Stormzy ain't selling 50k tickets in Glasgow alone. It would have been the same with Robyn.

Neither will shift 50k probably but obviously Stormzy will do a better job. Can't beleive this needs explained.

The robyn being a headliner is quite the stretch.. possibly juts playing one day but a thought it was interesting as it could have been an idea in what direction they where taking the line ups.. maybe more like T. Robyn being booked in glasgow would bring a huge  audience, maybe not 50K but she has a large cult/gay following so thats why i mentioned this as it would make the lines ups more interesting but its obviously going to be very generic and the like somone said the aim is to sell tickets..

I’m sure that Robyn is headlining Roskilde however she has a massive following in Scandanavia. Not a chance would she be anywhere near headline material for a Scottish festival.

It'll sell out regardless of who's playing.

i mean i strongly disagree but ok, only 3 acts have sold out (or near enough) out the 9 days theyve done so far, kasabian, liam gallagher and arctic monkeys. even biffy clyro didnt sell out, i personally doubt any day will this year, possibly the saturday if they throw gerry on as a sub.

Is this because of the absence of the ABC? Swg3 isn't exactly the most convenient to get to. 

Good point this. I miss the abc. Decent pubs round about it to.

swg3 also good but location not great as you say.

Will the abc ever open again do we think ?

Was in the news this week they’ve got permission to demolish it, looks like it’ll be turned to student flats.

Few petitions going around to stop it but looks doubtful. Shame cause it was probably my favourite Glasgow venue.

Ah didn’t know about that cheers.

Sad news, was up that way last weekend and it wasn’t looking good.

Yeah I really liked it. Real shame.

Going to Mono next Friday. Never been there before I don’t think. Suppose that’s the upside for the other venues.

I think we’re now looking at Tuesday next week for an announcement.

Doesn’t look good at all, it seems like certain people are set on refurbishing sauchiehall street, so the ABC doesn’t have much of chance. Never been in Mono before but heard good things.

I’d say either Monday or Tuesday for the announcement, let them begin the presale on Wednesday.

Had many a good night out at uni in the abc and was decent venue for gigs. Shame more of an effort isn't being made to save it but art school got fixed twice. I'll miss the disco ball.

Gigs inside Swg3 are because of this. Galvinisers Yard isn't as that's just a summer thing. 

Lemonheads gig on Saturday night was in Galvanisers Yard.

It reassures me how wrong you are here as maybe we will get decent headliners after all.

I think you're confusing the galvanizers room that they've added and the galvanizers yard outdoor space, this is a photo of the yard from last year

No it wasn't. The Yard is the outside part. Galviniers Room is the inside part. 

 

Thanks

Going to the Galvanizers Room for the first time in April to see Ward Thomas, interesting to see what its like.

I saw Belle & Sebastian in the Galvanizers Yard last summer, was another sunny day and it felt like a great place for a gig with the trees behind the stage giving it a mini-festival feel.

Your now usual reminder that absolutely nobody is being expected to sell 50k day tickets or anywhere close to that.

Ok, ok, this will be my last prediction for headliners and subs:

Friday: Stormzy, Richard Ashcroft, The Streets, Slaves

Saturday: George Ezra, Snow Patrol (special guests), Primal Scream, Lewis Capaldi

Sunday: Catfish and the Bottlemen, Ian Brown, Gerry Cinnamon, DMA’s

No way are Kooks playing 4th down, headlining Community this year, 3rd at R&L. And strokes won't sub anyone, they would never agree to that and if they did they are wasted on a Muse day anyway, could have a way cheaper headliner if Strokes were to sub

That would easy shift 50k tickets just out of Scottish sales alone. Why not just give the people what they want instead of this Doddie Ezra and Stormzy nonsense. 

These bands all have the exact same fanbase. For the price of TRNSMT this wouldn't be even close to selling 50k tickets, maybe 30k at a push probably not even that many. TRNSMT needs varied days to try and get lots of kinds of people in.

Struggling to think of a sub for Stormzy. Dunno if they'll go for someone of similar genre or pap on like G Cinnamon to get people buying tickets just for him.

What about Anne Marie as a sub or 3rd down for Stormzy.
