From Stormzy’s Police escort to the festival on Friday night, epic sets from Gerry Cinnamon and Catfish and the Bottlemen, singalongs and fireworks from George Ezra plus an entrance worthy of a Scottish superstar from Lewis Capaldi – it was an incredible weekend of music. With the sun shining down on Glasgow Green, fans caught sets from some of the biggest names in music including Bastille, Richard Ashcroft, Years & Years and Sigrid, plus checked out the best up and coming bands on the King Tut’s Stage Powered By Utilita Energy with outstanding sets from Example, The Hunna, Circa Waves and more.
As the sun set on the sold-out festival, organisers DF Concerts confirmed dates for 2020 as 10th – 12th July with a spectacular projection on Glasgow’s McLennan Arch and Trongate Clock Tower, seen by tens of thousands of fans who exited from Glasgow Green after George Ezra’s closing performance.
Festival Director Geoff Ellis said: “After three hugely successful years, TRNSMT is now an established part of Glasgow’s annual cultural calendar and we’re proud to have projected our 2020 dates into the heart of the city.
“Planning is already well underway, and we’ll continue to work closely with Glasgow City Council, councillors and local residents to make next year’s event another incredible year for TRNSMT’s audience – that are a credit to Scotland – and the amazing city of Glasgow.
“This year’s sold-out festival was the best yet with so many highlights; from Stormzy’s covering a Lewis Capaldi song on Friday evening, Gerry Cinnamon’s huge performance on the Main Stage, the sun-drenched set from the outstanding Sigrid, Catfish and the Bottlemen’s closing Saturday night, plus George Ezra and Lewis Capaldi’s epic Main Stage performances, it was an outstanding weekend of music. We can’t wait to return to Glasgow Green next summer for another phenomenal weekend of music.”
