NME Festival blog: First headliner and acts announced for TRNSMT festival 2018
Liam Gallagher has been confirmed as the first headliner of TRNSMT Festival 2018.
After a successful first year, this year TRNSMT will now take place across two weekends – from Friday 29 June – Sunday 1 July, and on Friday 6 and Sunday 8 July.
Announcing his set, Liam Gallagher said that he was thrilled to be returning to the city where Oasis were first signed, Tweeting: ”Back to the scene of the crime King Tut’s it’s been too long…”
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.
Geoff Ellis, Head of DF Concerts, added: “We’re absolutely thrilled to announce TRNSMT 2018’s line-up – all four bands are testament to the brilliant British music scene right now and will offer an amazing day of music for TRNSMT fans on 30 June.
“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!”
The event comes in the place of T In The Park. T was was 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 many more.
