Liam Gallagher will headline next Summer’s event. Formerly of Oasis and Beady Eye fame, now an artist in his own right, Gallagher will return to Glasgow, a city which in many ways rose the Britpop star to fame and got them signed, to headline Saturday night.
Also confirmed for this evening: alt-rockers Wolf Alice, rousing Mancunians The Courteeners and Afrobeats artist J Hus with much more yet to be announced over the coming months.
Following the success of its first year, TRNSMT festival will return in 2018, taking place once again at Glasgow Green this time over two weekends: Friday 29 June- Sunday 1st July as well as Friday 6th and 8th July.
TRNSMT serves as a fitting and central replacement for once legendary festival T in the Park, which took a break following an array of issues surrounding 2015’s event. A change in location amid legal and logistical challenges plagued the event but in turn allowed promoters DF Concerts to form a new alternative.
The Head of DF Concerts and organiser of this event, Geoff Ellis said: “We’re absolutely thrilled to announce TRNSMT 2018’s line-up – all four bands are testament to the brilliant British music scene right now and will offer an amazing day of music for TRNSMT fans on 30th June.
“It’s set to be a brilliant summer of music. We’re bringing some of the best world-class artists to Glasgow Green, with many more exciting announcements still to come. TRNSMT’s outstanding audience in July this year showed the world why TRNSMT should be central to the festival music calendar. Much like in 2017, TRNSMT will showcase some of the best up and coming talent in the UK, mixed with world-class artists so stay tuned as there’s so much more to come!”
