Thousands of fans have headed to Glasgow Green for the final day of the TRNSMT festival.

Music lovers basked in 23C temperatures as the heatwave continued throughout the five-day event.

The Killers are bringing the festival to a close, with hometown acts Franz Ferdinand and Chrvches also taking to the main stage.

Earlier, rising Scottish star Lewis Capaldi covered The Killers hit All These Things That I’ve Done as he entertained the crowds.

Fellow Scot Nina Nesbitt appeared with him on the main stage ahead of her headline appearance on the King Tuts Stage.

The TRNSMT first-timer and one-time Ed Sheeran muse said: “I love playing gigs in Scotland and I feel like festivals are even better because everybody is a bit drunk and just up for it.

“T in the Park was my favourite,” she added. “They’ve always been really fun crowds so fingers crossed for tonight.”

TRNSMT is in its second year after taking over from T in the Park as Scotland’s major summer music festival.

Spread over two weekends, Queen + Adam Lambert headlined on Friday, following Texas, the Alabama 3 and The Darkness.

The line-up the previous weekend included headline performances by Liam Gallagher and the Arctic Monkeys, with Wolf Alice, Interpol and the Courteeners among the other acts appearing.
