The sunshine came out in Glasgow as pop’s finest descended on the SECC for In:Demand live on Sunday May 20.
The one day music festival once again proved a hit with fans of all ages (particularly young screaming girls) as acts like The Saturdays, Tulisa, Alexandra Burke, Tinchy Stryder, Matt Cardle, Marcus Collins, Conor Maynard and many many more took to the stage to deafening cheers.
Matt Cardle, The Saturdays and Tinchy have performed at the hit event before, but what keeps them coming back? The Scottish crowds.
Yes, it may seem like a cliché, but music makers just can’t get enough of us screaming Scots!
Former X Factor champ Matt said: “It’s always a great vibe down here: The Scots know how to give it large.”
Cover Drive, who are the bubbliest band we have ever met, said: “The crowd is amazing here. 10,000 screaming little girls, it’s like woah! We always have our best time in Scotland to be honest, we love it here.”
Tinchy, clearly shielding his eyes from the first glimpse of sun we’ve had north of the border in a while, said: “It’s my third time here at In:Demand it’s wicked each time. The crowds have got so much energy in Scotland, Glasgow. They bring it out of us man and I love being here.”
Move over One Direction – hot boyband-of-the-moment Lawson could hardly contain their excitement as they told us: “It’s an amazing venue, the line-up is incredible and we’re so happy to be involved in In:Demand.” Judging by the screams of delight when they took to the stage, it’s safe to say the females in the audience were just as happy the lads were involved.
Girl group Stooshe said performing at the event was “amazing and really overwhelming”, while Marcus Collins was keeping a close eye on the audience as he rocked through his rousing set.
The X Factor runner-up said: “It was incredible. The crowds are so responsive and I really enjoyed it. I always notice the crowds. I’m very aware of what’s going on and always in Scotland it’s huge.”
Alexandra Burke didn’t let being under-the-weather spoil her fun, as she said: “Very excited to be back here. The support is unreal so it’s a real blessing to be back.”
Conor Maynard – scream girls – said: “I saw the line-up and I was like ‘am I considered amongst these people?’ It was crazy!”
And The Saturdays, as gorgeous and glamorous as ever in jewelled corsets, were just as impressed, as Mollie King told us: “The Scottish crowds are so good and we came up here in December for our tour and they were one of our best crowds so we’re really excited.”
