Organizers of the Glasgow Green festival have confirmed that the event will take place at capacity. You can find out what we know so far. Officially, the TRNSMT Festival will take place in 2021.
Since the coronavirus pandemic has caused restrictions on the event, it has been moved back a month from its original July date. Now, it appears that the move paid off, as the Scottish festival has been announced for this year.
The festival’s new dates, who’s on the lineup, and whether tickets are still available are all revealed.
The dates for TRNSMT 2021
The festival will now take place from the 10th to the 12th of September, after being pushed back a few months owing to COVID concerns.
“September gives us the opportunity to put on the best festival we can for our fans after such a long time without any live music, and we will, of course, work with all relevant authorities to ensure we follow any guidelines that may be in place in September.”Festival director Geoff Ellis previously explained

The celebration will go place without the use of face masks or social isolation.
Physical barriers will be removed and gathering restrictions will be lifted as of Monday, according to the Scottish Government.
However, it is understood that TRNSMT organizers will still need to apply for a license if the festival attracts more than 5,000 people.
Mr Ellis said on BBC Good Morning Scotland earlier today that he will meet with the Scottish Government today to negotiate admittance rules, but that anybody attending the festival will need to do a lateral flow test first.
He is also encouraging people to get their Covid jabs and even said he’d be willing for the festival to have a vaccination bus if the government agrees.
He said: “I think they [Scottish Government] want to encourage as many people as possible to get vaccinated and I would say the same.
“I’ve even suggested to the Scottish Government if they want to put a vaccination bus into TRNSMT we’d be happy to host that so people can get vaccinated while they’re there.”
