% of those who attend the festival come from outside Glasgow and around 20% of those stay overnight in the city, further boosting their spend.
Following an incredibly successful and now award-winning Glasgow Summer Sessions 2016, plans are already underway for next year’s festival.
