The music event, which was due to take place on Glasgow Green across the weekend of July 10-12, will now happen on July 9-11, 2021.
Set to be headlined by Courteeners, Liam Gallagher and Lewis Capaldi, and also feature sets from Ian Brown, Foals, Snow Patrol, Keane, Sam Fender, Blossoms, Aitch, Little Simz, Rita Ora, and Twin Atlantic, the festival said they “moved quickly” to secure the same acts for the new dates.
“Here it is… your TRNSMT 2021 line-up!” organisers wrote on Twitter. “We know that tens of thousands of you bought tickets for TRNSMT 2020 and were looking forward to seeing this year’s line up, so we’ve moved quickly to secure the acts confirmed for 2020, for 2021’s festival! For more, go to our website.”

Last week, the Music Venue Trust launched the Save Our Venues campaign, with a crowdfunding bid to prevent 556 independent UK venues from closure. A few have already been saved, but there is still a long way to go to prevent “damage that would undermine the UK music industry for 20-30 years.”
MVT CEO Mark Davyd told NME that all of the government’s interventions to help venues essentially expired last Monday (April 27), when the sector started to “lose half a million pounds per day.”
