TRNSMT’s epic lineup is something of a bolt from the blue for a festival that, in 2017, replaces the beleaguered T in the Park.

The new festival was announced earlier this month and although Radiohead were rumoured from day one, the sheer volume of major acts is a surprise.

Radiohead’s performance will be on Friday 7 July, followed by Kasabian’s headline spot on Saturday 8 and Biffy Clyro on Sunday 9.

Kasabian’s appearance is surprising as their Reading and Leeds Festival slots had been billed as a UK festival exclusive.

TRNSMT takes place at Glasgow Green, and tickets go on sale this Friday at 9am.
