Music festival TRSNMT is set to welcome 50,000 fans to Glasgow Green in September.

The festival’s organiser, Geoff Ellis, said he was “thrilled to confirm” the return of the event, which will take place from September 10-12.

The three-day festival be closed by the Chemical Brothers, with Liam Gallagher and The Courteeners also headlining.

Ellis, who is also CEO of DF Concerts said: “We’re absolutely thrilled to confirm TRNSMT will be taking place this year on the weekend of September 10 – 12 and can’t wait to be back on Glasgow Green.

“We’ll be making some further updates in the coming days but would like to remind everyone that tickets for last year’s rescheduled event remain valid and we’ve also got tickets on-sale for each day for anyone who hasn’t managed to get one yet. It’s been quite the wait, but we promise, it’ll be worth it.”

Last year’s festival was cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic, and this year’s event was intially scheduled to take place in July.

It was moved back two months in a bid to welcome as many festival-goes as possilble amid the ongoing easing of lockdown restrictions.

The change of date from July 9-11 means Lewis Capaldi, Rita Ora, Foals, Jimmy Eat World and Loyle Carner will be unable to perform as previously arranged.

First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said on Tuesday that almost all of Scotland’s remaining Covid-19 restrictions – including an end to social distancing and limits on the size of social gatherings – are to end from Monday, August 9.
