TRNSMT festival is to take over the BBC Scotland channel for a celebration of the biggest and best performances from the event’s three-year history.

Presented by Edith Bowman, the special broadcast will air on the weekend the 2020 festival was scheduled to take place at Glasgow Green, before it was forced into cancellation in the wake of the coronavirus crisis.

Gutted ticket holders were expecting a stellar line-up for this year’s event, including appearances from Liam Gallagher and The Courteeners.

Bowman has covered all three years of BBC Scotland’s TRNSMT coverage so it seemed right that the Scottish presenter introduce the three hour-long highlights package between 9:00pm and midnight on Saturday 11 July.

Music fans can look forward to viewing some of TRNSMT’s most iconic moments from 2017, 2018 and 2019, including headline sets from Scots rockers Biffy Clyro, man-of-the-moment Lewis Capaldi and the legendary Radiohead.

Bowman said: “TRNSMT is one of the highlights of my year and I’m looking forward to reliving some of the many music moments from the last three years on the BBC Scotland channel.

“Like so many other festival goers, I’m going to miss being in Glasgow Green for this year’s TRNSMT but this TV takeover is the next best thing. TRNSMT always has a great atmosphere – there’s something really unique about a city festival. So no matter where you are in the country, sit down, tune in and enjoy the TRNSMT takeover with me.”

Gareth Hydes, Commissioning Editor, Radio and Events at BBC Scotland said: “While we can’t enjoy the fantastic live music of the TRNSMT Festival this year, we hope to bring you the next best thing on BBC Scotland.  For one night only, we’re handing over our airwaves to the great music and stellar acts from the last three Festivals.

“We’re delighted that Edith Bowman will be able to join us once again this year as she guides us through this evening of highlights.  It will be a night of brilliant music to brighten up your summer – whatever the weather!”
