GLASGOW music festival TRSNMT will move to September, it has been confirmed. 

The event which traditionally takes place in July was cancelled last year for the first time in its history due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Now bosses are hoping the deliver the three-day festival on September 10 to 12 - with The Chemical Brothers, Primal Scream, Dermot Kennedy, and Becky Hill all added to the line-up.

In what will be a blow to many music fans, Scotland's man of the moment Lewis Capaldi will not be playing the event. The Chemical Brothers will now take Capaldi's headlining slot on Sunday, September 12. 

TRNSMT however said they have confirmed Capaldi for 2022. The Scottish singer previously impressed audiences at the 2019 festival. 

Bosses revealed that some artists faced difficulty rescheduling before stating Capaldi won't be playing the event. 

A statement read: "Naturally, a few artists have faced challenges with the rescheduled dates, so we have made some changes to the line-up. We’ve worked hard to secure a fantastic bill in September including festival heavyweights The Chemical Brothers in place of Lewis Capaldi, plus the addition of Primal Scream, Dermot Kennedy, Becky Hill, and more. Although Lewis won’t be joining us this year, we’re pleased to confirm he will be back to play TRNSMT in July 2022.”

Liam Gallagher will still headline the stage on the Saturday event while the Courteeners will be opening headliners on the Friday.

Glasgow Times:

Festival Director Geoff Ellis said: “We are delighted to announce our September dates for TRNSMT today.

"We had initially hoped for the festival to take place in July as planned, but a combination of the timetable to exit lockdown and the preparation time needed to put on an event of TRNSMT’s scale means this wasn’t possible.

"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.”
