Would agree with this. I couldn’t name one of their songs but seen them live at T plus Kendal and they  put on a decent live show. Pretty sure the T was up at Balado so they’ve worked their way up to this.

Anywayz, was talking to my 15 year old nephew yesterday about Trnsmt. He’ll be 16 come July. Him and his mates have all got tickets for the 3 days. He is well excited and hyper. I felt very old but content to move on.

Yeah, end of the day Reading sells out every year and their target audience is the same age practically. One thing that will never change is a school leavers crowd loving the idea of their 1st festival...What does change over the years is what that generation of people listen to and the quality of output but I'm sure rewind a few years and many of them will think the 9/10 years previous wasn't all that either and the same works for going forward. It's no secret really that the amount of indie/rock acts that were around 10/12 years ago haven't been that sustainable over the years with them either dying or just motion crawling now. It's not also no secret that pop char if you like and the grime scene etc is having it's biggest influence whereas back then it was about but really I'm the mainstream.

saw catfish last night, and am not their biggest fan- but always pleasantly surprised by how exciting they can be live (considering their studio albums are dull) 

if you don’t like their songs massively, you’ll still be able to appreciate showmanship for sure

Watched them headline Kendall last year and was impressed ! They did put on a headline show

Just saw an email from TRNSMT for 10% off the three-day ticket being extended. Assuming that ticket sales haven't been that good then? 

In fairness though just my view, Friday is completely awful!, but every days 2nd stage is pretty weak.

I was waiting for Friday to be an instant sellout because of Gerry.

I'm not 100% thrilled with the lineup & not everything's going to be for me but some of the lineups don't make sense to me. Like Years & Years, Gerry Cinnamon then Stormzy one after the other doesn't make sense for me as they all have very different demographics. Saturday isn't really for me but it does make sense, just don't think CATB are headliners in my opinion but they'll still get a decent turnout

None of them are main stage headliners except for Ezra being close.

Exactly! I like George Ezra but I understand why people don't like him but I don't understand how people think George Ezra isn't a sensible choice for headlining a festival considering he's about to go on a 10+ UK arena tour when all the dates sold out instantly. Not saying he's going to sell out TRNSMT but there is a decent lineup behind him.

They are also headling indie fest in Ireland and cital Fest

Has anyone heard how ticket sales are going? :) 

I heard the 10% off on 3 day tickets deal has been extended, can't be great.

Seriously though @thewayiam , reading is never a strong sell out and didn't really sell out last year and hasn't 'really' sold out for a few years now - and that's not even getting started on Leeds. I think to keep Leeds going they really need to consider having some more acts only do one of the festivals, this year up there is going to be really poor with no Liam G/Courteeners/James/Noel G/DMA's etc, only Blossoms this year who don't have as big pull as the gallaghers or courteeners. we'll see i guess

End of the day strong or not, if a 90k festival can sell out regardless of how close to the actual fest it comes...obvs not day tickets but the weekend and early bird at £20 a pop, plus run a 2nd site that does enough to keep going then it's doing something that the other major fests that have collapsed have failed to.

Went last year for 2 days and really enjoyed it. Saw Catfish for the first time in my hometown of Hull on Saturday and couldn't believe how good they are live, absolutely electric performance.

Chatting with the couple me and the wife went with last year and came to the conclusion that Glasto is a no no this year in terms of holidays and finances so we've booked the Saturday and Sunday for Trnsmt, cant wait !!

Theres six of us going, 4 of us went last year, booked an apartment less than half a mile from Glasgow Green, travelling from Hull on train. The lineup for the Sundays not the best but my friends love Ezra so couldn't say no to the second day, plus after going last year we know our way to Merchant Street for a few drinks beforehand each day. I absolutely loved the Sunday last year hitting a few bars round Glasgow before we went in to see Interpol.

Certainly plenty pubs close by if you don’t fancy some of the music. Would recommend booking a table in the winged ox, just next to the green.

Cheers mate, we found some great bars round merchant square last year, plus an amazing burger and ribs place which we’ll be heading back to this year

Don’t disagree about the pubs out in the west end but....if I was an out of towner coming in to Glasgow for Trnsmt then I reckon there is enough in the merchant city to keep anyone happy for the drinking time you’d have available.

Thats what we’ve done the last couple of years. Plenty decent places to eat too.

We loved merchant city, our apartment is 5 minutes from merchant as well so we won’t be venturing outside of there and the festival, what’s the point

I live in West End, and there are plenty cracking bars, but if you're from out of town I would probably recommend finding watering holes around Merchant City, just means you don't have the extra effort of going to West End and back.

Maggie Mays is nice for a cheap and cheerful pint, usually pretty packed on TRNSMT days. There's a decent sized Brewdog (called the Doghouse) as well, and a load of places in Merchant Square - O'Neills, etc.

Nothing to do with trnsmt but the prodigy were one of the best headliners I seen a titp.

Lost count the amount of times I saw them from early raves playing the likes of android to present day..sad news.

RIP Keith Flint....
