About TRNSMT Music Festival
What’s this event all about?
Following on from the incredibly popular but now-defunct T in The Park, the TRNSMT music festival is set to become the biggest music event in the Scottish calendar. After receiving extremely positive reviews when the festival was first hosted in 2017, the rock and pop music extravaganza will be held again in Glasgow’s centrally located Glasgow Green over two weekends in June and July, with some of Britain’s biggest headlining acts performing sets on massive purpose-built sound stages in the enormous expanse of parkland.Read more...
What can you do there?
Attendance figures for the event in 2017 numbered in the region of 120,000, a figure which is expected to be surpassed in 2018 as music-loving Scots flock to the city to catch major acts like The Stereophonics, Liam Gallagher, The Arctic Monkeys, Texas, Franz Ferdinand and The Killers. Due to its central location, there will be ample opportunities to book into accommodation within the city boundaries and the excellent Glasgow transport system will ensure that event-goers will get to the show with a minimum of fuss.
Visitors to the city will know Glasgow Green for a number of reasons, mainly due to the fact it’s a landscaped oasis right in the heart of the city where visitors can relax by the banks of the River Clyde, but also because it’s the location of two of the most widely photographed buildings in all of Glasgow; The People’s Palace and the Templeton Building.
