Since Ellis has went back on his word for everything else can we expect C Harris’s to headline next year?

Maybe he could do one of the after shows.

yeah calvin harris the act bigger than any trnsmt headliner this year will do a 1000 or so people after show instead of headlining. just become the booker already 😂

with stormzy and gerry, gerry had done similar shows the crowd for him was massive at community, same for nbhd weekender. Even if its an early slot he still had the same crowd. To be honest the weekend looked busy and sold out. I don’t think djs will be coming as even if the headliners are newer the core day is still fully indie just a few extras like Stormzy and jess glynne etc.. They have kind of booked all the new headliners now though, I think they have really left themself in a bad place for booking the next year or two as Kasabian won’t be back so soon, seems sergio is doing that side project. Killers, AM, Liam etc used up. I reckon maybe noel and courteeners must be in with a shout but we’ll see.

Do Kaiser Chiefs even play the Hydro? No chance are they popular enough to headline.

Surely Paolo Nutini is due an album in the coming year -  he'd be perfect.

Kaiser Chiefs aren't as big here as in other places. Hence no Glasgow date on their last two arena tours and Usher Hall on this one. They'd probably be third from the top at the very most.

As for Calvin, if I wasn't sure that the council would take serious issue with it, I could have seen it happening given what they're going for now.

Was going to complain about the average age being 13, but never queued at the bar once. Big Calvin headlining within the next couple of years is probably inevitable at this point. 

Suppose they’ve found their audience that’ll sell it out every year.

Is there anyone they can test the water with regarding Calvin? I still think they could run into serious problems with that booking. A dance act not quite big enough to headline as a sub? They'll definitely be looking at it.

Worth noting that Catfish and the Bottlemen looked like great fun last night.

Not really sure if there’s another act like him capable of headlining. To be fair they got away with him headlining summer sessions a few years back so they might get away with him doing trnsmt.

Catfish definitely looked like they belonged as headliners though, fair play to them.

Paolo’s actually a good shout, seems to be appearing more and more in pubs around Paisley. Warming up for a comeback possibly.

Went the Friday as I won tickets for it. I’m 25 and I definitely felt out of place. 

I did enjoy it tbf. Not a fan of any the acts but Gerry got the crowd going and created a good atmosphere. I was going to just leave after him but bumped in to a couple folk I used to go to T with so just stayed for Stormzy. Bit of an exodus after Gerry finished. I don’t understand why he headlined and Gerry subbed tbh. Gerry is a much bigger act up here. 

As Ellis has went back on his word about booking acts aimed at a more mature audience, I can’t see myself going to this ever again. I expect the likes of Calvin Harris and other mainstream acts to be headlining/subbing now. It sells so they have to do what they have to do. I’ll just have to keep trying to get Glasto tickets every year from now on! 

The Summer Sessions line-up is quite incredible this year tbf. Imagine those 3 acts headlining a festival? Can’t ask for much bigger.

Assuming summer sessions does well i can see the 1975 headlining a day next year. 

Noel G must also be in the frame.

Really looking forward to seeing Ezra. Isle of Wight totally sold me on him. Glasto didn't look as good but since this is a headline show for him, I'm still looking forward to it.

Coming off a night shift meant I have to miss Wombats. Oh well.

Social media is awash with people that were there saying the city centre was a war zone yesterday.

Maybe ticket sales are better but that’s what happens when you cater for pissed up under 16s.

It is what it is now but hopefully next year they can do one of the days for a older crowd and the other 2 mixed.

Friday-Gerry Cinnamon/Capaldi

Saturday  Noel/Fatboy slim

Sunday Kasabian/courteeners

With a sprinkling of twodoor cinema club happy Monday’s Tame impala and sleeper.

Tame Impala, rightly, will not be booked for this. And if they were to play a festival, then they should be headlining. Simple as.

Yep. That's my thinking too.
