TRNSMT Festival confirm first wave of artists for 2019

Here's who's heading to Glasgow Green in July.

Organisers of TRNSMT Festival 2019 have confirmed their first wave of artists, including the headliners for this year’s festival.

Stormzy, Catfish and the Bottlemen, George Ezra, Gerry Cinnamon, Bastille and Snow Patrol will appear on the main stage at the festival this year.

TRNSMT takes place at Glasgow Green from 13-15 July 2019.

Other artists announced for the festival today include Years & Years, AJ Tracey, Richard Ashcroft, DMA’s, Jess Glynne, The Kooks, Sigrid, Example and many more.

UK hip-hop superstar Stormzy will headline the festival on Friday night. The rapper who made his TRNSMT debut in 2017 has enjoyed a phenomenal few years. His breakthrough album Gang Signs & Prayer debuted at No.1 on the Official UK Albums Chart, earning the Londoner two BRIT Awards, an Ivor Novello Award and six MOBOs.

Catfish and the Bottlemen will bring their singalong-indie-anthems to TRNSMT 2019, closing the main stage on Saturday night. The band are currently gearing up for the release of their hotly anticipated fourth studio album The Balance, featuring lead single Longshot. 

Closing the festival on Sunday night will be British troubadour George Ezra. George released his second album Staying at Tamara’s in 2018, with the record becoming the biggest selling album of the year by a single artist. The LP spawned the No.1 smash hit single Shotgun.
