TRNSMT Festival has confirmed that attendees will not require a vaccination passport to enter this year's event.

After 18 months of live music being off the cards, cinch presents TRNSMT is urging fans to support its efforts in making the event "the welcome back celebration the country has been waiting for." 

Organisers have introduced some of the strictest entry conditions of any large-scale event in the UK for the three-day celebration to minimise the risk of Covid-19.

Bosses have said that the recent announcement about vaccination passports in Scotland will not apply to TRNSMT 2021.

The only Covid related condition for entry is that those attending the festival will be required to take a lateral flow test, upload their result, and show their confirmation email, text message or screengrab to stewards.

Anyone unable to provide proof of a negative test result will be denied admittance.

Fans attending multiple days across the weekend will be required to take a second test 48 hours after the first one.

For instance, anyone taking their first test on Friday morning before arrival must also take another test on Sunday morning to enter the festival.

On-site Covid measures include over 140 hand sanitisation stations, enhanced cleaning schedules and more hand-washing facilities than ever before.

TRNSMT is also asking fans to avoid car sharing with people outside of their household and to make sure to wear face masks if travelling on public transport.

Face masks are also recommended to be worn in any queues on entry, as well as toilets or bar areas.

The festival is also operating a completely cashless site for the first time as an additional Covid precaution - with all vendors accepting contactless payments.

Geoff Ellis, Festival Director of TRNSMT said: "For lots of people, this will be the first big weekend out they’ve had in over a year – long overdue and extremely well-deserved after some really tough months.

"But we all need to work together and we’re reaching out to fans to make sure they order and take lateral flow tests 48 hours prior to  entry and upload the result, use the on-site hygiene points and wear a mask when queuing.

"It’s impossible to completely eliminate the risk of COVID but we’re doing our best to reduce it as much as possible."

Welfare areas at the event will be the largest ever this year - offering a safe, quiet space where revellers can relax or speak to a trained support team if they're feeling overwhelmed.

Ellis continues: "We want everyone to have an absolutely first-class weekend out with their friends enjoying live music so make sure you look after yourself and each other so that it’s the weekend you’ve been waiting for.

"I know there are a lot of excited fans out there, so our trained welfare team will also be on hand to look out for everyone and provide support if needed."

The festival will be working closely with Police Scotland and is warning attendees that anyone caught with illegal drugs will be denied entry or escorted from the site.

Items including fireworks, smoke devices and flares are strictly banned.

Fans are also asked to enter and exit the festival quietly and to use all of the bins and toilets available to respect the neighbouring community.
