TRNSMT Announce the Arctic Monkeys!

TRNSMT Festival is back for its second year, with a double weekend running order it’s already set to be bigger and better than 2017. The extensive 5-day line up already features The Killers, Liam Gallagher and Stereophonics, but now we’ve had some more exciting names added to the bill.

Arctic Monkeys are back! This morning the Sheffield indie band announced a lot of European festival appearances, and amongst those was the only UK date (so far!) at TRNSMT. Along with Arctic Monkeys headlining there’s also been some other big names announced. New York rockers Interpol, Stockport’s finest Blossoms and Alex Turners best mate Miles Kane will also be playing the festival.

TRNSMT will take place in Glasgow, Scotland, at Glasgow Green between two consecutive weekends, 29th June – 1st July and 6th & 7th July 2018. Initially announced as a replacement festival for T in The Park last year, with the current status of T being unknown, it’s very exciting to have TRNSMT back for a second edition.

With one full day of music and a headliner still to be announced, the festival already has must-see acts amongst the weekends including; Courteeners, Wolf Alice, Declan McKenna, Tom Grennan and Franz Ferdinand.

Day tickets and full weekend festival tickets are available from 9am on 1st February 2018 here
