TRNSMT Festival 2017

Recommended Posts

Nothing confirmed yet, however if you think/look back at the TitP music comments and then look at the bands/names listed here over the last day....

TitP - lots of moans re pop acts where it's a singer with dancers or a DJ, aimed at a 14~18yo audience

Trans - all are BANDS, with singers, guitarists, drummers, keyboards, etc... and been together for quite a few years, def not aimed at the 14~18yo crowd

We'll still see some DJ's but i think it'll be along the likes of Duke Dumont or simply party DJs like Guilty Pleasures

 

Another thing to think about as people have posted is that if you are on here you are likely to go to a fair few gigs/festivals (last year i was not at many, but 2015 would have been well over 100 large gigs), so are likely to have seen a lot of the bigger UK bands over the last few years, but how many that will attend this don't go to gigs reguarly or come on here ?

 

Ta, D

Not Brian Wilson. I seen him last summer at a Pitchfork in Chicago. He was embarrassingly bad. 

I wouldn`t rule him out. Just been announced for Kendal at the end of July where they are billing it as him performing his tour in the UK for the last time.

Radiohead is a big coup for them to get. However Kasabian and Biffy would be a bit meh just cause they always seems to headline

 

if this works does anyone else think they will go ahead with this rather than titp?

Yip. Especially if the story that the BBC are coming with them on this 3 day thing is true. As long as no shit goes down in the city centre like some of the madness happening in the T campsites then there is money to be made for the Council and everyone`s a winner.

I agree about Kasabian and Biffy. Thought they might have given Arcade Fire a nod especially when the Cure were rumoured ( what happened to that ).

Radiohead, The Cure, Arcade Fire - that would have been a proper move away from TITP.

For the time being in just gonna close my eyes to the articles saying Kasabian, based on them, Foals & Franz Ferdinand being exclusives elsewhere

Record also saying it's

Friday - Radiohead

Saturday - Kasabian

Sunday - Biffy

Wouldn't normally place much stock in anything the Record says but it's got a pretty cosy relationship with DF so I wouldn't be surprised if that's true. That would be pretty disappointing.

That will do me fine started to shit myself when I seen the killers getting mentioned.

You can rule out Foals and Kasabian. Their sources aren't as good as they used to be basically. 

Why have we to rule out kasabian????

Although hasn't stopped this kind of stuff happening before so it wouldn't surprise me if they were headlining this anyway.

I'm sure Belladrum was billed as their only Scottish show

No idea of the veracity of this but just been told by someone claiming to be 'in the know' that Radiohead, Kasabian and Biffy are indeed the three with Liam and the 1975 also signed up. 

Might just be someone taking a punt based on what they've read in the papers.

Just seems strange that R&L have Kasabian on their poster as a UK festival exclusive. Other than Radiohead I'd be givung the sat and Sunday a miss. Same old headliners as T and the stale line ups at T was one of the reasons people had stopped going.

Kinda know where your coming from but it's what we're all after is it not?rock and indie bands no fucktard Dj's.

Kasbian are top drawer live,al be very happy if they get announced.

I just don't get the popularity of Kasabian but it would be a dull world if we all liked the same stuff.

I'm no fan of their records, but live they're one of the more-impressive acts.

Could they get away with a technicality saying this isn't strictly a festival?

I'm guessing that's the angle that'll be used by R/L to excuse Kasabian, yet the publicity for TRNSMT calls it a festival.
