Radiohead, Kasabian and Biffy Clyro to headline new Glasgow festival TRNSMT

Radiohead, Kasabian and Biffy Clyro are to headline Glasgow's TRNSMT, the new festival from the organisers of T In The Park. 

Set to take place on Glasgow Green from July 7-9, other acts will include The 1975, Catfish And The Bottlemen, Belle & Sebastian, London Grammar, George Ezra, Twin Atlantic, Two Door Cinema Club, The Kooks, Blossoms, Rag‘N’Bone Man and Circa Waves.

Earlybird tickets for the non-camping event go on sale Friday, priced £59.50 (£99 for VIP tickets) for one day, £105 (£175) for two days and £149 (£225) for three days. 

“We’re incredibly pleased to be bringing such a fresh, new festival to Scotland," said Geoff Ellis, head of promoter DF Concerts. "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."

Although not billed as such, the festival is widely considered to be a replacement for T In The Park, which is "taking a break" for 2017, having experienced a turbulent couple of years since being forced to move from Balado, Kinross, to the grounds of Strathallan Castle in 2015.

Last year’s T saw performances from acts including Stone Roses, Calvin Harris, Red Hot Chili Peppers, LCD Soundsystem, The Last Shadow Puppets, James Bay, Jess Glynne, Disclosure, Bastille and The 1975, but was marred by three drug-related deaths at the campsite.
