The number of arrests has been lower than any previous year, with 6 people arrested on Friday and no arrests deemed necessary on the Saturday.” Elaine McSporran of Mosspark & Corkerhill Community Council said that “there was little if no disturbance to residents.” Alex Wilson of Craigton Coucil added: “It is a marked improvement on previous years. DF Concerts have listened to the councilors and residents.”
