Glasgow's international music reputation could be about to hit new heights.


A call has been made for a new summer music festival to be launched in the city .
Hillhead councillor Ken Andrew will this week ask the city council to investigate setting up an event along the lines of the world famous South by Southwest Festival, in Austin, Texas, which has previously attracted bands such as the Foo Fighters, Stone Roses and Lady Gaga.
Launched as an industry showcase in 1987, it is now the largest festival of its kind in the world, attracting over 2200 performers and bands over four days.
