Organisers of the TRNSMT festival have hailed an “incredible weekend” for live music as they announced dates for next year’s event.
Singer Lewis Capaldi closed out an electrifying three-day party on Glasgow Green which also featured performances from Paolo Nutini and The Strokes among dozens of others.
Around 150,000 fans attended across the weekend, despite issues with queuing on Saturday that left hundreds stranded outside in soaring temperatures.
Festival director Geoff Ellis described Capaldi’s performance as a “moment for the history books,” adding an influx of home grown talent was his highlight for the year.
The festival will now welcome back revellers on over the weekend of July 7-9, 2023 for the next edition, with a price freeze on tickets when they go on sale from 9am on Friday, July 15.
“It was great to welcome back international artists to Glasgow Green, but also to see excited music fans enjoying our best homegrown talent, with Paolo Nutini closing day one and The Snuts getting the crowd going on Saturday,” Ellis said.
“Scotland’s very own Lewis Capaldi brought the sold-out festival to a close, which was a moment for the history books.
“Festivals are all about discovering the next big thing and this year, we put some of the brightest up-and-coming talent on the line-up.
“Brooke Combe, Dylan John Thomas, Rianne Downey, and BEMZ are just a few of the rising stars that stole the show and we can’t wait to see them on the main stage in the future.”
