We're incredibly pleased to be bringing such a fresh, new festival to Scotland.
Said Geoff Ellis, Head of DF Concerts
Glasgow, the UNESCO City of Music and cultural and artistic hub, will provide the backdrop as TRNSMT interrupts Glasgow's summer air with an electrifying celebration of music, bringing people together to enjoy the acts they already love, discover the new, and undergo life-affirming experiences.
TRNSMT will offer entertainment over two stages – with a line-up that will highlight talent across the musical spectrum, from the most influential band in fans' lifetime to their favourite new, under the radar artist on the King Tut's Stage – powered by Utilita. Fans will enjoy music, arts, culture, bars and restaurants as they customise their individual festival experience across the 3 days.
Kasabian and Biffy Clyro will also be headliners for TRNSMT
Said Geoff Ellis, Head of DF Concerts: "We're incredibly pleased to be bringing such a fresh, new festival to Scotland.
"TRNSMT will bring together the best in live music, from global acts to the best cutting edge artists on the King Tut's Stage, powered by Utilita – against the iconic skyline of Glasgow.
"Over the next few weeks, we'll be announcing the rest of the line-up, as well as all the additional experiences that TRNSMT will have to offer such as mouth-watering street food and a diverse offering of drinks. Stay tuned – there's plenty more to come!"

"TRNSMT is already shaping up to be an exciting event that will add to that global reputation – and become a big date in the city's summer calendar."
TRNSMT has also officially partnered with Utilita Energy, the UK's leading provider of smart Pay-As-You-Go energy, who will be the event partner for the King Tut's Stage – powered by Utilita. Customers will also have access to a presale for TRNSMT.
