WITH less than one week to go until TRNSMT takes over Glasgow Green for the third time, Tenement TV are taking you through everything you need to know about Scotland’s biggest music festival.
One of Scottish music’s biggest success stories, Gerry Cinnamon, has become a permanent fixture at the city centre festival. 2018 saw the ‘Belter’ singer make the step from the King Tuts stage to the Main Stage, providing one of the biggest singalongs of last year’s festival. Set to move even further up the bill and pull an even bigger audience, this Glasgow chanter is going to no doubt pull one of the festival’s biggest crowds. Another artist making the jump this year is Sigrid. The singer-songwriter provided one of 2018’s highlights with a set peppered with pop perfection and her huge hit ‘Don’t Feel Like Crying’. Hoping to channel some of 2018’s TRNSMT sun into her joyous Main Stage set this year.
TRNSMT is a festival so rich in Scottish talent, and this year is no exception. Lothian indie-rockers, The Snuts, are one of the most hotly-tipped bands in the country and after a sweaty, euphoric set, made possible by their dedicated fanbase at 2018’s TRNSMT, the boys are stepping up the stages and stepping up their game for 2019. The four-piece will be joining fellow TRNSMT star, singer-songwriter, social media sensation and friend of Liam Gallagher, Lewis Capaldi, on a tour later this year.
The opening day of TRNSMT 2019 is rounded off by grime superstar Stormzy. Following a huge Glastonbury headline set last week, which was met with immense admiration from fans, media, artists and more, grabbing headlines and hearts across the world. He returns to TRNSMT for the second time, following his sweaty Saturday set in 2017. Playing with different genres in soul, gospel and grime, the rapper seamlessly blends swagger, soulfulness and storytelling in his tunes. After a huge set in 2017, Catfish and the Bottlemen will return to the festival’s Saturday night once again, with an epic indie singalong, including a namesake nod to the host city, in their 2016 track, Glasgow. Also making a return this year is Sunday’s headliner George Ezra. After a set he enjoyed so much in 2017, questioning ‘Why isn’t every gig in Scotland?’, the singer-songwriter returns to Glasgow Green, armed with more toe-tapping hits, set to round of the festival in singalong style.
