Organisers of TRNSMT have announced that the music festival will be rescheduled for September.
The event, which takes place in Glasgow Green, was due to be held in July having already suffered postponement last year due to the pandemic.
Festival director Geoff Ellis said the timetable for coming out of lockdown would rule out hosting the festival on the planned dates, but the move to the weekend of September 10-12 would allow for the “best festival”.
He 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.”
There have been some changes to the line-up due to the change in dates. The Chemical Brothers replace Lewis Capaldi as Sunday headliners, and the likes of Primal Scream, Dermot Kennedy and Becky Hill have been added to the bill.
Capaldi is set to play the festival in 2022.
A statement from festival organisers said: “With the possibility of some ongoing restrictions still being in place in July, we’ve taken the decision to move TRNSMT Festival to 10th-12th September 2021 for this year.
“We honestly can’t wait to be back on Glasgow Green with you and want to make sure TRNSMT 2021 is the best festival weekend of your life. To ensure we help keep you, our artists and our staff safe, we will continue to follow the advice outlined by the government and local council each step of the way.
“Some of the acts can’t make the new dates so we’ve made a few changes including the addition of The Chemical Brothers, who will be replacing Lewis Capaldi as the Sunday headliner. Lewis will definitely re-join us again in 2022. Check out the new line-up for other changes.”
Tickets already purchased for the event will be valid for the equivalent days in September 2021. Ticket agents will provide further information to those who have bought tickets and can no longer attend.
