Forget T In The Park, TRNSMT Is The New Scottish Festival Everyone Should Be Talking About
So hands up, I’ve never actually been to T in the Park.
I always wanted to go drawn by the sheer chaos but deterred by the thought of getting back to London after a three-day bender. Last year, I went to twelve festivals – some with work, some not – but I left our T in the Park passes to our intern Alfie.
Safe to say… he hated it. Here’s a clip of him attempting to interview there:
Sheer carnage. So I was pretty gutted when it was announced that T in the Park was closing its doors, albeit justifiably amidst some pretty horrendous alleged charges of rape, a stolen ATM and the deaths of two seventeen-year-olds.
But thankfully Glasgow has stepped in to fill Scotland’s festival shaped hole with the brand new TRNSMT. Quite literally dancing on T in the Park’s grave, the festival will be held on the same weekend, 7th – 10th July, and has one of the biggest line-up’s of the season.
Headlined by giants Radiohead, Kasabian and of course Biffy Clyro, the festival is also hosting the likes of The 1975, London Grammar, Rag ‘n’ Bone Man, Stormzy and Catfish and The Bottlemen.
Day tickets are £59.50, 2 day-ers £110 and a full weekend pass is £155.
