Stereophonics to headline Friday 29 June leg, with The Script, James Bay and Jessie J also confirmed
Stereophonics have been announced as the second headliner of TRNSMT Festival 2018, with additional acts also announced.
After a successful first year in 2017, TRNSMT 2018 will now take place at Glasgow Green across two weekends – from Friday 29 June – Sunday 1 July, and on Friday 6 and Sunday 8 July.
It was recently revealed that Liam Gallagher will be headlining the Saturday 30 June leg, with it now confirmed that Stereophonics will headline the day prior on Friday 29 June, topping a bill that will also include The Script, James Bay and Jessie J.
Stereophonics frontman Kelly Jones says of the news: “TRNSMT line-up looks like a great weekend for all! Happy to be headlining the Friday and getting another chance to play in front of the beautiful always up for it Scottish crowds!”
Pre-sale tickets will be available from 9am on Wednesday 29 November before going on general sale at 9am on Friday 1 December. Tickets will be available here.
Meanwhile, Arctic Monkeys are among the other acts rumoured to be headlining the festival next year.
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.
Geoff Ellis, Head of DF Concerts, recently said: “It’s set to be a brilliant summer of music. We’re bringing some of the best world-class artists to Glasgow Green, with many more exciting announcements still to come. TRNSMT’s outstanding audience in July this year showed the world why TRNSMT should be central to the festival music calendar. Much like in 2017, TRNSMT will showcase some of the best up and coming talent in the UK, mixed with world-class artists so stay tuned as there’s so much more to come!”
