Scotland's Biggest Music Festival? What to expect from TRNSMT 2022
This weekend brings us TRNSMT 2022, anticipated to be the biggest music festival in Scotland this year. Whether you’re a Glasgow local or a visitor to the Dear Green Place for the music, there’s a lot to anticipate. We’re here to cover what you can expect from the festival, timings of the headliners and general top tips for thriving at TRSMT.
What is TRSNMT Festival?
TRNSMT is an annual non-camping festival hosted during summer within Glasgow. It is well known to headline mainstream and popular music artists, and was awarded ‘best new festival’ in 2017. TRNSMT is well remembered for hosting massive names like Radiohead, Arctic Monkeys, The Killers and Stormzy, building itself a respected reputation over the years.
TRSNMT put on its first festival in 2017, shortly after the much loved T in the Park was announced it was ceasing to put on the festival. Critics were unsure if a non-camping festival would be able to live up to T in the Park’s much loved chaotic atmosphere; however the first event in 2017 sold over 120,000 tickets and hosted huge artists such as Kasabian and Biffy Clyro. Since 2017, the festival has continued to annually impress attendees with the line up and atmosphere, and has grown to become arguably one of Scotland’s biggest mainstream music festivals.
Where is it and how can I get there?
TRNSMT is hosted fairly central in Glasgow, in a park named Glasgow Green. Glasgow Green is easy to walk to from majority of major train and bus stations in central Glasgow; however it is advised that taxis and Ubers will be available on the day also. It’s also highly advised that trains are not the best mode of transport at the moment due to rail strikes across Scotland. TRNSMT released the following statement on travelling by train;
‘There are last-minute cancellations and extremely limited rail services across Scotland at the moment. Please plan ahead and don’t rely on trains to get you to and from TRNSMT, check the ScotRail website for the latest information, and look at alternative travel options.’
An alternative to the trains is to get the Subway in Glasgow. Glasgow Green can be accessed from three Subway Stations all within a fifteen-minute walk - Bridge Street, Buchanan Street and St Enoch.
If you are being dropped off, it is advised to be dropped at Glasgow Green Football Centre.
