The main stage at a new music venue in Glasgow is being shut down following noise complaints.

Junction 1, a pop-up open-air music venue in Oatlands with a 5,000 person capacity, opened last month.

However, over the last two weekends, Glasgow City Council received 215 complaints about noise from residents living nearby.

The venue was found to have breached its licensing conditions.

Following an emergency meeting of the council on Wednesday, it was confirmed that the main stage will no longer be used for future events.

A spokeswoman for the council said: “Our licensing and environmental health officers held an urgent meeting with the licence holder for Junction 1 today to discuss the noise complaints received about the venue and the breach of licensing conditions last weekend.

“As a result of this meeting, the main stage will no longer be used for future events. It will be removed and future events will be held in the smaller garden area and an indoor area.

“In addition to this, the licence holder will issue letters to residents in Oatlands and Rutherglen explaining the temporary nature of the venue and the steps which will be taken to address the noise complaints.

“Our Environmental Health officers will attend the site on Saturday when the next event is due to take place to monitor noise levels and will continue to monitor levels for the remainder of the temporary licence.”
