The event comes in the place of T In The Park. T has been marred by problems at its Strathallan Castle site– including one festival-goer being found dead, two teenagers dying of drug-related incidents, a cash machine being stolen, traffic and logistical issues and much more. Last year T confirmed that they’d be “taking a break” in 2017 – before hosting the inaugural alternative event TRNSMT, which saw performances from the likes of Radiohead, Biffy Clyro, Kasabian, London Grammar, The 1975, Belle & Sebastian and more.
