Five new acts have been added to the first TRNSMT festival lineup, taking place in Glasgow Green from 7-9 July.
Friday’s main stage will see the first play of some tracks from Everything Everything‘s forthcoming new album, as well as a set from JP Cooper – the voice of Jonas Blue’s ‘Perfect Strangers’.
Irish rock n rollers The Strypes will be joining the already impressive Sunday lineup featuring the likes of Biffy Clyro, The 1975 and The View.
Local favourites Gerry Cinnamon and Be Charlotte have been added to the King Tut’s Stage, showcasing up-and-coming talent. Gerry Cinnamon has built up a huge buzz in his home city and won Best Live Act at last year’s Scottish Alternative Music Awards. Be Charlotte is also known for her unique live shows, adding a digital visual element to compliment her electropop sound.

This comes just after the announcement of the Jack Rocks 7 tent, a curated selection of bands touring festivals across the UK. The likes of Trampolene and The Sundowners have been hand picked by Jack Daniel’s in partnership with club night This Feeling to represent the UK’s best breakthrough acts.
TRNSMT is taking the place of the legendary T in the Park at least for 2017, after the series of problems T faced in recent years. It’s billed as being aimed at a slightly older crowd, with no camping facilities and a selection of street food and cocktails soon to be announced.
