Mum’s the word for DJ Sean at TRNSMT show

Rutherglen Reformer - - The Ticket - Jonathan Ged­des

An Ud­dingston DJ was de­lighted to wow fans at Scot­land’s big­gest mu­sic fes­tial re­cently - es­pe­cially as one of the crowd was his mum!

For­mer Holy Cross pupil Sean Cal­laghan has al­ready had a mem­o­rable year, per­form­ing in the French Alps af­ter win­ning a con­test or­gan­ised by Coors Light. His most re­cent show was at the TRNSMT fes­ti­val at Glas­gow Green, which was head­lined by Ra­dio­head, Kasabian and Biffy Clyro. Sean was per­form­ing at the Smirnoff House stage on both the Fri­day and Sun­day of the event.

He told the Ticket: “DJing at such a big fes­ti­val in my hometown was a great ex­pe­ri­ence.

“I took my mum along on the Fri­day to watch me DJ and ex­pe­ri­ence her first ever fes­ti­val - she was de­lighted and it was nice to share it all with her.

“The Smirnoff House stage was my favourite place as it was a unique setup and had a great at­mos­phere about it all week­end, from up and com­ing DJs to big head­lin­ers like Monki, Sil­i­cone Soul and Jasper James, and the crowd was go­ing for it start to fin­ish.

“From the get go on Fri­day it was a re­ally good at­mos­phere and it didn’t drop all week­end.”

Sean was grate­ful for the chance to per­form be­fore big crowds, and thanked Mix­mag and Smirnoff for giv­ing him that chance.

He said: “The guys from Mix­mag have given me a mas­sive push and trusted me to DJ at such a big event, I can’t thank them enough for such a great op­por­tu­nity.

“I got pos­i­tive feed­back from ev­ery­one I spoke to, from walk­ing off the stage and peo­ple shout­ing me over to say they en­joyed my set to peo­ple mes­sag­ing me on Face­book and most im­por­tantly the Mix­mag and Smirnoff guys giv­ing me great feed­back.”

Now the tal­ented 27-year-old is look­ing ahead to the fu­ture.

He added: “2017 has been a great year so far and isn’t go­ing quiet any­time soon.

“Apart from my Satur­day res­i­dence in the Junk­yard in Hamil­ton, I am also work­ing on some pro­duc­tion and get­ting to grips with that side of it.”
