and live on Freeview channel 276
The Glasgow Green music festival usually takes place over a weekend in July, but has been postponed over concerns that mass-attended events may not be possible in Scotland by summer.
So, how will this affect those who had bought tickets for the July dates and will the lineup be the same for the September dates? This is what we know so far.
When will TRNSMT be held in 2021?
The festival will now be held from 10-12 September 2021, in Glasgow Green.
The event’s official website announced the move, in order to ensure “it is the best festival weekend of your life”, adding that TRNSMT organisers “can’t wait to be back” after the 2020 festival was cancelled due to coronavirus.
Festival director Geoff Ellis said Scotland Covid restrictions and the preparation time needed to put on an event of TRNSMT's scale, has resulted in the event being pushed back.
He said: “September gives us the opportunity to put on the best festival we can for our fans after such a long time without any live music, and we will, of course, work with all relevant authorities to ensure we follow any guidelines that may be in place in September."
Mr Ellis also thanked fans for their "patience and support" over the last 12 months.
Who will headline?
As well as a new date, the festival will now be headlined by The Chemical Brothers, as opposed to Lewis Capaldi.
The new date did not fit with Capaldi’s schedule, though it has been promised that he will join the lineup in 2022.
Other headliners, Liam Gallagher and The Courteeners, will appear as planned at the event.
Across the weekend, the main stage will be a platform for The Courteeners, KSI, Keane, Liam Gallagher, Snow Patrol and Dermot Kennedy, among others.
Ahead of the festival, Saturday headliner Liam Gallagher told his fans: "Brothers and Sisters, can't wait to get up to Glasgow TRNSMT and blow your minds. It's been far too long. C'mon you know LG x"
On the King Tut’s stage, Tom Odell, Becky Hill, Miraa May and Scot’s star Joesef will play throughout the three-day festival.
A full list of the revised line-up can be found on the TRNSMT website.
