Tom Grennan, Confidence Man, Blossoms and Arctic Monkeys wow fans on third day of TRNSMT

THE third day of TRNSMT was yet another scorcher as thousands headed to Glasgow Green for jam-packed bill of top acts.

They were treated to the UK festival exclusive of Arctic Monkeys, who were joined on-stage by friend and fellow TRNSMT performer Miles Kane.

They topped the bill alongside Interpol, Nothing But Thieves, Sigrid and local favourites Fatherson.

Here are some of the acts that impressed the most.

Tom Grennan

Rising star Tom Grennan was the man tasked with opening the main stage and he did it with aplomb.

If you’re a football fan, chances are you’ve heard the gravelly-voiced 23-year-old’s music, as his song Found What I’ve Been Looking For is used in the titles for Sky Sports’ Premier League coverage and also on the latest FIFA game soundtrack.

Grennan, who releases his debut album on Thursday, showed he had plenty more cracking tracks in a set that got the crowd ready for a busy day of music – and slapping on the factor 50.

Speaking to The Sunday Post before he took to the stage, he said: “The Glasgow crowd are always up for it, it always just goes off. They’re up for it all day, every day whether it’s rain, sun, snow, sleet, anything!”

Confidence Man

The King Tut’s Stage is a place for up and coming acts to showcase their talents, and this Australian group will certainly have won a few new fans on their showing at TRNSMT.

A phenomenally fun set, complete with brilliant choreography, brief costume changes and a whole lot of energy, had the bumper crowd loving every minute.

 

Blossoms

Cover versions have proved to be an interesting element to the festival.

James Bay’s risky Tina Turner rendition on Friday and Miles Kane’s version of Hot Stuff on Sunday certainly pricked fans’ ears, but Blossoms perhaps triggered the biggest double-take of the weekend.

They led revellers in a seamless singalong medley of You’re Gorgeous, Half The World Away and… Last Christmas.

Odd as it may have been, it was a lovely moment in a great set from the Stockport band, who seem destined to be headliners one day with big numbers like Charlemagne.

Arctic Monkeys

The crowd go wild for Arctic Monkeys (Euan Robertson for TRNSMT Festival)

 

Headliners for the final night of the three-day weekend were festival favourites Arctic Monkeys.

They lived up to the billing with a set that encompassed over a decade of being one of Britain’s top bands.

Early single I Bet That You Look Good on the Dancefloor sounded as good as ever, and Four Out Of Five from their most recent album was well received.

The setlist was a handpicked selection of their brilliant back catalogue, including Brianstorm, Crying Lightning and Arabella, and Miles Kane came out for a wonderful rendition of 505.

Some fans may have been left disappointed with the lack of classic tracks Fluorescent Adolescent and Mardy Bum – plus surely When The Sun Goes Down would have been ideal as the sun set over Glasgow Green.

But the Sheffield band delivered more than enough to send the crowds home happy, and to cool down after a few days of scorching sunshine.


The festival returns to Glasgow Green next Friday, with Queen & Adam Lambert, Texas and The Darkness as well as Sunday featuring The Killers, CHVRCHES and Franz Ferdinand.
