Glasgow's Concert Halls
Bringing new audiences to Glasgow's iconic venues
The bass line
Full of talented artists and hidden venues, the city's music scene has a lot going on.
It can be hard to navigate — for tourists and locals alike.
Managing three main venues with festivals, concerts, workshops and more, Glasgow Life's music team needed to make it easy for users to explore what the city's most prominent venues have to offer.

Events API Integration
Integration with the Glasgow Life events database API to provide pre-filtered events search, event detail pages and related events.
Build in bespoke functionality, like embedding video and audio, social feeds and newsletter sign-up.
The website uses the API from Glasgow Life's events database — made by Storm ID — to display events taking place at each location. It allows users to search and filter by date, programme and venue.
The site supports clear user journeys from the events listing through signposting to Glasgow Life's tickets site.
Users navigate the website with primary and relative secondary navigation bars — both sticky as the user scrolls. The secondary navigation also works as a "scroll to" anchor: clicking a link will scroll the page down to the right section.
Client-side technologies used in the events database enable the dynamic generation of filters, to make it easier for users to seamlessly browse events.
