TRNSMT festival to become a permanent fixture

TRNSMT boss Geoff Ellis has said that Scotland’s newest festival, which kicks off tomorrow at Glasgow Green, will become a permanent fixture.

Ellis, CEO of DF Concerts who run TRNSMT and T in the Park, said TRNSMT was ‘never a replacement’ for the long-running Scottish festival and both can ‘coexist’ if the Strathallan event returns.

He said: “It absolutely definitely is coming back next year. That was always the intention of TRNSMT – to be permanent.

“It was never meant it be a one off.

“You don’t want to say it’s happening every year until you see how the public react to it, but tickets sales have been fantastic and exceeded all our expectations,” continued Ellis.

“TRNSMT is not a replacement for T In The Park. It’s an addition to the music calendar and completely different type of event.

“One doesn’t need to replace the other. TRNSMT isn’t a replacement. It’s something different and they can both coexist.

“We’re not ready to say about our plans for the future but I’m happy to say TRNSMT is returning.”

TRNSMT kicks off tomorrow at Glasgow Green – with Radiohead topping the bill on Friday, Leicester party monsters Kasabian on Saturday and Scots rockers Biffy Clyro on Sunday.

Also on tomorrow’s bill will be Belle and Sebastian, London Grammar, Rag’N’Bone Man, Everything Everything and JP Cooper.
