As T in the Park takes another break, TRNSMT returns to Glasgow Green to take the reins with a second year of cracking music. Last year’s inaugural event was a success, and expect the 2018 edition to take things to bigger, better new heights.
1. Stereophonics (Friday, June 29)
Why they’ll be great: They’ve been touring arenas for ages and have a ton of classic material for festival crowds to get into.
2. Liam Gallagher (Saturday, June 30)
Why he’ll be great: He proved himself as a solo artist on last year’s festival circuit; headlining the festival on the back of his Number One album ‘As You Were’ and accompanying tour, Liam has a load of new favourites for everyone to get into – and a huge stock of Oasis material as well.
3. Arctic Monkeys (Sunday, July 1)
Why they’ll be great: The return of Arctic Monkeys is one of the big music stories of 2018. Whatever music is coming on album six, it’s going to be a thrill to hear it live here alongside the rest of the band’s beloved discography.
4. Queen + Adam Lambert (Friday, July 6)
Why they’ll be great: Have you seen Queen’s back catalogue?! Banger after banger after banger. They might not be the coolest band in the world, but they – and current frontman Adam Lambert – are undeniably great performers.
5. The Killers (Sunday, July 8)
Why they’ll be great: At last year’s British Summer Time Festival, The Killers reminded us why we love them so much: they have a hugely charismatic frontman in Brandon Flowers, and a discography packed with bangers, from ‘Mr Brightside’ to ‘The Man’.
