TRNSMT Festival 2020 announces line-up

The festival returns to Glasgow Green from 10 - 12 July 2020.

For the fourth consecutive year, TRNSMT will take to Glasgow Green for three days of live music, from 10 – 12 July 2020.

Following his very special guest slot on the main stage in 2019, Lewis Capaldi will return to headline the festival on the Sunday night. The announcement caps off a year that has seen him release his record breaking debut album, and reach the top of the stateside singles chart with UK No.1 Somebody You Love.

He’ll share headline duties across the weekend with British icon Liam Gallagher, bringing hits from his huge catalogue including anthemic Oasis tracks and cuts from his own illustrious solo career. Gallagher will headline the Saturday night at TRNSMT.

Both will follow an opening night headline appearance by Courteeners, celebrating the release of their latest album More. Again. Forever. Liam Fray and co will bring with them iconic hits such as Not Nineteen Forever, Are You In Love With A Notion?, and Lose Control.

“Yaaaaaas,” Lewis Capaldi celebrates. “I’ve been lucky enough to play TRNSMT every year since its inception and to be a headliner is absolutely wild. Things are about to get chubby and sexy, fast. See you up the road next year!”

The trio of headliners will be joined by huge names in indie, rock, rap and pop.

Foals will appear at TRNSMT following the release of their No.1 album, the Mercury Prize nominated Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost – Part 2. Former Stone Roses frontman Ian Brown will also make his TRNSMT debut following this year’s Ripples album release.

Having been forced to pull out in 2019, Snow Patrol will take to the festival in 2020 off the back of their recently unveiled Reworked project.

Pop arrives in full force courtesy of Rita Ora, for her very first time at TRNSMT, whilst Sam Fender will bring his massive indie melodies to Glasgow Green.

Blossoms will take to the Main Stage on the Friday, and Twin Atlantic will make their hometown return on the Saturday.

Other acts joining the bill include Keane, Ticketmaster New For 2020 pick and rising rap sensation Aitch, and the Mercury Prize nominated Little Simz.

The first wave of artists will join plenty more to be announced across the festival’s Main Stage, King Tut’s Stage, and the Queen Tut’s Stage.

Here’s how that line-up looks so far:
