A HEARTWARMING video shows the moment a music-loving wheelchair user was lifted into the air by revellers at a music festival – so he could see the stage.

The clip shows the ecstatic man smiling with joy as music fans lifted his wheelchair from the ground during the Arctic Monkeys’ headline set at the TRNSMT festival in Glasgow on Sunday.

The fan is shown smiling away in delight while fans all around him cheer when he emerges above the crowd.

A stunning sunset is shown in the background while the unknown man is filmed singing and raising his arm in the air, enjoying having one of the best views to the gig.

A crowd around him is then shown jumping as the song kicks in before he is lowered back to the ground.

He is then shown thanking some of the crowd members before the clip ends.

The video was uploaded onto Twitter on Monday evening and has since attracted over 45,000 views.

Ben Galligan, 19, who filmed the clip, captioned it: “Boy was loving it. Class to see.”

The 19-year-old from Edinburgh said: “We were standing in a big group singing away, he rolled up behind us and people noticed he was singing.

“People offered to lift him and he said yeah so they grabbed him and up he went.

“It was during Arctic Monkeys, they were unbelievable.

“I didn’t even see him most of the Arctic Monkeys gig, he just kind of appeared behind us out of nowhere.

“He was shaking hands with people afterwards thankful.

Ben added: “Can’t be a Scottish gig.”

One Twitter user, @xzabethhh, tagged one of her friends in the video and wrote: “Do you remember being with him half the day? no clue who he is but he was lovely.”
