TRNSMT organisers DF Concerts today confirmed that Liam Gallagher will headline the Glasgow Green event on Saturday 30 June – in what is the first wave of announcements for next year’s festival.
The indie icon and former Oasis frontman will be joined by fellow British stars Courteeners, Wolf Alice and J Hus.
TRNSMT will return to Glasgow Green in 2018 and will be extending its music offering across two weekends on 29 June-1 July plus 6 and 8 July 2018, as revealed by festival organisers DF Concerts last week.
Gallagher is set to play his biggest ever solo show in Scotland at TRNSMT – and he’s sure to deliver a hit-packed set, with both Oasis’ impressive back catalogue and tunes from his massive-selling debut album, As You Were, to draw from.
Joining Gallagher on the first weekend of the festival are Courteeners, who’ve been described as “one of the best live British bands of the moment” by Clash Music.
Wolf Alice released their acclaimed second album Visions Of A Life in September, which followed its predecessor to number two in the UK charts and is already a staple on end of year lists.
And, in the final announcement in this first wave, TRNSMT have revealed that English grime artist J Hus will also join these homegrown British acts to play TRNSMT 2018.
TRNSMT celebrated an incredible inaugural event in 2017 with stand-out performances from headliners Radiohead, Kasabian and Biffy Clyro all now firmly established in the TRNSMT hall of fame.
Glasgow city centre will once again provide the backdrop to the event in Glasgow Green next summer, offering fans an amazing summer of music with five events in the heart of the city.
“We’re absolutely thrilled to announce TRNSMT 2018’s line-up – all four bands are testament to the brilliant British music scene right now and will offer an amazing day of music for TRNSMT fans on 30 June,” said Geoff Ellis, head of DF Concerts.
“It’s set to be a brilliant summer of music. We’re bringing some of the best world-class artists to Glasgow Green, with many more exciting announcements still to come.
“Much like in 2017, TRNSMT will showcase some of the best up and coming talent in the UK, mixed with world-class artists so stay tuned as there’s so much more to come.”
