Speaking about this year’s upcoming TRNSMT, Festival Director Geoff Ellis said: “TRNSMT has amazing fans who have played a huge part in making the festival one of the most popular events on the music calendar, so we’re thrilled to bring so many great acts to Glasgow for them, this July. From Main Stage heavyweights including Stormzy, Catfish and the Bottlemen, George Ezra, Gerry Cinnamon, and Snow Patrol to BRIT nominees Years & Years, Jess Glynne and Mabel, and great local talent such as The Snuts; we’ve put together three great days of music for the best audience in the world.”
Glasgow City Council leader Cllr Susan Aitken said: “TRNSMT has become a welcome addition to Glasgow’s world-renowned live music offer in just a few short years, reinforcing the city’s standing as one synonymous with successfully hosting major events. Attracting 200,000 fans over five days last year, along with bringing some of the biggest names in music to a festival in the heart of the city generated a major lift for the Glasgow economy worth millions of pounds. Tourism, hospitality and leisure businesses supporting hundreds of jobs really feel the benefit when we pull off a major event, at the same time as our city’s reputation for vibrancy and vitality receives another boost. Between now and July the Council will be working with the festival organisers and the local community to ensure that visitors and Glaswegians alike can enjoy and benefit from our third TRNSMT.”
