TRNSMT cancelled because of coronavirus restrictions

Music festival TRNSMT has been cancelled in a move described as “unavoidable” by organisers.

The decision was made after First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said she could not conceive having “large numbers of people gathering together at large events” in the near future during the coronavirus pandemic.

A statement from the festival said: “We are absolutely gutted to announce that due to the comments made by the First Minister during the daily briefing on April 23, TRNSMT will be unable to go ahead as planned in July.

“We did not want to take this step but it is unavoidable. The health and safety of our fans, artists, staff and community will always be our top priority.”

Liam Gallagher and Lewis Capaldi were due to headline this summer’s festival.
