The opening day of Scotland’s biggest music festival was positively jam-packed with outstanding performances from the moment the gates opened until the sun set, with the likes of Courteeners, Little Simz, Sam Fender, Joy Crookes, Inhaler, AJ Tracey, Griff and even more, all making up for lost time and finally reuniting with the Scottish crowd, with more than a few kilts making an appearance.
Festival Director Geoff Ellis said: “It’s absolutely incredible to be back. So much work has gone into making this weekend happen and it was a pretty amazing moment when we opened the gates earlier today.
“The festival means so much to people and it really reminds you how much we’ve all missed live music. You can see that from the crowd’s reaction so it’s amazing be able to offer their first gig experience in such a long time.
“There’s an action-packed few days ahead and a real buzz of energy right across the city. With artists including Liam Gallagher, Primal Scream, Chemical Brothers and Amy McDonald still to take the stage, there’s nowhere else I’d rather be this weekend.”
Today, the festival received notice that they have achieved gold status from Attitude in Everything, following continual improvements over the years to make cinch presents TRNSMT as accessible and inclusive for everyone attending.
Louise Hutchison, Accessible Co-Ordinator for cinch presents TRNSMT said: “We’re absolutely delighted to be recognised as the first music festival in Scotland to be awarded Gold by Attitude is Everything for our work to make cinch presents TRNSMT more accessible and inclusive. Live music is really important for everybody and we’re incredibly proud to have created a festival built on equality.”
