As festivals go, the West End’s is pretty benign. There is nothing approaching the rock and roll excess that we’ve come to associate with the modern f-word, and certainly none of the mud, collapsed tents, and many acres of bare flesh that you’ll witness at T in the Park and its contemporaries.

Instead, it’s a bit like a more artistically-minded village fete – albeit one that has Nile Rodgers, Chaka Khan and Kool and the Gang playing at it. All three legendary funk acts have performed at the Kelvingrove Bandstand in the past couple of weeks: a mouth-watering lineup, for sure. But while the atmosphere at those gigs was jovial and celebratory enough, the Bandstand’s all-seating setup and the sexagenarian vintage of the performers made for a vibe that was more mellow than mental.

Thank goodness for the annual all-day shindig at Oran Mor then, which is as close as this most genteel and family-friendly of festivals gets to any semblance of chaos. It's hard to think of a scenario more appealing than its combination of bright sunshine, al fresco beers, and sweet music teasing the ears from afar. I’m losing count of how many years it has been a fixture, but its consistently solid bill of Scottish-accented indie and folk-tinged rock (this year featured Roddy Hart and the Lonesome Fire, Mull Historical Society and Paws) makes it one of the highlights of the city’s cultural calendar.

The day’s highlight came from an unlikely source. Paisley singer/songwriter Michael Cassidy's stripped-back set in the sweltering upstairs whisky bar had the place swooning, his divine melodies and sparse instrumentation combining to melt hearts the way the intimate setting was just melting the assembled crowd.

We asked revellers at West End Festival All-Dayer at Oran Mor

Q: Have you ever shot yourself in the foot?

John McKay, 64, Cumbernauld - "I got married at the age of 20... unwisely."

Elizabeth McKay, 57, Cumbernauld - "Yes, by getting married - twice."

Geraldine Tracey, 55, south side - "I once bumped into a friend I hadn't seen for years. I congratulated her on being pregnant. She wasn't pregnant"

Linda Rainsden, 50, Wolverhampton - "I seem to shoot myself in the foot every time I open my mouth"

Lesley Douglas, 53, Houston - "I do it all the time. My hearing is not great, people don't realise, and I'm always giving the wrong answers to questions"

Lynn Alexander, 59, Linwood - "I was once talking to someone who had a stutter. I didn't realise, and was trying to hurry him up, whilst people behind him were wildly signalling. I didn't know what they were trying to tell me"

Jim Law, 42, Burnside - "I once got annoyed with a lorry driver who was double parked. I tooted my horn at him and promptly ran into the car in front. He gave me a wave as he drove by"

Ruth Law, 34, Burnside - "I don't believe in ghosts, and am known for it. I once heard three knocks in the house. I thought it was Jim winding me up, but it wasn't. Never got to the bottom of what what it was, and I never get to live it down"

Chester Studzinski, 70, Summerston - "I'm just back from Croatia. When I was there I went to use the gents. It seemed an odd arrangement with a grille on the floor and a big button on the wall. When I finished my business, I pressed the button and got soaked. It was a shower."

Donnie McVey, 60, Paisley - "I'm working on the new tunnel at Paisley Road. I was operating a silt sucking machine. There was some blockage and the thing exploded. I was covered in silt from head to toe"

Murray Ross, 26, Hillhead - "I work in Oran Mor. I once knocked back a guy who had a stutter. I thought he was steaming"
